Personal Injury Case Builder Form
When you begin our personal injury intake process, you should be ready to tell us about your incident. Whether it was a car accident, slip and fall or dog bite, we want to hear the all the details and specifics. Be descriptive but keep the information relevant. This will help us to better assess your claim.
Step 9 - Writing Victim Impact Statement (VIS)
When you’re the victim of an automobile collision, it can have a devastating impact on your life. People experience painful injuries, lifelong physical injuries, trauma, PTSD, anxiety, stress and loss of enjoyment. Additionally, you could have lost a friend or loved one who was in the collision with you.
One factor that can significantly impact your case is a Victim Impact Statement. A VIS is a personally written account of how the collision affected you. Many times, a serious motor vehicle collision can have long-standing consequences. This VIS is an opportunity for you to explain the full extent of your injuries, pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment. For example, a police report may mention that you had a broken leg, but it likely won’t mention other consequences like:
- Missing work
- Cost, time and hassle of medical appointments
- Canceled vacations or important plans
- The impact your injury has on others (family, friends, co-workers)
Your VIS is a comprehensive overview of how your life has been changed due to the personal injury and event itself.
