Do not fill this in!== Why document injuries? == To give you a better chance of winning your case. Though having pictures or even video of your injuries won’t guarantee that you‘ll win, it can drastically improve your chances. It’s harder for a cop to prove he used the “minimum force necessary to subdue the perpetrator” if the “perpetrator” has photos of giant bruises on her neck and cut marks on her wrists from where her handcuffs were on too tight. Also, reports from a doctor can create a record of injuries that don’t show up on film: torn muscles, concussions, etc. Documenting your injuries simply means that you get written and visual proof of them so that even after they’ve healed, you can prove that they existed. If you are thinking of suing the police or filing a complaint, evidence of brutality can help you build a stronger case. Here are a few tips to make documenting easier.
