Personal Injury Consultation: What to Bring?

Categories: Personal Injury, Uncategorized

If you or your loved one has been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should consider finding an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you understand your rights and options. When meeting with your Tampa personal injury lawyer for a consultation, you will want to give that attorney as much helpful information as you can, so that he or she may accurately evaluate your case. Here are some of the things you should bring to get the most out of your personal injury consultation.


Medical Records and Bills
These are crucial documents in any personal injury case evaluation. If you were injured in the accident, you likely sought help in a medical facility. Upon your request, your doctor or medical provider should give you detailed records showing what procedures were performed, the cost of care, and contact information for the nurses and doctors who provided the treatment. Your medical records will help establish liability and enable your attorney to assess the strength of your potential lawsuit.


Bring any relevant evidence you may have about the accident to help your lawyer build a strong case. Provide any information you may have such as police reports, photographs from the scene of your injury, names of potential witnesses, or any other evidence of how the accident happened. You will be asked to give a recount of the circumstances that led to the injury, so taking notes as soon as possible, following the accident, may be of great help.


Pay Stubs
If the accident caused considerable damage that will make you miss work or permanently affect your performance potential, pay stubs or other indications of job salary can help your attorney establish those potential damages.


Insurance Policy Information
Your attorney can help you review and determine what is and isn’t covered by your insurance policy. .


Be sure to bring any communication received from the other party or insurance company to your personal injury consultation. With this information, your attorney can get a clearer picture of the disputed areas and prepare accordingly.


Finally, prepare a list of questions to take with you to your consultation. Your attorney will want to answer all of your questions.

Bringing all of these items will help your Tampa personal injury lawyer better prepare for the case with a smooth start.
