Meeting with a personal injury lawyer gives you a lot of insight into whether you have a case and what kind of settlement you might be able to expect. But many clients are often confused about what information and documents they should bring to such a consultation. Providing the right information to your attorney is vital to a successful case. Keeping this in mind, the staff at Carter Law Offices has prepared a list of exactly what you should bring to your first meeting with a personal injury lawyer.
What should I bring to my meeting with a personal injury lawyer?
For your initial consultation with a personal injury lawyer, you should bring any and all information related to the incident, as well as anything that may help prove your need for compensation or legal justice. This includes:
- Police reports
- Medical documentation (medical bills, medical history, hospital room number)
- List of dates when you had to miss work
- Written statements
- Insurance information
- Receipts for any care or related materials (including medication)
In addition, you’ll also need a list of names and contact information for all persons involved in the incident, plus witnesses, insurance adjusters you’ve spoken with, and doctors who treated or diagnosed you. If there’s any other information or documentation that may be helpful, don’t hesitate to bring it with you to the meeting.
Will all the information I provide remain confidential?
Yes, all the information you provide to your personal injury lawyer will remain confidential. Your information will remain private even after the case ends. Please don’t hold back any information, since you never know what will make a difference in your case. Every detail may help you get one step closer to getting the compensation you deserve.
