When you are injured in an accident, you may wonder what your legal options are. If the accident occurred due to another person’s negligence and you became seriously injured, you may be able to bring a personal injury lawsuit. Of course, in order to start such a process, you will have to schedule a consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney. At your first consultation, there are a few things you should be sure to bring with you.
Contact Information: It is important that your attorney has the contact information of everyone who has some sort of involvement in your accident and your treatment. Bring the contact information of your doctors, your physical therapists for rehabilitation, the insurance company, and any witnesses that saw the accident occur.
Documentation: Essentially, the backbone of any personal injury case is fulfilling the burden of proof. In order to prove that you were injured by another person’s negligence and that the injuries were serious, you will need documentation. Some of the documents that should be brought to your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney include:
- Photographs from the scene of the accident
- Photographs of your injuries
- Medical records from your doctors detailing your injuries, treatment, and prognosis
- All medical bills, regardless of whether they have been paid yet
- A detailed list of any other financial expenses that you would not have had if it weren’t for the accident
