If you have been injured in an accident and have scheduled your first meeting with a personal injury attorney, you may be unsure of what information you should bring with you. In order for us to understand the full extent of the accident and your injuries, as well as provide you with a thorough case evaluation, you should bring as much information as you can. The following is a list of what that information should include.

Documents About the Accident

Make sure to bring all documentation you have of the accident, such as police reports, accident reports, and any letters or emails you have gotten from insurance companies. It is important to give your attorney the contact information of the other party or parties, as well as any witnesses to the accident. You should also bring your auto insurance policy documents with you. These documents can help your attorney understand your coverage and limitations.

All Records of Communication

It is highly recommended that you should not speak to the other party or their insurance company before speaking to an attorney. However, if you have had any communication with any insurance companies or the other party, you should bring this information to give to your attorney.

Medical Records and Expenses

In order for your attorney to gain a comprehensive understanding of the extent of your injuries and the medical treatment you have received so far, it is important to provide them with all of your medical and billing records. These records should include doctor’s notes, diagnostic test results, health insurance statements, and any other important information.

Proof of Lost Wages

If you were or still are unable to work due to your injuries, your attorney can help you pursue financial compensation for that loss of income. Make sure to bring pay stubs, tax returns, or a letter from your employer that confirms how much time you have missed, how much in wages you have lost, and what, if any, benefits you have used during this time – i.e., sick time or vacation time.

 Questions and Concerns

You likely have many questions and concerns about your case. It can be hard to remember all of these questions during your appointment. This is why it is a good idea to write down a list of questions that you have about your case and bring it with you to your consultation.
