Which documents and information will I need in hand when I speak with a personal injury attorney?
Under most circumstances, the information you remember can often be enough for us to provide some guidance for your case. However, the more information you have in hand, the more effectively we can review the viability of your injury case, and help get the legal prorcess underway. The most helpful documents are:
- The Traffic Collision Report, which also may be referred to as a Police Accident Report. Either the entire report or just the first page, known as the “face sheet” can provide the key information we need.
- Your insurance coverage information: Insurance company name, the type of coverages purchased, and the amount of coverage purchased, if any. It will also be important to know if you have Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage, and Medical Payments coverage through your auto insurance.
- Medical records of the incident-related injuries and the diagnoses.
When you meet or speak with our personal injury lawyers, having as much documentation as possible can benefit your case though we can also help obtain essential documents for your case if you need our assistance. Once our personal injury team starts work on your case, they will manage all the additional documentation needed for your case.
