What should I bring to my initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?

After an accident, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident and bring that information to your initial consultation with our firm so we can assess your situation and determine the best strategy moving forward. If possible, please bring the following information to your initial consultation with our firm:

  • Medical documentation concerning the extent of your injuries. Also, ensure you bring medical bills regarding the cost of your injuries. 
  • A copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident. 
  • Witness statements and/or witness contact information such as phone numbers, email addresses, or any other means by which we can reach them to corroborate your claim.
  • Your insurance information. 
  • Any written or recorded correspondence you may have had with the other party or their insurance company, including emails, texts, phone calls, or any other means of communication.
  • If you were injured in an auto accident, bring pictures of any damage to your vehicle, the other motorist’s vehicle, and any property involved in the accident. You should also have the other driver’s insurance information. 
  • If you were injured on another person’s property, you should bring pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident. 
  • If you were injured due to a defective product, you should bring pictures of the incident, and you should ensure that you do not throw the product away. Our firm can use the defective product itself as evidence to prove your claim. 
  • As you know, every case is different, which is why if you have any other information regarding your accident or the injuries you sustained as a result of that accident, bring it to your initial consultation with our firm.
