Were you recently injured in an accident because of someone else’s negligence? If so, you’re most likely considering reaching out to an attorney who can fight for your compensation. As you may know, the first part of any personal injury case is attending an initial consultation. Please continue reading and contact our seasoned Jacksonville personal injury attorneys to learn more about the importance of preparing for an initial consultation with your personal injury attorney and how our firm can help you recover the compensation you need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:

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

If you can, you should do everything in your power to bring various forms of documentation/evidence to your initial consultation with your personal injury lawyer. After all, the purpose of this consultation is so your personal injury lawyer can familiarize him or herself with the circumstances of your case and injuries. If you can, try to bring the following to your initial consultation:

  • Pictures or videos of your accident/the cause of your accident
  • Any correspondence you may have had with the other party or their insurance company
  • Witness testimony detailing how your accident happened and how you were injured
  • A copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident
  • Medical documents regarding the injuries you sustained, medical bills, and information detailing how long you’ll be out of work
  • Your insurance information

We understand that this is a lot, however, the more you can bring us, the stronger your personal injury claim will be. Of course, if you do not have all of this documentation, simply bringing what you do have can still help your case exponentially.

How long after an injury do I have to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer in Florida?

When someone is injured in an accident in Florida, they are required to bring their personal injury claim within a certain period of time, known as the statute of limitations. Typically, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, however, depending on where and why you were injured, the statute of limitations may be far less. This is why once your injuries are treated, you should reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as you can.
