What information do I need to provide at my initial consultation?
When a person is injured in an accident, whether it be a car accident, a slip and fall, or any other accident that was caused by the negligence of another party, they may want to consider their legal options. There are many different factors that are taken into consideration in any personal injury lawsuit. In order for an injured person to pursue his or her legal options, they must first schedule a consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney. At this meeting, the injured party presents all of the information they have in regards to the accident and their injuries sustained in the accident.
Some of the information may be in the form of contacts, such as providing the contact information of the individual’s doctors, the insurance company, and of any witnesses to the accident. In addition, they will have to provide any other documentation about the accident. This can include the following:
- Photographs or video of the scene of the accident
- Photographs of the injuries sustained in the accident
- Medical records that detail his or her injuries, treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation, and prognosis for full recovery
- Any expenses related to the accident such as medical bills, lost wages, and more
