What You Should Have Before You Talk to Your Lawyer About a Personal Injury Case

What You Should Have Before You Talk to Your Lawyer About a Personal Injury Case
Posted By: Lizzie Weakley on June 17, 2021

A personal injury is an injury caused to a person due to carelessness, wrongful conduct, and negligence of another party or person. According to NCHS, about 39.5 million people suffer unintentional injuries. However, many of the people suffering the injuries do know how to seek compensation. Personal injuries are covered under tort law. They are based on liabilities and damages. If the two can be proven, then compensation is awarded.
The lawsuits dealing with personal injury cover car accidents, falls, product liability, defamation, medical malpractice, ****, and animal bites. A personal injury attorney can cover the injuries mentioned above. However, it is prudent to prepare well before meeting the attorney.

Preparing to Meet a Personal Injury Attorney


Personal injury attorneys handle many cases, and therefore they have vast experience to solve your case. To handle your case properly, they need some pieces of information from you. Hence before proceeding to seek their intervention, gather all the required materials and information. Remember that you have to pursue the lawsuit within one year of the personal injury.

Pictures


Pictures showing the scene where the injury occurred are paramount. In case of a motor vehicle accident, carry all the photographs capturing the accident scene. The photos will serve as evidence when pursuing compensation.

Police Report


In many cases, the police always appear at the scene of the accident. They usually gather all relevant information, including time, location, property, or people involved in the accident. The police report will validate your claims.

Bill Estimates


In case of a vehicle accident, a reputable repair garage can assist you. It will calculate the estimated cost for repairing your vehicle. Bill estimates give an idea of compensation. Making compensation estimates requires experienced attorneys such as those from the Cardone Law Firm.

Medical Records


Medical records are personal documents that no one wishes to show anybody. However, in lawsuits for personal injury, it is a necessity. If you sustained an injury and have been receiving treatment, bring the consultation receipts. Additionally, carry all the prescriptions given by the doctor. The medical records will assist the attorney in quantifying your pain and estimating the severity of your sustained injuries. Besides, medical records are essential in case of a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Work and Insurance Information


Bring all the documents showing that you have been missing work because of the injury. In addition, carry the documents showing the coverage of your insurance and the policy information.

A Friend or Family Member


You may ask a friend to accompany you to the attorney’s office if you are prone to be nervous. However, the person may not be allowed to participate since the conversation with the attorney is confidential.

It is possible to receive compensation following a personal injury. All you need is to meet an experienced attorney. Before meeting the attorney, prepare all the documents required for evidence and compensation purposes. The earlier you do it, the better.
