So you have decided talk to a lawyer about your car accident injuries – Here’s how to prepare
If you have been injured in a car accident, you probably have questions about what you should do next. A lawyer can help you make the right decisions including whether to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering. If you have made the decision to speak with a lawyer, here are some suggestions of things your lawyer will likely ask for.
A detailed description of everything that happened in the car accident
The facts and circumstances of your car wreck are extremely important for your lawyer to properly analyze your case. Your potential to receive compensation for your injuries will depend heavily on the fault of the other driver involved.
Medical bills and records
Medical bills and records tell your lawyer a lot about your car accident injuries. Your pain and suffering may not be fully captured in the amount of your medical bills. However, these documents are still important for your lawyer to review because they help your lawyer learn about your medical treatment. Medical records and bills also help your lawyer estimate the potential dollar value of your case.
A detailed description of your injuries and how they have affected your life
Describing the impact of your injuries on your daily life will help your lawyer understand the effect of the car wreck beyond just the dollar amount of your medical bills. Prepare yourself to fully describe how your life has changed following an accident. This will help your lawyer see the full picture of your damages.
Any documents you have related to your car wreck will help your lawyer begin investigating your claim. Accident reports, photos of vehicles, and repair estimates for the damaged vehicles are just a few of the kinds of things your lawyer will likely want to see. When it comes to information and documents, more is better.
