What to Bring to Your Consultation

Taking that first step and scheduling a consultation with an attorney after you have been injured can be stressful. This is especially true if you have never had to hire an attorney to represent you. What do you need to do to prepare for that first meeting?

We always recommend leaving the legal work to our team, but there are some things that you can do to assist us. Namely, you can provide us with as much information as possible to ensure our initial meeting goes smoothly. Here are five things you will want to gather and bring to your consultation.

1. Your Questions

The initial consultation is the time to ask any questions that you have. You will want to get to know our team, and you will want to determine if we are a good fit for you and your family. Jot down any questions you would like to ask as you think of them, and bring your list with you.

2. A Timeline

Your memory of the accident will be less clear as the days pass. One of the most important aspects of your case will be fault. In order for your attorney to prove who was at fault, they will need an accurate timeline of the accident.

3. Evidence

Bring along any evidence you have in regards to your accident. If you took pictures, print them out and bring them with you. If you have a list of witnesses and their contact information, you will want to provide your attorney with that information. Don’t worry about what may or may not be admissible in court, we will help determine what is useful.

4. Medical Bills

The amount of damages you will be awarded will depend on the amount of your medical bills. Bring copies of any bills that you have incurred. If your doctor or medical team has determined that you will need ongoing treatment, let us know that as well.

5. Legal Documents

Bring any correspondence you have received from the other party. This includes legal notices and correspondence from the insurance company. These papers will give your attorney an idea of what has already been discussed.
