There are plenty of reasons for visiting an attorney, but the main one is simple - it's the best way to ensure that your case is resolved as best as it possibly can be and that you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries. Plus, your attorney takes care of the hard work for you so you are able to focus on physically healing without worry about the stresses that can come from a seeking restitution on your own.
However, it's important that you have the right information on hand when you first visit your attorney and receive your initial consultation. They'll take care of the process of seeking compensation for you, but having the right information ready will ensure that they're able to help you fully.
What To Bring With You
There are several key things to make sure that you have on hand when you visit your attorney for the first time. Here are some of the most important things to bring with you.
• Accident Details - The more knowledge your attorney has, the more they can do to help you. Some things you'll want include the date of the accident, your recollection of it, information about the other driver, and more. Also, bring the police report if you have a copy of it since it can greatly help your attorney show who was at fault.
• Insurance Info - Your insurance info is a must for your attorney to have. This helps them know who they need to talk to concerning any settlements or money that you are owed. Additionally bring any letters or emails that you have of conversations or correspondence between the insurance company and you.
• Property Damage Info - If you have photos of your vehicle or estimates as to what it will cost to repair, bring that info as well so your attorney can use it to get you a fair settlement amount.
• Medical Info - Also be sure to bring all medical bills or associated costs with you. This helps make sure that your attorney is able to get you a settlement that covers all of your costs that you've incurred due to your accident.
• Questions - The process of getting compensation can be confusing, and you likely have questions. Being able to rest easy without stress is important for the recovery process, so be sure to bring a list of questions along with you that you want to ask your attorney.
