What To Bring to a Free Consultation about Your Personal Injury Claim
If you are thinking about getting a free consultation with an attorney about a personal injury claim, you may have questions about what information the attorney will need you to bring in order to better understand your case. The following will give you more information about the basic documents and information the attorney will need.
Documents You Should Bring To The Free Consultation
You should bring a copy of the police report if you were injured in a car wreck or a copy of the incident report if you were injured in a slip and fall. These reports contain information about how your injury occurred and will often provide a list of witnesses. Having this information early in the case helps us determine who we need to contact and what aspects of your claim require further investigation.
If it is a car wreck case, you should also bring us a copy of your auto insurance card. This will provide us with the information we need to notify your insurance company to make sure that you don’t miss out on valuable coverage you might be entitled to receive. For more information on why this is necessary please see our blog series on uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.
If you have health insurance you should bring a copy of your health insurance card. Likewise, if you receive Medicare or Medicaid benefits, you should bring a copy of your card with you to our initial meeting. Please take a look our blogs about paying medical bills after an injury to learn more about why this is important.
Finally, if you have any other documents related to the incident such as photographs of the vehicles, medical records or bills related to the treatment for your injuries or any other documents related to the wreck, bring them with you to the initial meeting. Having all this information at the initial meeting allows us to hit the ground running on your injury claim.
