What Should You Bring to Your Meeting with Your Attorney?
Your first meeting with your attorney, the consultation about your case, is an important one. It is an opportunity for you to officially meet your attorney, to get to know each other, and to go over the facts about your case. This consultation is also your chance to ask any questions you have about the personal injury process, your case, and the firm you will be working with.
Important Items to Bring to Your Consultation
Here are some things you should bring to your initial meeting with your personal injury attorney:
- Police report of the accident (make sure you get the name and precinct of the police officer at the scene, so your attorney can request the report if you do not have a copy).
- Any documentation you have of your medical diagnosis and treatment.
- Photos or videos relevant to the case. These could be of the accident, the vehicles involved or your injuries.
- Any bills or expenses related to the injuries you suffered.
- Your auto insurance policy.
- Information about the other party, including their name and address, auto insurance information, and license plate number.
- Contact information of any witnesses to the accident.
- A notebook to write down any notes from your initial meeting and any instructions your attorney gives you.
