Dealing with the legal aftermath of a personal injury is never easy, but with the help of a qualified lawyer, you can seek full and fair compensation for your injuries, missed wages, hospitalization, medical expenses, and more.

In order to maximize your compensation, you will need to provide some information and documentation for your attorney. This includes:

  • Any documents related to your case, such as medical reports and police reports
  • Pictures of the accident scene (if you have them) and other visible damages
  • Recorded medical expenses and any time you missed work because of the injury
  • Possible future medical expenses (if you have discussed these with your doctor)
  • Facts and information related to your case, injury, damages, etc.
  • Questions for your attorney regarding your accident, rights, and legal options

Take Notes, Keep Your Own Records, and Ask Questions

During your consultation, be prepared to write down any important information and suggestions. Your attorney has the experience and knowledge to give you the upper hand in court; follow your lawyer’s instructions to avoid hindering your chances of making a full recovery.

Additionally, keep a continuous record of any expenses related to your case, documents you provide your lawyer, and costs associated to your case.
