We live in a dangerous world, and personal injuries occur every day. Whether an accident has happened or there is negligence involved, representation is crucial after an incident. Full disclosure is the best way to approach your case with your personal injury attorney, regardless of the accident or incident that caused your personal injury. Read below to learn about what documents and information you should give to your attorney to help them prepare the best possible case.
- Medical: Any and all documentation and records regarding your personal injury should be brought to your attorney’s office. Permission for your attorney to view these records can be given by you to better understand your case. This information does not include medical bills, but actual documentation of your injury and the physical, physiological, and emotional repercussions caused by it.
- Financial: Here is where expenses come in. Provide your personal injury attorney with all medical bills and information regarding financial burden, such as the money you have lost due to your inability to work or how your injury has affected your ability to work and generate income. Insurance information is also helpful.
- Photographic Evidence: If you were involved in an auto accident or otherwise have photos of the scene where your personal injury took place, then offer your attorney all you can to ensure that the strongest possible case can be built in your favor.
- Legal: If you have police reports or other legal records that offer more details surrounding the events of your personal injury, then your attorney can use these to further build your case as well.
No information is irrelevant—if you believe it can help, then take it to your personal injury attorney. He or she can best assist you in determining what will be useful to your case.
