WHAT TO BRING TO A CONSULTATION WITH A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

Are you getting ready to see an attorney for the first time to discuss your injury? You may be uncertain what to expect during that initial consultation and unsure what you should bring. An initial consultation typically involves a conversation between you and your potential attorney, during which you discuss what happened to you, the known extent of your injuries, who you believe is responsible and the outcome you expect from your lawsuit. Besides the interview, you should bring whatever you can to establish that you have a case and to assist your attorney in building a formidable case. 

Bring evidence that establishes your case

If uncertain what would be useful to your attorney, look at everything you are considering bringing and ask yourself if each item answers one or more of the following questions:

  • Who is responsible for your injuries?
  • What happened from your perspective?
  • Where did the accident or incident occur?
  • Why did the occurrence happen?
  • How did the occurrence directly cause your injury?

Here is an example: if you were injured in an automobile accident because another driver was texting while driving, you should bring the following items and information (assuming you have them):

  • Name, address, contact and insurance information of the other driver
  • The police report showing what each person said happened and the investigating officer's findings
  • Digital images from your phone of skid marks, vehicle damage and other pictures of the accident scene
  • Medical reports describing your injuries, their causes and prognoses for long-term recovery
