Whenever you speak with a Fairfax personal injury lawyer, you’ll need to bring the same general information for your discussion. At the very least, you should bring the following with you to an accident case consultation:
- police reports;
- medical bills;
- medical records related to your injuries;
- witness statements and contact information;
- pay stubs prior to your accident; and
- correspondence from the insurance companies.
If you attempted to settle your case on your own and later decided you need a lawyer, you will need to provide some additional details.
Contacting a lawyer while you have already made progress in the accident case process means you will need to bring them documentation showing what you have already attempted. The lawyer should review how far you’ve come and offer you his or her opinion regarding whether you need attorney services to continue the case.
Don’t feel that talking to a personal injury attorney means you’ve thrown in the towel on settling your accident case on your own. Sometimes you may just need reassurance or guidance that things are being done properly. That’s why I offer coaching sessions for accident victims that really don’t need a lawyer throughout the entire settlement process.
