Preparing for Legal Consultation About a Car Accident

If you’ve been involved in a car accident, there’s a good chance you’re wondering what’s going to happen next.

At Ring Jimenez, we will work with you every step of the way so you know exactly what we’re doing to get you the settlement you deserve for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

The Consultation

When you first meet with a lawyer for a consultation following a serious car accident, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, you should bring any paperwork that you have which is related to the incident. For example, bring any medical paperwork that shows you were hospitalized because of the incident or any paperwork that you have from your employer stating that you had to take time off work due to your injuries. You can also bring other things to the consultation, such as the police report, vehicle damage reports, things sent to you by insurance companies, information from a physical rehabilitation center or primary care physician. All of this is going to help a car accident lawyer evaluate your case.

The initial consultation is one of the most important parts of dealing with your new lawyer. This is where you will get to know each other, exchange information, find out the lawyer’s history with similar cases, allow them to look over your paperwork, sign any medical release forms that they need, and much more.
