Meeting with your Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident or have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, it is important to meet with an attorney to discuss your rights and options. Before the initial meeting, gather documents and other information regarding the incident that caused your injury. Bring this information with you to give your attorney.

Here is a list of information we would like to review with you:

  • Information exchanged at the time of the accident, including names, contact information from the other party or witnesses or any correspondence with any of the parties after the accident
