Things to Discuss with Your Personal Injury Attorney

In the wake of an accident, you will be given the task of collecting, sorting, and evaluating a vast amount of information. Requesting medical records and coordinating with insurance companies, all while trying to get medical care, can quickly become overwhelming. A personal injury attorney can help you navigate each phase of the claims process. Below, we have collected a list of topics that you should consider discussing with your attorney.

Things to discuss with your attorney include:

  1. How the accident occurred: While you may want to avoid discussing the details of your case with outside parties, do not be shy about telling your attorney exactly what happened. When did an accident take place? Where were you coming from? Do you believe that you may have shared any fault? It is important that your attorney has a comprehensive understanding of the facts of your accident.

  2. Medical history and past injuries: A monetary award can be greatly influenced by your ability to prove the injuries you sustained as a result of an accident.The opposing side may attempt to reduce the value of your claim by arguing that you were not truly hurt in the accident or that some of your injuries already existed. By thoroughly reviewing your medical history with your attorney, you can better prepare for any potential pitfalls ahead.

  3. Insurance adjusters: After your accident, you will likely be contacted by an insurance adjuster. While they may seem friendly and eager to help, they are employees of the insurance company and may not have your best interest in mind. You do not have to talk to them without first consulting with an attorney.

  4. Recent legal developments: Are there any factors which may affect how you receive an award, such as a divorce or bankruptcy? Do not be afraid to ask questions of your lawyer and do not let the complexity of the legal process intimidate or overwhelm you. If you are unsure if a particular detail regarding your current situation is important, ask your attorney.
