Three Things you need before you call a Personal Injury Attorney

Do you feel that you have a personal injury case? Are you ready to hire an attorney? If you answered yes to both of these questions you are in a unique position. After all, most people go their entire life without ever hiring a personal injury attorney – and that is a good thing.

If you are thinking about calling a lawyer to discuss your case, below are three details you should have in front of you before getting on the phone:

1. An outline of the accident. It goes without saying that you will be asked to provide information on the accident, as well as the injuries that you incurred. Don’t leave out any details, as all of them will help the attorney make a decision on whether they can help.

2. Insurance information. Have you spoken with your insurance company? How about the company representing the other party? If so, what was said? The answers to these questions are very important to personal injury attorneys.

3. Records. This includes everything from police reports to witness statements to medical bills. You may not need to give out this information right away, but the details can come in handy as your conversation progresses.

In short, make sure you are prepared to speak with a personal injury attorney before you make the call. This will give you the best chance of connecting with a lawyer who can take your case and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
