If you have recently been injured in an accident due to another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you now require financial compensation to heal. As personal injury attorneys, it is our job to help the wrongly injured recover that compensation. However, to do so as efficiently as possible, you should try and bring certain documents to your initial consultation with our firm. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more.
What should I bring to my initial consultation?
The purpose of an initial consultation is so that our attorneys can familiarize ourselves with your case and determine whether you have a viable personal injury claim. For this very reason, it is critical that you bring various documents and information regarding your injury and the circumstances surrounding it to your consultation. Some of the most valuable information you should bring to your consultation with our firm is as follows:
- A written statement regarding the sequence of events that lead up to, and caused, your accident.
- Witness contact information and statements that corroborate your claim.
- Photographs of the accident or the circumstances surrounding the accident. For example, if you were injured in an auto accident, you should bring pictures of any damage to your car, the other motorist’s car, and any property that was damaged in the accident. If you were injured in a slip and fall, you should bring pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident.
- Insurance information.
- Any medical documentation/bills regarding your injury.
- Any correspondence you have had with the negligent party or his/her insurance company. This can include texts, emails, phone calls, and more.
How long will I have to schedule an initial consultation with an attorney in Texas?
As you know, there is a statute of limitations in place for personal injury claims in Texas. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims is, generally, two years, which means that in most cases, you will have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the liable party. Failing to do so will most likely result in your being permanently time-barred from suing. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
