Typical documents your attorney may ask for

For as much as you do to make sure that you are safe while you are on the road, you certainly don’t expect to be in an accident. And why should you? After all, looking in your mirrors before making lane changes and turns is second nature to you; you don’t text or use your phone while behind the wheel, and most importantly, you don’t drive drunk.

Unfortunately, this does not mean that other drivers will exercise the level of caution that you will; because of this, accidents may happen. When they do, it is helpful to know what to provide for your attorney in order to ensure that your claim is successful. This post will identify a few. 

Insurance policy number – This may seem obvious, but it is surprising how many people do not carry their proof of insurance card with them, even though it is required by law. If you don’t have your policy number, it is easy to get it.

Medical records – If you went to the hospital after the accident, your attorney will need to have the records created to document your injuries. This may include any emergency room treatments or any medications that may have been prescribed.

 Accident reports – Law enforcement authorities who responded to the accident will have produced reports detailing what they saw and found. This information will be helpful in detailing who may have been at fault for the crash.

If you have questions about additional information a personal injury lawyer may need to evaluate or administer your claim, contact an attorney.
