Two Important Things to Do Before Meeting With Your Lawyer

Posted Thursday, January 30, 2014 by Chris Thayer

When going to meet with your Seattle personal injury law firm, you will be asked to bring several items and documents relating to your accident. This is so that the Seattle personal injury law firm can quickly review your case and figure out how best to prepare a strategy. Here some things you should be compiling before your meeting with your Seattle injury law firm:alt text

A List of Medical Trips

Keep a written list of every doctor, hospital, therapy session or any other medical facility or service you go to after your accident. Write down the date, location and purpose of each visit. For example: “Dr. Williams for routine checkup,” or “Pharmacy for prescription pain medication.” Your Seattle personal injury law firm will want to see this so they can get a picture of your treatment and how much it is costing you. Your Seattle personal injury law firm might also show the list to the insurance company during settlement negotiations to prove that you are as injured as you say. To keep it simple, just include the items listed above. Your Seattle personal injury law firm will tell you that extraneous information is not needed.

A List of Medical Expenses

Also keep a written list of the medical expenses you are incurring, both billable and out-of-pocket. For example, “Dr. Williams’ bill, pain killers, bandages, heating pads.” You want to include anything that is a result of your injuries so that your Seattle injury law firm knows to include it in the report to the insurance company. Keeping an itemized list of each expense as you pay for it is more compelling than a single lump sum you record at the end of every week. For this reason, be as specific as possible for your Seattle personal injury law firm.

Bringing these items to your meeting with your Seattle injury law firm will ensure that they are able to quickly get up to speed on your case and start preparing a strategy for your claim.
