Information to Provide to Your Personal Injury Lawyer Seattle WA

Posted Friday, January 8, 2016 by Chris Thayer

During the course of your representation, your personal injury lawyer Seattle WA will likely request various information. Some of the recommendations that your personal injury lawyer Seattle WA may make include:

Medical Trips List

Keep a list of medical trips that you take for treatment purposes. Include the date of the trip and whom you visited, such as a hospital, physical therapist, doctor, pharmacy or medical supply store. Include the reason for the trip, such as a check up, to pick up prescriptions or to get other supplies. A lawyer may use this list to assist with negotiations because it is a tangible representation of the treatment that you had to endure due to the accident. If the case goes to trial, the evidence may be used to demonstrate the troubles you have endured.

Medical Expenses

Another list that your personal injury lawyer may request that you maintain is a list of medical expenses. Include the type of expense that you incurred, such as a doctor’s bill, prescription expense, over-the-counter products like bandages and heating rubs and other medical expenses. This type of detail can help demonstrate to the other side the extent of your expenses and the organization of your case.

Other Information

A personal injury lawyer may request additional information depending on the particular circumstances of the case. For example, you may need to provide documentation related to your lost time off work. If you work a full-time job with steady pay, this may include providing check stubs that show pay. If you are self-employed, this may require more detailed records regarding payment, including client statements and tax returns. By providing your lawyer with all requested information, you can help substantiate damages.
