What should I bring to an initial consultation with a personal injury firm?
Attending your initial consultation requires you to prepare various forms of evidence that documents the accident you were in. This will assist your attorney in building your case and determining if you have a valid personal injury claim. The most important types of documentation and evidence you should prepare for this consultation are as follows:
- You should bring with you to your consultation with a personal injury firm medical documentation detailing the origin and extent of your injuries, as well as medical bills associated with your injuries.
- Insurance information
- Documentation regarding any correspondence that you may have had with the negligent party and his or her insurance company
- Witness contact information, including their name, phone number, and email address
- After an auto accident, you should prepare for your consultation by collecting pictures of any damage to your vehicle, photos of the property that was involved in the accident, and photos of the other motorist’s vehicle.
- If you were injured in a slip and fall due to a property owner’s negligence, you should bring pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident.
How long do I have to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Connecticut is generally two years. This means that you will have two years to file your personal injury claim with the assistance of your experienced personal injury attorney. If you wait longer than three years to take legal action, you may risk being permanently time-barred from suing. The sooner you bring attention to your claim, the better. To begin this process and to get started today, give our skilled personal injury attorney a call to schedule your initial consultation.
