If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident that resulted in physical injuries or property damage, you may qualify for legal compensation. For years now, our League City personal injury lawyers have represented victims like you in personal injury cases that have cumulatively yielded hundreds of millions of dollars as compensation. Fortunately, anyone involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence can recover damages, even if they were partly at fault for their own injuries.
At Lone Star Injury Attorneys, it’s our goal to see accident victims regain what was lost to be able to move on. We stop at nothing but success when fighting for your legal rights. Our legal fees do not cost anything upfront, as we work on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only receive attorney’s fees after we recover damages for you at the end of the case.
When working with our dedicated accident attorneys, there are certain things that you should bring with you for the most effective evaluation of your case. This helps us understand the best legal approach to your case to maximum legal compensation. A majority of them will be discussed with you when scheduling an initial consultation online or over the phone. But even before you make that call, it’s always a good idea to familiarize yourself with what to expect. Below we have detailed some of the things you may bring when meeting your attorney for the first time.
Hiring a personal injury attorney means that you may have a number of questions. After an accident, please write down all of your questions to help you remember them when consulting your lawyer. They may also be of significant assistance when deciding whether to file a personal injury case or not. We strive to ensure that our clients understand the legal claims process. Before leaving our offices, we will make sure that all of your questions are effectively answered.
Proving that you suffered harm in an accident cannot be done just by the word of mouth. Before filing a formal personal injury lawsuit, your attorney will need to prove to the insurance company that you have suffered harm. For example, if you suffered injuries in a car accident, your attorney will need to provide medical records proving that your injuries and that you sought treatment for these injuries. It’s helpful to have copies of all your medical records including lab results, X-rays, or any other proof. However, if you don’t have them on hand, your League City injury lawyer can request them directly from the medical provider.
If you were involved in an accident and had the opportunity to photograph the scene, you should provide these photographs to your personal injury attorney. Apart from your own testimony, your legal counsel will need to show to the insurance company any evidence of damage. Normally, photographic evidence is persuasive and difficult to disprove.
When an accident occurs, multiple parties can be present at the scene. In most cases, these parties include eyewitnesses to the incident, as well as the party at-fault. If you are physically and emotionally fit to collect this information, the better it will be for your case. Recording their names, addresses, insurance information, and any other important details can be very helpful to your claim. When discussing your case, your personal injury lawyer will take everything into account.
If the police visited the scene of your accident, they likely have compiled a final report. The police report is a very important document since it shows an objective account of the incident from government officials. It provides deeper insight into the accident, your injuries, fault, and information on the parties involved. If you have it on hand, be sure to bring a copy of the police report when meeting your accident attorney.
