What to Bring to a Consult with a Car Accident Lawyer

Meeting with a lawyer can be the first step in the journey towards financial recovery following a traffic crash. While you don’t have to do anything to prepare for this meeting, taking some time to gather some documents and/or information (to the extent possible) can be helpful to:

  • Getting specific answers about your case and best options for proceeding
  • Getting your case started ASAP.

To this end, here are some of the most important items to try to compile and bring with you when meeting with a car accident lawyer for an initial consultation:

  • A copy of the police report for the incident – These may not be available for weeks or longer following a crash.
  • Names, contact and/or insurance information for the other involved motorists or parties – If you weren’t able to gather this info following a crash, it should be documented in the police report for the collision.
  • Names and contact information for any accident witnesses – This information is also usually available in police reports if victims were not able to get it in the aftermath of the crash.
  • Doctors’ reports and/or test results – This information can be essential to establishing the damage and injuries caused by the wreck.
  • Pictures of the crash wreckage and/or vehicle repair estimates – This information can be key to establishing negligence, as well as the damage resulting from the crash.
  • Any correspondence from insurance companies.
