What documents should I bring to my initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?

As expected, most personal injury claims involve numerous documents. The more proof you have to support your claim, and the more documentation you bring to demonstrate your injuries, the better off you and your case will be. That is why you should try and bring the following information to your initial consultation with your attorney if you are able to:

  • A copy of the police report that was filed at the scene of the accident.
  • Medical documentation concerning the cost and extent of your injuries.
  • Witness statements and contact information.
  • Your insurance information.
  • Any recorded or written communication you may have had with the other party’s insurance company.
  • If you were hurt on someone else’s property, take pictures of the dangerous condition that resulted in your accident.
  • If you were hurt in an auto accident, be sure to bring the other driver’s insurance information, in addition to photos and videos of any damage to your vehicle, the other motorist’s vehicle, and any other property that was damaged in the accident.

How long do I have to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney in Florida?

It is best to bring your claim to a firm as soon as possible in the state of Florida. That is because there is a statute of limitations in place in Florida that puts a deadline on when you can file your personal injury claim. Because the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is, typically, four years, you will likely have four years from the date of your accident to organize your initial consultation with our firm so we can start the claims process on your behalf. If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you would like to get started now, do not hesitate to reach out to Manuel & Thompson today. Our legal team is here to help.
