What to Bring a Car Accident Attorney in Georgia
Regardless of the severity of an accident, the information you bring to your first consultation with a knowledgeable Georgia car accident attorney at Henry Spiegel Milling LLP makes a difference in how accurately your legal options can be assessed.
With the Right Information, Your Georgia Car Accident Attorneys Can Get Started on Your Case More Quickly
The details behind your accident can dramatically impact how our attorneys pursue compensation. Complex accidents often require the use of accident reconstructionists and other experts who do their best work when the evidence is fresh. This is why it is so important to come to our offices prepared with the following:
Information from the accident scene: Bring the insurance, license, and contact information you collected from all involved parties and contact information for any witnesses. Be sure to bring a copy of the police report as well.
Physical evidence: Photographs are extremely valuable in assessing and preparing your case. Use a cell phone to take pictures of the damage to all vehicles, skid marks, the condition of the accident site, and any injuries you or your loved ones suffered. You also need to bring damaged clothing or items damaged in the accident—or at least a list of the items you can supply if needed.
Medical evidence: Even if you continue to need medical care, bring all receipts and doctor reports collected to date. Include receipts for everything you have paid for so far—even bandages, prescription or over-the-counter pain medication, and medical equipment such as crutches.
- Your notes about the accident: Take lots of notes about what happened before, during, and after the accident. If you overheard the other driver’s statement after the accident, write down what was said. And if you spoke to your insurance company or anyone else, write down exactly what you reported and to whom you spoke. It is better to record too much information rather than not enough—let your attorney decide what is important.
The initial assessment of your case helps our Georgia car accident lawyers determine if you should file an insurance claim—or if your best chances of receiving full compensation should involve a negotiated settlement with opposing attorneys or a jury trial. Detailed preparation is the key factor in any legal option. The sooner we get the information and evidence needed to start building an effective case, the sooner we can take the action needed to pursue the compensation you deserve.
