Posted By The McClellan Law Firm || Sep 25, 2013
If you or someone you love has been involved in a serious accident, you probably have a lot of questions about your rights and legal options. Our firm can help you out. At The McClellan Law Firm, we are passionate about defending the rights of our clients, and offer free case evaluations to injury victims.
Your health is one of your most important concerns. After seeking medical attention for your injuries, speaking with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney is imperative. But simply consulting a legal professional may not be enough; you need to understand the best option for your unique circumstances.
What Should I Bring to My Legal Consultation?
To get the most out of your first legal consultation, bring the following items to your appointment with a personal injury lawyer:
- Medical information and records
- Receipts associated with your injury
- Communication with the liable party
- Police report linked to the accident
- Information about your insurance
- Diminished paystubs and similar pay-related documentation
If you claim an injury, you must be able to show it through your financial records. Without medical information and receipts, it may be impossible to seek the full compensation that you deserve. It’s important to keep track of the medical expenses associated with your injury in order to build a proper case.
Additionally, you should save any communication-related documentation with the liable party. This includes phone messages, emails, and texts. These can help you establish liability in court, if necessary. Bring all applicable documents to your meeting with an attorney from our firm, and we can help you understand what will help your case.
Injuries & Missed Wages
If your injury caused you to miss work, you have the right to seek compensation for your missed or diminished wages. That is why it is important that you keep track of any paystubs that demonstrate your decreased pay. These paystubs will help your lawyer determine the full financial loss associated with your accident so you can pursue the fair compensation that you deserve and need.
Furthermore, you could also be eligible for compensation for any loss of ability to earn wages. An expert witness may be helpful in your case. Our firm knows how to pursue this matter by calling on an expert to provide testimony as to the injuries you have incurred and how they will affect your future earning capacity.
