Please continue reading to learn more about how you can prepare for your initial consultation with our firm.
What should I bring to my initial consultation with a Texas personal injury attorney?
Once you schedule your initial consultation with our firm, you should begin gathering various forms of evidence that you can present upon arrival. This is so we can move the claims process along as expeditiously as possible. Some of the evidence you should bring to your initial consultation with our firm is as follows:
- If you were injured in an auto accident, bring pictures of any damage to your vehicle and the other motorist’s vehicle, as well as his or her insurance info. If injured on someone else’s property, bring pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident.
- Bring medical documentation regarding your injuries.
- The police report filed at the scene of the accident.
- Witness statements/contact information.
- Any written or recorded correspondence you may have had with the other party or his/her insurance company.
How long will I have after an accident to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?
When someone is injured in an accident, they generally seek compensation as quickly as possible. However, in certain cases, individuals will wait to see if their injuries heal on their own. While this is understandable, we cannot advise you to do so, for there is a statute of limitations in place that dictates the amount of time injured parties have to take legal action against liable parties in Texas. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, it means that in most cases, you will have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible and schedule your initial consultation with our firm. We are here to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
