When someone is injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they will often seek financial compensation to help them heal. The first step of the personal injury claims process is scheduling an initial consultation. That being said, you should prepare for your initial consultation so we can work to represent you as quickly and effectively as possible. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Maryland personal injury attorneys to learn more about how to prepare for your initial consultation with our firm. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I bring to an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?
After sustaining an injury, it is critical that you gather and bring various forms of documentation and evidence to your initial consultation with our firm. This is so we can better assess your situation and begin building your case immediately. Some of the most important information you should bring to your consultation is as follows:
- If you were injured in an auto accident, bring pictures of any damage to vehicles and property relating to the accident. If you were injured in a slip and fall, bring pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident.
- Bring medical documentation/bills pertaining to your injury.
- Bring witness statements and contact information, such as their names, emails, and phone numbers.
- Bring a copy of the police report that was filed at the scene of the accident.
- Bring any written or recorded correspondence you have had with the other party or their insurance company, such as texts, phone calls, or otherwise.
How long will I have to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney in Maryland?
If you are injured in an accident in Maryland, you will have to schedule your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney sooner, rather than later. This is because there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time individuals can wait to take legal action against a negligent party after an accident. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is, generally, three years, which means that, in most cases, you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call to schedule your initial consultation.
