If you are thinking about hiring a team of experienced Columbia car accident lawyers — such as the legal professionals at Harris & Graves, P.A. — then you are making a smart decision. To make the most out of this decision, however, you will need to provide your attorneys with as much information as possible.
Along with providing the police report, witness information and other pertinent details about the accident, you should also provide as much medical documentation as you can.
This is important for two main reasons. First of all, your lawyers will need to be able to prove the extent of your injuries; otherwise, your case might not go as far as you would like for it to. They also need to provide evidence of just how costly the accident has been, and being able to produce medical documentation can help with that.
Luckily, you can easily help with this part of the process. Just make sure that you bring along these things when meeting your lawyer to ensure that he or she is prepared and ready to fight for you:
- Ambulance Bills
- Doctor’s Bills
- Hospital Bills
- Doctor’s Notes
- Bills or Receipts for Prescription Medication
- Bills or Receipts for Over-the-Counter Pain Medication and/or Medical Supplies
- Pictures of Visible Bruises, Cuts, Scrapes, Burns or Other Injuries
Bringing in what you can when you talk to your lawyer can help your case. If you have any other questions about what you should bring in, or if you need other help with your case, you can always contact us at Harris & Graves, P.A.
