What to Bring When Meeting Your Illinois Personal Injury Lawyer

Contact Sam C. Mitchell & Associates Today

The initial meeting between an injured individual and an Illinois personal injury attorney is an extremely important one, as the lawyer will use this time to evaluate the case and its chances of winning compensation. However, this meeting can be a waste of time for everyone if the injured party arrives unprepared. If you have been hurt, it can also end up costing you money down the road, as your attorney will need more time to get up to speed on your case.

Meeting with Us

Your Illinois injury lawyer needs to know your basic contact information and a bit of your personal history. Your attorney also needs to know about any potential conflicts of interest inherent in your case. Be sure to know the names of all companies, individuals, and witnesses involved in your case. If this injury lawyer in Illinois represents anyone else involved in your case, he or she will probably not be able to represent you.

Also bring all documents relevant to your case when meeting with our firm, including the following:

  • Police or accident reports detailing your injury
  • Copies of all medical, hospital, doctor and therapy records and bills
  • Information about your insurance coverage
  • Medical reports detailing your diagnosis and prognosis
  • Information about potential future medical costs and work missed as a result of the injury
  • A list of the ways in which the injury has affected your life
  • A calendar listing all important dates
  • All insurance correspondence and documents related to the case

Questions to Ask

Be prepared to ask a personal injury attorney in Illinois the following questions:

  • Are they experienced with your types of injury?
  • How long have they practiced?
  • What are the options regarding your case, and which would the lawyer prefer?
  • How long will it take to bring the matter to a conclusion?
  • How would the lawyer charge for his or her services?
  • Would this lawyer handle the case personally, or pass it on to someone else in the firm?
