What should I bring to my initial consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney?
Immediately following your injuries, you must do your best to document the accident. Next, you should bring this information to your initial consultation with your personal injury attorney. Your attorney will be able to assess your situation to pursue your rightful compensation with this information. The following are some of the most useful pieces of information that you can bring to an initial consultation:
- Medical bills
- Any relevant medical documentation stating the date, time, and severity of your injuries
- A written statement regarding the chronological order of events
- Insurance information
- The other motorist’s insurance information
- A copy of the police report
- Photos of the unsafe property conditions that led to a slip and fall accident
- Photos of any damage to your vehicle and the other motorist’s vehicle after an auto accident
- Any written or recorded correspondence with the other party or their insurance company
How long can I wait to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney in Maryland?
It is important to take legal action as soon as possible following an accident. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is generally three years. This means that you will have three years from the date of your accident to bring attention to your claim. The sooner you can file your claim, the better. This is because failure to file your claim may result in you being time-barred from suing. To get started with this process as soon as possible, give our Prince George’s County personal injury attorneys a call today.
