If you are involved in an automobile or motorcycle accident or have experienced other personal injuries, it is important to contact an experienced and trusted personal injury law attorney immediately. The quicker you reach out, the faster we can get the process started to get you the compensation you have a right to under Oregon law. While contacting a lawyer is the most important step, a few things may help in the consultation process.
Having photographs can help the consultation process. Photographs of the accident, the accident scene, and any property damage to either vehicle are helpful. Often, people forget to take pictures of the injuries they sustained.
Take out your phone and snap a picture of every cut, bump, and bruise. This helps an attorney assess your situation and may help your case later along the way.
If you have the police report, this can be helpful in the consultation process. This should be readily available to you. However, if you don’t have the report, you should still reach out to an attorney. They can help you obtain it or even get it themselves.
Writing Down Your Experience
Writing down some notes on what you remember about the accident may help you describe to a lawyer all the circumstances of your accident. This can help the consultation because it can help you cover everything you’ve experienced and ensure you won’t forget to leave anything out.
Copy of Medical Bill
A copy of your medical bills can help an attorney build a case to advocate for the compensation you deserve. This can also demonstrate the extent of the injuries you have sustained.
These are helpful items during a consultation with a personal injury attorney, but they are not mandatory for the initial consultation. The most important step is reaching out. If you’ve been in an accident, contact Shlesinger and deVilleneuve Attorneys for your free, no-pressure consultation today.
