Do You Have a Case?
After an accident, you must contact a personal injury lawyer immediately as there can be missed details of your case or time-sensitive evidence. When an accident occurs due to the negligence of another, financial compensation is available. Discuss the details of your case with an accomplished attorney to gather the evidence you need in court.
Paperwork and Documentation
Your lawyer will let you know what paperwork you need to bring to court. Typically, your personal injury documentation should include:
Medical Bills. Collect all of your medical bills associated with the accident. Remember to keep multiple copies of your bills as you may need to send them to a few establishments. Depending on the type of accident, your medical bills may be covered by your PIP auto insurance or health insurance.
Estimates. If your personal injury requires future medical treatment, you can present this evidence in court. In addition, compensation for future lost income and other general damages can also be claimed in court.
Receipts of Payments. Keep the receipts to all the purchases you’ve made toward your injuries. This can include prescribed medications, co-payments, and assistive devices such as a wheelchair.
Best Practices During Proceedings
Your behavior in and out of court can affect your case. Listed below are a few tips on courtroom etiquette.
- Arriving early
- Staying off social media
- Being honest with your lawyer
- Keeping organized paperwork
- Dressing professionally
- Speaking only when directed by the court
Always talk to your lawyer to learn exactly what information you need to present in court. In most cases, people can only speak about their firsthand experiences. All parties may be examined and cross-examined by lawyers. Testimony presented in court must be true and relevant to the case.
