What documents will my attorney need from me in preparing my personal injury suit?

When an individual suffers a personal injury, this is often an incredibly life-changing, traumatic experience for a client. A personal injury attorney will need certain information from the client in order to prepare for the suit and properly pursue damages for the client’s physical, financial, and emotional injuries.

As a personal injury victim, it is important to understand that some private information regarding your personal life will likely need to be disclosed to your attorney. Information such as your background, current employment status, circumstances of the accident, witnesses to the accident, property damage, and medical records are all important pieces to a personal injury lawsuit (See Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 90 § 34(m)). Also, it will be necessary to share any health insurance or car insurance information and cards, as this will be important to show evidence of coverage, should the suit lead to litigation.

Specifically, if you are a victim in an automobile accident, an accident report to the Registry of Motor Vehicle provides detailed information regarding the accident, injuries sustained in the accident, and further information about both parties. Any party who sustained physical injuries from an accident of any kind should keep a daily journal to track the present condition of the injuries sustained. Such a journal also allows an attorney to bring evidence into the lawsuit of the severity of the injury sustained, and how it is affecting a client’s daily life.

Additionally, a client should bring forth documents relating to financial expenses from an accident. Medical bills, insurance claims, estimates of vehicle damages, and additional non-medical expenses should be brought to the attention of the attorney. These documents will allow an attorney to determine the proper itemized statement of damages the client is relying on in the case.
