How Can I Prepare for My Initial Personal Injury Consultation?

What should I bring to my initial consultation with a Maryland personal injury attorney?

It is important to collect as much evidence of your accident as possible immediately following your injuries. You will then bring this information to your initial consultation with your personal injury attorney who can assess your situation. The most useful information you can bring to your consultation are as follows:

  • Insurance information
  • The other party’s insurance information
  • Medical bills
  • A copy of the police report
  • Medical documentation that states the date, time, and severity of your injuries
  • If you were in a slip and fall accident: photos of the unsafe property conditions
  • If you were in an auto accident: photos of any damage to your vehicle and the other motorist’s vehicle
  • Photographs of your injuries if applicable
  • Witness statements
  • A written statement detailing the chronological order of events
  • Any written or recorded conversations you have had 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?

You must take legal action within the statute of limitations in Maryland. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Maryland is generally three years. This means that, from the date of your accident, you will have three years to bring attention to your claim. The sooner you can file, the better. This is because if you fail to file your claim within this timeframe, you must be permanently time-barred from taking legal action. To avoid this and to get started as soon as possible, give our firm a call today. We are here to help. Our legal team prides itself on our ability to fight for our client’s right to compensation.
