The Utah Personal Injury Lawyers Checklist

Jun 26, 2008
There are some things that you need to do and have before you go to any Utah personal injury lawyer. If you have these documents and facts squared away before you go your experience will be far better. It can seem like a daunting list at first but the information you gather will help you greatly. A personal injury lawyer will require a lot of information because they have never met you, have never heard your situation or story and the more information they have the stronger case they can build. It won't be like telling the story to a friend you will have to prove the things that happened, because your lawyer is going to have to prove in the courtroom.

One thing you must have is as many facts about your story as possible. For instance things like the name and address of the ambulance service, the emergency room and all the doctors who have examined you. It may seem like small insignificant details but they provide basic information and leads for you lawyer.

Another important thing to gather that you may not think of right off the bat is a list of people you have talked to about the accident. As detailed as this sounds it really is important, like we established earlier your lawyer more than likely doesn't know you at all and for sure knows nothing about the incident you were involved in. It is there job to gather a case that is viable and true and so they may have to look in every place possible to do that.

Now for documents. The above was just information you needed, there are actual legal documents that you will need to get a hold of. And if you grab them before you ever head to any or Utah's Personal Injury lawyers then you will be more equipped to answer and handle their questions.

Here is a pretty good list of what to take. A copy of the accident report, copies of written statements, your insurance policy of any kind, medical bills, any correspondence you have had with insurers and any receipts you have from repairs. These can provide influential information and will help your attorney decide if you could win your case or if it is just going to be a waste or money.

All in all getting a personal injury lawyer in Utah can seem like a scary and overwhelming task. In reality though once you have the right information at your finger tips and can be prepared with the right documents your encounters with your lawyer will be positive ones. Don't avoid a personal lawyer because you aren't sure how the system works, research, ask questions, gather the documents above and you'll find you can successfully hire a lawyer.
