I was in a car accident. I know I need a lawyer, but what do I do next?

Often, having an experienced lawyer can make a big difference in how, when, and for how much you will recover for injuries after an accident. Preparing to meet with a lawyer can be intimidating. What do I need to do. Often, it helps to write down what you can remember; the time, the date, weather and road conditions, etc. Other things to think about:
- Bring a copy of the police report regarding the incident. If you do not have a copy, bring the accident exchange form from the other driver.
- Bring any pictures you have of the cars, and the scene of the accident.
- Bring the names and phone numbers of any potential witnesses.
- Bring the names, phone numbers and claim numbers for any insurance adjusters you have talked to.
- Bring any proof of your sustained injuries. This can include: Pictures of any immediate trauma (cuts, bruises, etc.); names of hospitals, doctors, and ER personnel that treated you; your medical bills; and your health insurance information.
