What Information Your Accident Attorney Needs
Insurance Policy and Records
If you are an insured driver (as it is legally required to be), you should have a copy of your insurance policy, detailing coverage accessible and ready for your attorney. If you do not have a hard copy of your insurance policy, your attorney should be able to get one directly from your insurance company, given your approval.
Proof of Premium Payments
In addition to proof of coverage, it is essential to have proof of premium payment, so your attorney can verify that your insurance is current and active.
Information from Involved Driver(s)
When involved in an accident, it is typical to exchange information between the drivers involved. This information includes their name(s), contact info, and their insurance details.
Information from Police
When the police are called to the scene of an accident, and formal report is filed. If you can obtain a copy of this report, or any other information that the police provide, this could prove useful in your case. If you cannot get a copy of the police report, your attorney should be able to get one for you.
Tickets from Accident
If any tickets were issued at the scene of the accident, the details on such will be useful for your attorney.
Photographs of the scene and the cars involved can prove very useful in your accident case. Provide copies of all photographs that you took at the scene of the accident to your attorney.
If you were hospitalized or received medical treatment due to the car accident, keep a copy of all medical records and bills to give to your attorney. This may serve as proof of severity of the accident, and will aid in getting you your full compensation.
In addition to having all the right information readily available, you should also make sure you have the right accident attorney. Contact the experts at Eric Blank Injury Attorneys today.
