As you know, there’s nothing worse than sustaining a serious injury due to another party’s negligence. Unfortunately, this is something that happens far more often than any of us would like to think. That being said, if you are someone who has been injured in an accident due to another party’s negligence, you are most likely now seeking financial compensation. To recover this compensation, you will have to schedule an initial consultation with our Arizona personal injury attorneys, and you should do your best to bring various documentation to that consultation. Please continue reading to learn more.
What should I bring to my initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?
After sustaining an injury, you should make it a point to bring various forms of documentation to your initial consultation with our firm, as this documentation can help us better understand your case and efficiently work to obtain the compensation you deserve and need to heal. Some of the information you should bring is as follows:
- Your insurance information
- The contact information of any witnesses of your accident, such as their names, phone numbers, and emails.
- A copy of the police report that was filed at the scene of the accident
- Any correspondence you may have had with the other party or their insurance company
- Medical documentation/bills regarding your injuries
- If you were injured in an auto accident, you should bring pictures of any damage to your vehicle, as well as any damage to the other motorist’s vehicle and any property involved in the accident. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you should bring any pictures of the unsafe conditions that caused your accident.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Arizona?
When someone is injured, they are legally obligated to take action against the negligent party within the state’s statute of limitations. Since the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Arizona is, generally, two years, you will, in most cases, have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible for your injuries. If you wait any longer than two years, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing. Our firm is ready to help you today–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
