What Information Will Your Personal Injury Lawyer Need From You?
Initially, our personal injury lawyers need you to provide us with as much information about the incident that led to your injuries as possible. We will discuss the answers to the following questions to determine the best legal course of action:
- How did the incident happen?
Where did it happen?
- Who was involved?
- Were there any witnesses?
Who did you speak with at the scene of the incident?
- What was said during the conversation?
If you have an Exchange of Information Form, an Incident Report, or any other documents relating to the incident, we would like to have copies. Similarly, we ask that you provide us with any photographs that you may have, including photographs of your car (if you were involved in a car crash), the accident scene, and photographs of your injuries, such as cuts, bruises, and scars. Finally, we need information regarding the type of injuries that you sustained, where you have sought treatment, information related to any lost wages, and information as to how the incident has impacted you physically and emotionally.
What To Do If the Insurance Company Asks You To Sign Something
Do not sign any document for the insurance company without consulting a lawyer first. The insurance company may ask you to sign a Medical Release or a Final Release of your claims in return for some payment.
Your medical records are protected under a federal law known as HIPAA and you may not have to provide your insurance company with them, depending on your accident. While the insurance company does have a right to see some records in order to evaluate your claim, the release of that information should be limited and controlled. The medical release created by the insurance company may allow the insurance company to speak directly to your doctors, to receive all of your records for an unlimited time, and to use those records for any purpose, even purposes not related to your claim.
If the insurance company asks you to sign a final release, you need to confirm with your lawyer that this is an action that makes sense at the time. Once you sign a final release, you cannot seek reimbursement for any additional treatment or other losses regardless of whether you made a mistake in signing too soon. Even a release given in exchange for a property damage settlement could release your claims for bodily injuries and lost wages.

What’s REALLY Happening with
Auto Accident Claims
CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 aired a three-part report that revealed the underhanded tactics that many insurance companies are using to save themselves billions of dollars by reducing claims paid to minor-impact crash victims. These tactics – dubbed the “Three Ds,” delay, deny and defend – are discussed in the reports by former insurance industry insiders. CNN’s investigative team’s research and interviews revealed that multiple major insurance providers have employed these tactics during the course of the past 10 years. The result: 80 percent to 90 percent of accident victims settling without a fight for the small sums the companies offer. Often, these sums are as small as $50 and $100 when the victims are facing thousands of dollars lost.
