What Do I Bring to My Free Consultation With Springs Law Group?
Are you wondering what you should bring to your first free consultation with Springs Law Group? Perhaps you’re also wondering what you can expect. Today, we’ll address these questions and provide you with some helpful tips on how to make the most of your free consultation with our team of experienced attorneys.
First and foremost, it’s important to note that you can bring whatever you want to your consultation. Accidents can be stressful, and gathering all the necessary documents can be overwhelming.
So, if you can’t bring everything, don’t worry. As your Colorado Springs personal injury lawyers, we’d love to talk to you regardless of what you bring. However, there are a few things that you may already have in your possession that we would like to see.
The Importance of the Police Report
One of the most important documents to bring is the police report. If the report is finished, we can get it on our own. But if you have a copy, that’s very convenient.
The police report provides valuable information about your accident. For instance, if the police report states that the accident was not your fault, that makes determining liability much easier. On the other hand, if the report suggests that you were at fault or partially at fault, we know what to expect from the insurance company and what arguments they may use to discount your claim.
Additionally, the police report contains the insurance information of the at-fault driver, which we can use to contact their insurance company.
Medical Records and Discharge Paperwork
If you have been to the doctor, an urgent care facility, or a hospital, bring any discharge paperwork you have received. While this paperwork may not contain your entire medical history, it contains information about your diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
This information about your medical treatment can affect your personal injury settlement, help us determine what direction to take your case in and indicate what kind of future medical treatment you may need.
Accident Information Exchange Form
In Colorado, when the police arrive at an accident, they will provide the parties involved with an Accident Information Exchange Form. This form contains important information about the other driver’s insurance. If you have this form, bring it with you to your consultation.
Health Insurance Card or Number
Finally, if you have health insurance, be sure to bring your card or your insurance number. If you receive a settlement from the insurance provider, your health insurance company may be entitled to be paid back. To avoid overpaying on a lien, we like to be proactive and put them on notice from the very start. That way, we can work with them and make sure you’re not overpaying.
The Bottom Line
While there are a few documents we recommend bringing to your free consultation with Springs Law Group in Colorado Springs, don’t stress if you don’t have everything. We’re happy to see you, regardless.
However, if you do have the police report, medical records, Accident Information Exchange Form, or health insurance card/number, it can be very helpful to bring them. We want to help you in any way we can, so feel free to contact us and schedule your free consultation today.
