So what information is the most important information after you’ve been involved in an accident?
What we ask clients to do is get us all their auto insurance information as quickly as they can. Meaning information regarding their auto insurance policies. And what we want to look at is whether or not clients have uninsured underinsured motorist coverage, medical payments coverage, rental coverage. We want to know what coverages our clients have that we can actually use to help them in a case. We also want all your information about your health insurance. Copies of your health insurance cards, all of those things. If you’re unable to work for a period of time we want copies of your pay stubs, copies of your tax returns if you have them. We’ll tell you exactly what we need and all we ask our clients to do is get it to us as quickly as they can and as completely as they can. So if you’ve been injured in an accident, quite honestly, and you call us, we’re going to ask you to bring as much of that information to your initial appointment as possible.
If you have a copy of the police report that you were given by the police officer we want you to bring that. If you were given some sort of ticket for the accident, let’s say for not having insurance or not having a valid driver’s license, we want you to bring that with you. That doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim it just means we want you to bring that information with you. The more information we have the better, and that’s what we ask for our clients to provide.
So if you’ve been injured in an accident, give us a call. But understand we’re going to ask you for all that information and that will help us find the best resolution.
