What should I bring to an initial consultation with a Texas personal injury attorney?
If you are injured in an accident, you will have to schedule an initial consultation with our firm so we can determine whether you have a valid personal injury claim and begin building your case. For this reason, it is generally best to bring various forms of documentation and proof of the accident. Some of the most important information that you should bring is as follows:
- Pictures of the accident. If you were in an auto accident, bring a picture of any damage to your car, as well as of the other motorist’s car. If you were injured in a slip and fall, bring pictures of the safety hazard that caused your accident.
- Medical documentation concerning your injuries.
- A copy of the police report filed at the scene of the accident.
- Witness statements/contact information corroborating your claim.
- Any correspondence you may have had with the negligent party or their insurance company.
How long will I have to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney in Texas?
If you are injured in an accident in Texas, as with any state, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in the state of Texas is, generally, two years, which means that under most circumstances, you will have to take legal action against the party within two years from the date of your accident. 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 to schedule your initial consultation.
