    Check Out Their Website

    The law firm you are visiting should have a website. Look at their website for additional information about the lawyers and the type of law they practice.

    • The law firm of Anthem Injury Lawyers has a large team of lawyers and staff ready to serve you. To find out more about a specific member of our team go to the Our Team page on our website.
    • You can also visit the Anthem Injury Lawyers website for helpful information. This includes our Personal Injury page and our Personal Injury FAQ page.

    Arrive Early

    Your time with a personal injury lawyer is valuable. You should plan to arrive early so that your meeting can start on time. This ensures that you can maximize the time you have scheduled to meet with the lawyer. If you are new to the office, review the address to plan the best route ahead of time. Use your phone or computer to check out trip time estimates.

    Prepare Your Contact Information

    A law firm will need your basic contact information such as who you are and how to best contact you. Be prepared to provide the following:

    • Name
    • Home address
    • Home phone number
    • Mobile phone number
    • Email address
    • Work address

    Plan to Provide Information About the Accident

    During your initial meeting, you should plan to provide basic information about the accident and treatment. Remember, it is okay if you do not have all the accident information. A lawyer can help you gather the necessary information. However, you should provide the following information if possible:

    • Details of the accident. This includes the date, address, and description of what occurred.
    • Photos or videos (or contact information of people who may have photos or videos) of the accident or injuries.
    • Names and contact information of other people involved in the accident. This may include their insurance information.
    • Names and contact information of first responders. This may include law enforcement officers, paramedics, EMT’s, and firefighters.
    • Names and contact information of witnesses.
    • If you were transported by ambulance, have the ambulance information.
    • Names and contact information of insurance companies. If you spoke with adjusters, provide their names and contact information as well.
    • If you were treated at a hospital, have treatment dates and identifying information for the hospital.
    • Names and contact information of any medical professionals who examined or treated you. This includes any treatment following the accident.
    • Your employment information including dates of any missed days of work following the accident.
    • A description of how the accident has impacted you? How the accident has impacted your family? Be specific.

    Gather Relevant Documents

    A lawyer may or may not ask to view relevant documents during your initial meeting. However, gathering relevant documents can help you better prepare for your meeting. What is relevant depends upon your situation. If possible, you should bring the following (or copies):

    • The police report
    • Any written or recorded statements related to the accident
    • Medical records
    • Receipts for treatment, medical equipment, and medication
    • Insurance company correspondence
    • Information from other involved parties (this includes the other driver(s))
    • Estimates and repair records
    • Financial information related to any wage loss (pay stubs or recent tax returns)

    Write Down Your List of Questions

    If this is your first meeting with a personal injury lawyer, you probably have a lot of questions. The best way to make sure all of your questions are answered is to write down your list of questions. Do this before meeting with the lawyer.

    Examples of questions you may have for a personal injury lawyer include the following:

    • What lawyer will be assigned to your case? The person you initially meet with may not be assigned to your case.
    • Does the lawyer have experience with your type of case?
    • Does the lawyer have trial experience? How many of their cases go to trial? What is their success rate?
    • What settlements has the lawyer obtained?
    • How and how often will the lawyer communicate with you about your case?
    • How does the lawyer expect to be paid?
    • What can you expect for a timeline?
    • What will the lawyer expect of you?
