Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable Washington D.C. personal injury attorneys to learn more about how to prepare for your initial consultation with our firm.

What should I bring to an initial consultation with your firm?

When it comes time to attend your initial consultation with our firm, you should ensure that you bring various forms of evidence documenting the accident so we can begin building your case and determining whether you have a valid personal injury claim. Some of the most important types of documentation/evidence you should bring are as follows:

  • If you were injured in an auto accident, you should bring pictures of any damage to your vehicle, the other motorist’s vehicle, and any property that was involved in the accident. If you were injured in a slip and fall due to a property owner’s negligence, you should bring pictures of the unsafe property conditions that caused your accident.
  • You should bring medical documentation detailing the origin and extent of your injuries, as well as medical bills associated with your injuries.
  • Bring your insurance information.
  • Bring any documentation regarding any correspondence that you may have had with the negligent party and his or her insurance company.
  • Any witness contact information, including their name, phone number, and email address.

How long do I have to schedule an initial consultation with a personal injury attorney?

If you are injured in an accident in Washington D.C., you must take legal action against the liable party within the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Washington D.C. is, generally, three years, which means that under most circumstances, you will have three years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party for your injuries. If you wait any longer than three years, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing.
