When you’ve been seriously injured in an accident caused by negligence, you’re probably worried more about your recovery than anything else. However, part of the purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to ensure your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering are all compensated following an accident that didn’t need to happen.
Hiring an attorney is part of the process when you’re looking for justice and compensation from the responsible party. However, your lawyer can’t do his or her job appropriately without some relevant information.
First, you should inform your attorney about any past accidents or injuries you sustained. This information is necessary because the opposition’s attorney will likely try and blame your current injury on a previous physical weakness. It’s essential your attorney knows they will have to dispute this possible argument.
Second, inform your lawyer about other legal situations in which you may be involved. For example, bankruptcy and divorce proceedings might both influence your settlement. A well-informed attorney can work within the parameters of your other situations to ensure you get as much compensation as possible after your case is closed.
Last, inform your lawyer about any criminal history. While felonies and misdemeanors might have nothing to do with your injury, they might be brought up during the trial because insurance company attorneys will do a background check. It’s crucial your lawyer has all the information needed to prepare for that potential tactic.
