Virginia Personal Injury and Accident Law

Good preparation leads to success and starts with the information and documents given to your attorney. You want an attorney who is prepared and armed with the necessary information to promptly commence work on your case. Not only will the information provide details about the case, but it will help the attorney analyze whether you have a viable claim and what damages you may be able to recover, like medical bills or lost wages.

Here is a list of information and documents, which should be provided to your attorney at the initial consultation. Of course, if you do not have this information, Petty, Livingston, Dawson & Richards, PC has resources to help you.

  1. Accident Report and Accident Report Receipt (or copy of other driver’s contact and insurance information if no accident report exists)
