What To Do After an Accident Part II: Document EverythingThe Janssen Law Office, LLC
Preserving the record of your accident and treatment is imperative. This means keeping everything–police reports, medical reports, correspondence from both your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company. Even minute details that may seem unimportant at first might prove essential to your claim as your case progresses.
A compartmentalized file folder that allows you to separate your documents by category can be helpful in this regard. You should bring this folder with you when you meet with your attorney to discuss your case so he can scan your documents and provide him copies of new documents when you receive them.
Well-documented cases can be resolved far more quickly that cases requiring your attorney to search for information, meaning you’ll recover the money you need and deserve far faster.
