How-To Help Your Attorney Get a Fair Settlement

Developing a persuasive case requires your assistance. Your first job is to recover from your injury, but your other important duties are;

1. MAINTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY

 Do not discuss your case with anyone but family members. Never speak about your claim with potential witnesses, claims adjusters, or neighbours. Your statements can be misconstrued and used against you.

2. SECURE IMPORTANT RECORDS

Keep these items in a separate folder safe place:

  • Your attorneys correspondence and documents
  • Copies and a list of all medical and prescription bills
  • A record of lost wages or income
  • A list of all witnesses
  • All pill bottles
  • A list of all relevant photos and where they are stored
  • A copy of any pain diary you are keeping

3. TRACK LOST INCOME

Maintain a separate record of all time lost from work or any lost income, your attorney will compare your list to the lost wage statement obtained from your employer.

4. COPY MEDICAL BILLS

 Send copies of all your medical bills to your attorney no matter who pays them to your attorney.  Ditto for prescription medical receipts, keep your own list of these bills and receipts.

5. TAKE INJURY PICTURES

If you have visible medical injury, take pictures of them every week or so as they heal. These photos will be important and persuasive evidence

6. COMMUNICATE CHANGES

If you remember any additional witnesses, change your contact information, lose your job, change your marital status, or experience any other alterations in your life, relevant to your claim. Report these changes to your attorney’s team.
