I Was Injured In An Accident - What Documents Will My Lawyer Need to Review?

Thursday, April 21, 2011

As a general rule bring ANY and ALL documents that remotely relate or are connected to the accident. The following is a list of some of the essential documents that must be brought at the initial meeting with the lawyer:

  • A detailed resume.
  • If you were involved in a car accident, if and when you hear about a Court date for the Highway Traffic Act charges against the other driver, please advise us of the date, time, place and courtroom number.
  • Action photographs of you as well as photographs of you with family members before the accident.
  • Copies of any awards or certificates, which you received through the years for outstanding achievements, ex., Terry Fox walk-a-thons, photographs of trophies, etc.
  • Tax returns and financial statements going back as many years as possible.
  • Photo identification, including driver's license and birth certificate.
  • The names and addresses of all family doctors you have had going as far back as you can remember.
  • Your health card number.
  • A list of all unrelated accidents and/or medical problems, with a brief summary of each.
  • Name, address, phone number of your friends, relatives and co-workers, who will be willing to provide a statement about your pre-accident functional status, and the impact of the injuries in your personal life or in your employment/business.
  • If you were involved in a car accident, bring the police report, if you were involved in a slip and fall bring a copy the incident report.
