What steps will my lawyer take in handling my case?

After being involved in an accident and hiring a lawyer, your lawyer handles things from there. So that you are not left in the dark about the steps your lawyer is taking on your behalf, here is a breakdown of some of the steps your lawyer may take in working on your case:

After initial meetings with you regarding the accident and injury details, your lawyer will investigate your claim. This usually requires a review of some or all of the following:

  • Witness statements.
  • Police reports.
  • A possible visit to the scene of the incident.
  • A review of appropriate statutory law (laws enacted by your legislature).
  • A review of appropriate case law (laws made by judges who interpret statutory law).
  • A review of all medical reports.
  • A review of all medical bills.
  • The possible hiring of an investigator to investigate the details of the incident.

Your lawyer will also contact the insurance company for the person, persons or company who caused your injuries. After the initial investigation and contact with the insurance company, your lawyer will maintain contact with you to make sure of the following:

  • That you are following the advice of your physicians and other medical practitioners.
  • That you are doing your best to improve from your injury.
  • That you are providing your lawyer with copies of all medical bills and other expenses related to the incident.
  • That you are providing records of loss of income from your job.
  • That you are keeping track of potential witnesses in your case.
  • Medical records will be obtained through the use of authorization forms as discussed below. Your lawyer will review those medical reports as they come in from your doctor and will keep abreast of the applicable law relating to your case.
