Blog

Injuries can occur during car accidents or even during work. No matter where the injury occurred, you may be eligible for legal help. Injuries can really take a toll on you and your family. In order for you to be protected it is often the best thing to look for legal help. An attorney is going to be able to represent you and your rights, and he or she could have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Here are a few things to be sure to tell your personal injury lawyer when you meet with them.

Personal Accident History

It is going to be very important for you to tell your lawyer if you have experienced any previous accidents. It will also be very important for your lawyer to know what type of injury that occurred during any previous accident. An insurance company may try to point at a previous accident as the cause of your current health issues. If you have already told your lawyer about the previous injuries, he or she will be able to dispute this claim.

Do not forget to also tell your lawyer about any accidents or injuries that you have suffered since your accident. An opposing lawyer may try to say that you are trying to claim money or compensation for accidents and injuries that are not related to the accident. Once again, if your lawyer knows your personal accident history, they will be able to dispute this claim.

Money History

Money and credit history is also going to be a very important discussion to bring up with your lawyer. If you have filed for bankruptcy, you may not be able to secure any of the compensation for yourself. There is a good possibility that it goes to all of your creditors. However, your personal injury lawyer may be able to work with the bankruptcy lawyer and work a deal where some of the money is set aside for you. 

‚ÄčLicensing 

If you have been injured, your job or career could be at stake. Make sure that your personal injury attorney knows what your career is and what type of licensing is involved with your career. The personal injury lawyer is going to make it a top priority to protect your job and your way of providing for you and your family. If they are not aware of any licensing that you have, they are not able to protect it.
