There are no specific documents that all injured riders must have with them the first time they meet with our Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys. The documents that you might have may depend on how long ago you were hurt and other factors specific to your case.
Generally, at the first meeting an Illinois motorcycle accident lawyer wants to know what happened to you. Our lawyers want to know what happened at the time of the accident, what you remember from the accident scene, and what has happened since. We may ask questions about your injuries and about your recovery, for example.
If you have documentation about your accident or your injuries then you should bring it with you to your meeting. Documentation may include—but is not limited to—doctors’ reports, police reports, and bills that you have incurred as a result of your accident injuries.
You should expect that the discussion will be about what happened, about your legal rights and about your potential recovery if an Illinois motorcycle accident case were to be filed. You may wish to have your spouse, parent, or another trusted relative or friend attend the meeting with you.
