Things Your Personal Injury Attorney Should Know

Through our attorney blog, Dickman Law Firm hopes to educate our future clients to help your case go as smoothly and successfully as possible. There are things you must tell your personal injury attorney to allow for the best representation.

Imperative things your personal injury attorney should know include:

  1. 1.     Your medical history – you must disclose your full medical history to your attorney. Include all pre-existing conditions and any problem that required medical treatment. Failure to disclose this information could be the reason you lose your claim.
  2. 2.     Your criminal record – if you have a criminal record, your personal injury attorney must know the details of your past. Your attorney needs to be prepared to defend your past record no matter how insignificant in may seem to your case. Do not withhold any information.
  3. 3.     If you have financial problems – if you are currently facing financial hardships, the defense may claim you are only seeking financial gain if your case goes to trial. A personal injury attorney needs this information to create a substantial case to discard this type of claim.
  4. 4.     If you have filed past lawsuits – in court, the defense may attempt to prove you have a past record of suing on a whim if you have filed previous claims. Inform your personal injury attorney to allow proper preparation for this defense.

The most important thing for you to remember is the need to disclose all information to your personal injury attorney. Your case will suffer if you fail to talk openly and honestly. Dickman Law Offices has strategies and techniques to handle any perceived negative information to a help your claim.
