Landing yourself in a motorcycle accident can be a harrowing experience. You may have even begun thinking about getting the help of a personal injury lawyer, or a motorcycle accident lawyer. If that is the case, then there are some documents that you need to furnish, so that your attorney can clearly understand your case and strategize a course of action to best compensate you.
Here is a list of important documents that you want to put forward:
Your Insurance Policy
If you have a car or motorcycle insurance cover, then you would want your attorney to get a copy of it. This is for them to see clearly the type of insurance recovery that may be entitled to you. Even if you don’t have a copy of it, it is ok. Your attorney could get in touch with the insurance company and get it for you, on your approval.
Evidence Of The Insurance Premium Payments
Your attorney will require proof that you have been regularly paying insurance premiums. You must periodically receive statements and bills from the insurance company that tells you that your premiums are due. If you are able to provide to your attorney a receipt of the payment, then it will be easier to prove that the policy is very much in effect and that you have paid up.
Information Put Forward By The Responding Police Officers
The police report is one of the key documents that is the official record of the accident taking place. The police accident report will often include diagrams as to where the various vehicles were, or the pedestrians were at the time of the accident. The report will also have information relating to the responding officer’s first impressions of the cause of the accident. All of these are crucial information to your claim, which your attorney can make use of to prove your part, and lay legal ramifications on those responsible.
Photographs And Statements
If you have pictures of the damage that had been caused, then that is great. Even if you weren’t able to capture pictures, then the insurance company agents would have. The insurance company will even ask for a statement from your end. If you are contacted, then you have the right to have a copy of the statement that was given by you. Both the photographs and the statement can be gathered from the insurance company by your lawyer if you haven’t got a copy yet.
