If you’ve been bitten by a dog in Anaheim and have already made an appointment to speak with an attorney about your injuries, you may be wondering what kinds of documents he or she will need to give your case a solid evaluation. To get prepared for your initial consultation, remember to gather and bring the following important items for your Anaheim dog bite attorney to review:
- The police report and other documentation. Your attorney will need to see a copy of the police report, and it can be extremely helpful to also provide any other documentation, such as any correspondence from the dog owner or insurance company.
- The name, contact information, and insurance information of the dog owner. This information is vital. Without it, it may be difficult or impossible to track down the dog’s owner and pursue compensation—although, we may be able to assist in finding this information for you.
- Photographs, video, written accounts, and other evidence. Bring the contact information for any witnesses, any photographs of your injuries, a written account of what happened to you, and any other relevant evidence related to your Orange County dog bite.
- Medical records and bills. You will need a record of your medical care, including a medical history, your records, the dates of appointments related to the bite, etc.
- Other documentation of your injuries and recovery process. This one is often overlooked, but it can also be very helpful to keep a record of how you’re feeling as you heal, your pain-rating each day, how your recovery is going, and other relevant information about the effect of your injury on your daily life.
