If you have used defective drugs and are considering seeking legal advice, you should make sure to keep accurate and detailed documentation of your experiences. These documents should include your medical records.
Preparing records in advance to share with a lawyer can save time and reduce potentially costly legal expenses.
Documents to share
A wide variety of documents can serve as legal resources for personal injury attorneys, such as:1
- Articles in newspapers
- Health insurance documentation
- Ambulance reports
- Witnesses’ statements
- Audio or video recordings
- Journal entries
- Social media posts
- Hospital documentation
You should maintain a file of all these documents. Create a list of the documents that are in the file. Once you decide to pursue a lawsuit, you can share the list with your attorney and ask him or her which documents will be useful.
