Preparing for Initial Consultation with a Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Enduring any kind of serious injury will take a toll on your mental, emotional, physical, and economic wellbeing. Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are especially overwhelming. Unlike bruises, cuts, fractures, and other kinds of accident injuries, SCIs may cause lasting damage.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center stated that most new SCIs have resulted in tetraplegia since 2010. Tetraplegia, often called quadriplegia, results from damage to the cervical area of the spinal cord and causes a degree of paralysis in all four limbs.
People with quadriplegia will need lifelong care. In reality, even the most self-sufficient people can expect to spend millions on equipment, medical rehabilitation, and home care over the course of their life.

1. Collect Every Evidence You Already Have
Firstly, collect evidence. An expert spinal cord injury attorney will be able to gather important evidence on your behalf. However, collecting any proof you already have will secure your case gets off to a powerful start. Evidence worth bringing to the consultation includes:
- Photos of the accident scene
- The names and contact information of witnesses
- Official police report or incident report
- Letters or email messages from the insurance company
- Also news articles about the incident
2. Document Everything Concerning Your Diagnosis & Treatment
Secondly, start documenting everything. The compensation amount you may be entitled to will vary on the severity of your injuries. It is vital to document your progress from day one. Additionally, collect any documents and receipts you have received concerning your diagnosis and treatment for the first consultation. For example, documents might include:
- Medical records
- Pharmacy receipts
- Health insurance bills
- Photos of injuries
- Records detailing the recovery process
- Statements from medical experts regarding your diagnosis
- Receipts from physical therapists, chiropractors, and other rehabilitation specialists
- Also, a list of medications you are taking
3. Compose a List of Questions
Finally, write down any questions you may have for your attorney. This will ensure you do not forget to address any issues or concerns during the consultation.
