What should I bring with me to my first appointment?

At the Law Offices of Houston M. Smith, P.C. we offer a FREE initial consultation to injury victims. The goal of this initial meeting is to discuss your claim and your options and how we can help you.

In order to best evaluate your case, there are several items that we request you bring with you for our first appointment, including:

  • Photos of your injury (or injuries)
  • Photos of your property damage
  • Crash report
  • Letters from the insurance company regarding your accident
  • Dec page*
  • Photo ID (e.g. driver’s license)
  • ER discharge papers

*Dec page is short for declarations page – also known as the information page. This is the front page (or pages) of your car insurance policy specifying the name of the insured, as well as their address, the policy period, policy limits and other key information.

In the event that you were not the driver, but were injured as a passenger in a vehicle, the same documents (outlined above) will be needed for your first appointment.
