Following up on How to Prepare for an Initial Consult with a Personal Injury Lawyer (Part 1), here are some additional tips on how you can prepare yourself to meet with a personal injury lawyer. Doing some preparation prior to the initial consult can ensure that the first meeting with the attorney is as useful and informative as possible.
- Bring everything you have related to the accident – This includes bring any medical bills, police reports, photos of the accident, insurance correspondence, etc. All documents and pictures you have related to the accident will be crucial to helping the lawyer establish liability and determine what amount of compensation you may be entitled to. While you can always provide this essential evidence down the line, providing it upfront can save both you and the lawyer a significant amount of time (and it can save you lawyer’s fees in the future).
- Think about what you want to ask the lawyer – Have some specific questions in mind that you plan on asking the lawyer during your initial consult. While you may want to ask about how the case will progress and how long it can take for you to secure compensation, it’s also a good idea to ask about the lawyer’s specific experience, as well as his past case results.
Experienced personal injury lawyers offer initial consults for free because they are passionate about helping victims and do not want create additional financial burdens for those who may already be paying expensive medical bills and/or who may not be able to work while they recover.
