What To Expect At A Free Consultation With A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Far too often, people get injured in a car accident, and are left to pay for their own medical treatment, cover their own expenses, and bare the costs of getting injured. If the injuries are minor, this may be the only sensical option. However, if an individual suffers serious injuries, it is in their best interests to hire a personal injury lawyer to protect their rights and seek the best compensation and treatment possible.
Do You Need To Hire The Lawyer At The Free Consultation?
It is common practice among personal injury lawyers to offer free consultations. These meetings should be not only free of charge, but also without pressure and with no strings attached. When the consultation ends, you do not need to hire the lawyer. Often times it is helpful to take some time and decide whether you want to hire the particular law firm and whether you wish to pursue a claim. It is your prerogative to retain the lawyer of your choice.
How Can You Prepare for a Free Consultation?
At the free consultation you can expect that the law office will need some piece of I.D. to identify yourself, and will likely have some paperwork to fill out. It is helpful if you arrive prepared for the consultation. If you have copies of any medical bills, other accident-related expenses, photos of the injuries, correspondence from the insurance company, police report, contact information from witnesses, that would be helpful. You can expect the initial consultation to take at least 30 minutes, and the lawyer will likely ask you a series of questions about the accident and about your injuries. You can also expect the lawyer will go through the retainer agreement with you and this should be done in great detail.
