Your free legal consultation is an opportunity not only for the personal injury lawyer to assess your case and see if you have a strong standing, but also for you to ask any questions you may have about fees, expenses, expected settlement amounts, expected time frames, the lawyer's experience, and more. An honest lawyer will answer your questions in a clear and upfront manner, and won't pressure you into making any immediate decisions.
Before your consultation, you should take steps to make sure you get the most out of it. Your consultation is the time to connect with your potential lawyer and make sure you know what you're getting into. This is also the time to make sure your lawyer is knowledgeable, has the right type of experience, and treats you like a person.
Before your consultation, you should:
If your injuries are too severe to do this prep work yourself, ask a friend or family member to do it for you. We understand that recovery after a traumatic incident can be tough and may limit your ability to do your due diligence, but being prepared can save you a lot of potential hassle and help you to make the right choice of personal injury lawyer.
During your free consultation, you should have your list of pre-prepared questions to ask. Don't be afraid to ask for clarifications or examples if you don't think an answer was satisfactory. In addition, you should be speaking with one of the people who will actually be handling your case, whether it's the lawyer him (or her) self or a case manager.
Questions to ask at a personal injury consultation can include:
You should also be prepared to answer questions yourself. You will be asked about the incident, your injuries, and the circumstances surrounding the incident. The more detail you can remember, the better. We recommend writing down as much as you can remember about the scene of the incident as soon as you can, while your memory is fresh.
