Preparing For A Consultation With A Personal Injury Lawyer

Filing a personal injury lawsuit comes with a lot of work. You'll have meetings to attend, appointments to keep, and hearings to keep track of. All of that comes later. First, you have to get through the initial consultation with an attorney. Here, you'll find a few tips to help you prepare for the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer.

Ask for a Questionnaire 

When you contact the attorney, ask if they have a questionnaire. Some firms have forms that their potential clients can fill out to assist them with the consultation.

This form asks all of the questions that the attorney will, but you'll be reading through it at home instead of right there on the spot. This gives you time to consider your answers and double-check the details and timeline. The more accurate you are as you provide the attorney with the information about the incident, the better they'll be able to assist you.

Gather the Documents

You'll need to gather up all of the documents pertaining to the injury. This includes all of the medical bills, medical forms, financial statements that show income loss, and any evidence that can help to prove your case.

If you have all of these documents on hand at the first appointment, you'll be able to get a good start and have better information about what will come next. You don't want the attorney to have to blindly guess about the situation, and providing him with all of these documents will go a long way in helping him help you.

Ask for Help

If you're having a hard time getting around due to the injury, inquire about home visits from the attorney. Many personal injury firms will come to you instead of you having to suffer through the commute to the office.

Your recovery comes first, and if rest is needed, rest is what you should do. The attorney working with you will completely understand and do all that's possible to make the process as convenient and painless as possible.

If for some reason the attorney can't come to you, you may be able to get assistance with transportation due to your injury. Ask the office for information about assistance with transportation.

Hopefully, things will work out as well as you hope. These tips should help you prepare for that first meeting and get the ball rolling to recouping what you've lost due to this injury. For more information, contact a personal injury law firm.

Texting driver caused my accident

Have you ever picked up your phone and sent or read a text message while you were driving? Do you know just how dangerous that is? All that it takes is one split second for your life to change forever and to change someone else's life forever. I was hit from behind because a well-dressed business man couldn't wait until he was stopped to respond to a text message. I saw him coming in my rear view mirror, but there was nothing that I could do about it. This accident happened over a year ago and I still suffer every day. My blog is filled with information that can help others that have been injured by texting drivers.
