By November 13, 2020 November 21st, 2020 No Comments

Suffering an injury is a stressful time. Seeking legal assistance can feel overwhelming and confusing. As experience personal injury attorneys, we understand what you are going through. We’re here to help! Before you contact an attorney for legal help, we’ve put together some details you should prepare to help make the process easier and less stressful.

Collect Information

You will need to explain in detail all the information about your accident. We recommend writing down a timeline of the accident. Be as specific and thorough as possible. Here is some key information to include:

  • names and contact information for all parties involved,
  • names and contact information for any witnesses;
  • date of the accident as well as the time and location; and
  • a brief summary of what happened

Remember, honesty is the best policy! In order to be successful with your case, we need to know the truth about the situation.

Gather Evidence

As you prepare for your consultation, gather up any evidence in your possession. This can include photographs, medical reports, police reports, financial documents, witness statements and contact information,and copies of any communication between you and the other parties. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for your attorney to understand your case and take over the investigation.

Prepare Questions

Your consultation is how you will get to know the attorney you are meeting with. Use this time wisely and ask questions so that you can ensure you are confident and comfortable in choosing the attorney and their firm to represent you. Here are some questions you should consider asking:

  • Do you have experience working on this type of case?
  • Can you explain the process?
  • Do you foresee any issues with my case?
  • What are your fees?
  • Will you personally be handling my case?
  • What are the chances that we prevail and what happens if we lose?
