20 Nov Getting Ready to Meet with a PI Lawyer? Here’s What You Should Know… (Part 2)
As a continuation of Getting Ready to Meet with a PI Lawyer? Here’s What You Should Know… (Part 1), here is some additional information regarding how you can prepare to meet with an attorney to find out if you may be entitled to compensation for your personal injury. In addition to collecting copies of the accident report and your medical bills, you can:
- Write down the details of the accident – Before a personal injury lawyer is able to determine whether you may be eligible for compensation, he will need to hear all of the details of your case – starting with how the accident happened. Because you may meet with the lawyer weeks or even months after the accident (and because some individuals’ injuries may have impacted their brain and/or memories), it’s important that you write down all of the details associated with the accident so that you don’t leave anything out when recounting the accident to the attorney.
- Collect information for any witnesses – If there were any witnesses to the accident that caused your injury, be sure to bring all info you have related to these witnesses to your initial consultation. The attorney whom you choose to move forward with will want to talk to any and all witnesses to the accident, as they may be crucial to establishing negligence and helping you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
- Jot down some questions for the lawyer – While the initial consultation is a time for a lawyer to question you about the accident and your injuries, it’s also a time for you to question the attorney about his experience so you can decide if he is the right professional to represent your interests. Before your meeting, be sure to write down some specific questions you have so that you don’t forget to ask anything once you arrive.
