Representation for Injuries and Accidents
You need legal representation if you or someone you love has been involved in or hurt:
- In a car accident
- Through a motorcycle accident
- By a truck accident
- On the job
- By a faulty product
- On someone else’s property
Additionally, if a family member was killed in an accident, you need a good lawyer to represent you. Even if you are being offered an insurance settlement, it’s essential you talk with a skilled attorney who can help you understand your rights and explore all of the options before making a decision.
What to Expect at a Free Case Consultation
A free consultation is your opportunity to meet the attorney and discuss your case. When you come to the meeting, bring with you any paperwork you have about your situation. The lawyer will go over your case, explain what you can expect, and how they can help you.
It can help to make a list of questions to ask at the meeting, including:
- What kind of outcome can I expect in this kind of case?
- How long will it take for the case to conclude?
- Can this be settled or will it go to trial?
- What additional information do you need from me?
- What are your fees?
- Do you have experience in this kind of case?
The attorney will answer your questions, explain what your rights are in the case, and tell you a bit about themselves. The lawyer will be honest with you about your chances for the outcome you are hoping for and explain how the case will move forward. If you would like to work with the lawyer, they will give you a retainer agreement, which is a contract for their services. It will explain their rates and how you will be billed.
The most important thing to do at a free consultation is to get a feel for what the lawyer is like. Is this someone you feel comfortable with and want to handle your legal matter? Do you trust them to represent you and help you make important legal decisions? Not every lawyer is a good fit for every client, so listen to your gut when making choosing your attorney.
