If you or a loved one have been injured due to someone’s negligence, having an attorney can be a great help in getting the justice and compensation to which you are entitled to. The first step to getting compensation after your accident, and after you have sought medical attention, is scheduling a consultation with your chosen lawyer. Below are things you should know about a free consultation with a personal injury attorney:
You Will Have the Time to Know the Attorney
An initial consultation is not only about the attorney getting information about your case, but also, about you learning about the attorney. This will be the perfect time to get to know them and decide whether you want to work with them or not. You can freely ask questions about the attorney’s experience in his/her field. You should also take the time and think if you are comfortable with the attorney handling your case. Once you feel like you can trust the attorney and have the right answers to your questions, you can now determine if the attorney you are having a consultation with is the right one for you.
Do not feel pressured and obligated to hire an attorney after a free consultation. Most personal injury attorneys offer no-obligation consultations, so, at the end of the day, you still have the choice to choose which one you want to work with.
Use Your Time Wisely
Although the consultation is free, there is a big chance that the consultation time will be limited. It is best that you make good use of every minute and arrive at your consultation early and prepared. You can prepare your questions in advance. During the consultation, feel free to ask as many questions as possible but prioritize the important ones.
Provide A Detailed Statement of Your Accident
Making good use of your consultation time means you give relevant facts and good details of your accident to the attorney. This will help the attorney evaluate your case and in turn, help you to get compensation and justice. The attorney will be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the case if you give accurate details.
Ask About Fees
It is also very important to discuss fees with the attorney to avoid a surprise or disagreement as the case pursues. Darfoor Law Firm works with a contingency fee. A contingency fee means an attorney works in return for a percentage of a settlement, verdict, or jury award. If a personal injury attorney works on a contingency fee basis, the attorney only gets paid if a client receives a settlement, verdict, or jury award.
Discuss Statute of Limitations
It is imperative to inquire about the statute of limitations if your injuries occurred some time ago. If it has been some time since your injuries, you may want to know if you are still eligible to file a claim and receive compensation.
