What Can I Expect During the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer?
After being injured in an accident, you must first determine to hire a personal injury lawyer. Hiring a competent injury attorney can greatly help your case to go more smoothly. However, some may be worried about what to expect during the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer. Here are some things you can expect during the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer.
Prior to the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
Prior to the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer be sure to NOT talk with your insurance company. In addition, if the insurance company of the other party tries to contact you, do NOT speak with them. Any statements that you provide to an insurance company could be harmful to your case later. Insurance companies know how to manipulate the things you say in a way that could actually hurt your case.
What to Bring to Your First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
- Health and auto insurance information
- Any medical bills you may have already received from the accident
- Information you gathered from the accident such as statements from witnesses, photos of the accident, etc. Read some tips on what to do after a car accident.
During the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
After an attorney has agreed to accept your case, all communications regarding your case should go through your attorney’s office. At your first meeting, you will be asked to sign documentation called a “retainer” or a “representation agreement.” This is a contract with your attorney that outlines the terms of representation.
During the first meeting, your lawyer will ask you greater details about the accident as well as more details about your injuries. To prepare yourself, think of any questions such as who, what, where, when, why, and how regarding the accident or your injuries. This will prepare your mind to answer the questions in your meeting more efficiently. The longevity of your first meeting will depend on how severe your injuries were and who was involved in the accident.
Keep in mind some of the questions your personal injury attorney may ask in your first meeting may be difficult to hear and answer. Your attorney needs the information to better your case and get you the best possible result.
In some cases, your attorney may feel it is necessary to do further research regarding your case. This is not unusual and nothing to be alarmed about.
How Long Will It Take to Settle My Personal Injury Case?
Every personal injury case is different and will take different amounts of time to settle. It can take months or it could even take years to reach a fair settlement agreement with all parties responsible.
A responsible party that often drags out a fair settlement is the insurance company. Often times insurance companies like to make a “lowball” offer to get the client to settle faster. These offers are to persuade accident victims to avoid pursuing a lawsuit or the case further. However, if you have an experienced attorney on your side from Parke Gordon Law Firm, you are in good hands. Our lawyers will fight for every penny you are owed.
By refusing to accept an initial lowball settlement offer from an insurance company, you and your attorney may proceed with a follow-up offer or pre-trial preparation.
