Were you recently involved in an accident? This could be anything from a car accident to a slip and fall. If so, you may be thinking about hiring an attorney.
Once your injuries are taken care of, it is time to contact an experienced attorney to discuss the finer points of your case.
During your first conversation, here are three questions to ask:
1. Do I have a case? Obviously, this is the most important question. If the answer is yes, you can move forward in the appropriate manner. If the answer is no, you don’t need to ask any other questions.
2. What do you need from me in order to move forward? Your attorney is not a mind reader. You must supply accurate information regarding your accident, without delay. No matter what is requested of you, make sure you offer the information as soon as possible.
3. What is the timeline? In many cases, a personal injury case can take years to come to a conclusion. It is important that you are ready for the long haul, even if things speed up a bit. At the very least, your attorney can give you a timeline to give you a better idea of how things will unfold.
