Initial Consultation: Three Questions for a Personal Injury Attorney

After a serious accident, you may feel that you deserve compensation for your injuries. Where are you going to start? The most obvious answer is to contact a personal injury attorney for a free consultation.

Of course, a consultation is only as good as the information that you provide. While you can expect a lot of advice from an attorney, they can only help you so much without the right details. With this in mind, you need to be prepared during your initial conversation with an attorney. This holds true no matter if you are meeting in person or speaking on the phone.

In addition to providing information on your injuries and circumstances surrounding them, you will want to ask a variety of questions. Here are three to start with:

How much experience do you have with cases similar to mine?

What do you need from me in order to move forward in a fast and efficient manner?

What is your fee for representation?

By asking these three questions, you will open up the conversation to many other details that could eventually lead to additional inquiries.

Your initial consultation is a time to provide details, ask and answer questions, and get an overall feel for what the personal injury lawyer has to offer.
