You or a loved one has been injured at the hands of another. Medical attention has been sought, and now you’re looking to hire a personal injury law firm to assist with your case. But what should you expect? To ensure there aren’t any surprises, the attorneys at Lipkin & Apter have compiled some reasonable expectations that you should have when considering working with a personal injury law firm.
You’ll have a free initial consultation
During this consultation, you’ll explain your injuries, how the incident took place, what medical treatment you’ve had, and more. This is a two-way process, which means the law firm will also be asking you questions to better understand your case and unique situation. At this initial stage, it’s essential that you provide any and all details that you can. This includes any evidence or facts that may show that you were partially at fault for the accident. Everything will be taken into consideration when the law firm decides whether or not they’ll be taking you in as a client.
You must be prepared with evidence and answers
It’s the duty of your personal injury attorney to thoroughly understand your situation and your potential case. As stated above, they’ll ask questions to make sure that every detail is understood. You will also be asked to document your medical records, injuries, and any evidence from the accident, including photos, contact information, date/time, and more; the more evidence and information that you have the better.
You should be able to rely on your attorneys
From initial consultation to settlement, you’ll have the expertise of personal injury attorneys by your side. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the process, whether it’s during the initial consultation or when working with the insurance agency, speak up. Your lawyer should be able to provide the answers you’re looking for.
