Free Personal Injury Consultation: 4 Things You Should Know
You have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, and you may have no idea what you can do about it. The aftermath of an accident can be overwhelming, and it is only natural – and essential – to be consumed with regaining your physical health and well-being. It is also, however, important to go after the compensation to which you are entitled and that you are going to need to recover fully. As such, consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney is well advised, and the following tips can help you make the most of that initial free consultation.
One: Do Not Put off Scheduling Your Consultation
Taking care of the details after an accident-causing injury has upended your life is time-consuming and distracting. It is easy to lose sight of the fact that you need to consult with a skilled personal injury attorney, but do not let your ability to bring a claim slip away from you. The statute of limitations in Texas is generally two years from the date of the accident in question, and that two years can fly by.
Two: Bring All the Evidence You Have with You
Your personal injury claim will ultimately be determined by the evidence in your case, which is why you should share all of it with the attorney at your free initial consultation. It is a good idea to bring all of the following that applies with you to the consult:
Pictures and videos taken at the accident scene
Eyewitness testimonies and contact information
Your related medical records and any related medical notes
The accident report or police report
Your account of the accident
Any communication between you and the adverse insurance company
The more information you have, the better. If you have it neatly compiled, that is great. If you do not, the personal injury attorney will glean the information he or she needs.
Three: Have Your Questions at the Ready
You have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, and you naturally have questions. Bring them along to your consultation. For example, you are likely wondering if you have a solid claim, and a reputable personal injury attorney will carefully explain the strengths and weaknesses of your case and will only take it on if he or she believes you will ultimately prevail.
Four: Ask What Happens Next
After discussing the matter with the personal injury attorney at your free consult, ask what happens next. If you decide to move forward together, he or she will carefully prepare you for what is to come.
