Our experienced personal injury attorney is here to help make sure that you are properly represented and that you are getting the compensation that you deserve. Below we have several things that you can expect to happen during your attorney interview.
During the initial interview, your attorney will want to hear about what happened to you as well as collect an array of information from you. The length of the initial interview can vary depending on the severity of your injuries. In a simple negligence case, it usually does not take too long. This is especially true if you have prepared for the meeting. However, a case that is more complex or involves serious injuries could take much longer.
As you describe your accident, your lawyer may ask you questions about it. Lawyers typically wait until you have told them everything before asking any questions. Some of the questions may be difficult to hear, let alone answer. Your personal injury lawyer needs to know the answers in order to help you find the best solution for your case. They will collect a variety of information from you that relates to the accident, your medical treatment, who else was involved, and any potential witnesses. Here’s what you can expect to discuss:
You may be asked to sign medical authorizations and releases so your attorney can obtain your medical records. They will want to know about all your insurance coverage.
You will be asked if you have talked to any insurance adjusters. If you have, what you have said and whether you provided a recorded or written statement about the accident will be requested.
You will be asked if anyone else has interviewed you about the accident or your injuries, and if so, whom you talked to and what you said.
You may be asked about the current status of your injuries if is not obvious to see. This includes whether you are in pain, what your prognosis is, and so forth.
Your lawyer may advise you to see your doctor regularly if you have any physical pains or other issues. If you don’t see your doctor, the defendant may argue that you aren’t seriously hurt. This is because there are no visits that tend to indicate that there are no problems.
Your attorney may tell you that your case will be considered and that you will hear if they take your case. This is a common practice in injury cases, so don’t read anything into it.
