Here is an idea of what you can expect during your first meeting with a personal injury attorney:
- You may be asked to sign a form authorizing the release of your medical information from healthcare providers, so the firm can obtain your medical records on your behalf.
- You will need to provide information about all your insurance coverages.
- You will be asked if you have talked to any insurance adjustors and if so, what you have said and whether you provided a recorded or written statement about the accident or injury.
- The attorney will ask if anyone else has interviewed you about the accident or your injuries, and if so, with whom you spoke and the details of what was discussed.
- If your injuries aren’t obvious, you may be asked about the current status of your injuries – whether you are in pain and what your prognosis is.
- You will be advised to see your doctor if you have any lingering physical problems or complaints. Understand that if you don’t see your doctor and later decide to pursue a legal claim for your injuries, the defendant may argue that you aren’t seriously hurt, on the theory that no doctor visits indicates no medical problems.
- The attorney may decide to consider your case, and to contact you shortly after the meeting to discuss your legal options. This is a common practice in injury cases, so you should not read anything into it.
- The attorney may ask you to sign a fee agreement or contract for representation. Read the contract carefully and ask questions before you sign it. You should be able to take the contract home to study it before signing.
The attorney will tell you what the next steps are. There may be a factual investigation before a lawsuit is filed or settlement is considered, and the lawyer may be able to give you a rough estimate of how long it will take to resolve the case.
