How Do I Prepare For My Free Consultation With My Fresno Injury Lawyer?
When you are injured in an accident, you have many questions such as:
- “Who will pay my medical bills?”
- “How do I recover my lost wages?”
- “I need a vehicle. Who pays to replace or repair my car?”
- “If I cannot go back to work, what will I do for money?”
- “How long will it take to settle my accident claim?”
- “I don’t have the money to hire an attorney. What can I do?”
These are just some of the questions that our Fresno injury lawyers answer during your free consultation. We understand you may be frightened, stress, frustrated, and anxious. We want to help ease your mind by answering all your questions about filing a personal injury claim. We do this without charging you for the first appointment because we believe every accident victim deserves to have sound legal counsel regardless of their current financial situation.
Therefore, the first step you should take when preparing for your consultation with our Fresno injury lawyer is to write a list of the questions you want to ask the attorney about your case. No question you have is too big or too small. If it is something that is worrying you, then it is important to us.
Make Notes About The Accident
Another important step is to make notes about the accident as soon as possible after you are injured. Memories can fade as time passes. If you make notes while the accident is fresh on your mind, you capture details you may forget later. As you continue to think about the details of the accident, add to your notes. You will be asked many times during your case, “Can you tell me how the accident occurred?” You need to be prepared to answer this question during your first consultation to the best of your ability.
Bring every document related to the accident you have received to your first consultation. Dividing the documents by subject is often very helpful for you and the attorney. For example, keep all insurance documents in one folder, medical records in another folder, invoices and receipts in a third folder, and so forth. You do not need to have a box of file folders. Keeping the documents in separate stacks is sufficient if you do not have folders.
Further along in your case, your Fresno injury lawyer will contact medical providers to obtain complete copies of your medical records. However, it is often helpful during your first consultation to have any information you have received from your medical providers regarding tests and treatments for the attorney to review.
