3 Tips on Preparing for Your First Meeting With a Personal Injury Attorney, Torrington, Connecticut

If you were hurt in an accident that was not your fault and your financial security has suffered as a result, you would probably agree the sooner you recover compensation, the better. Although legal proceedings are often unpredictable, there are certain aspects of the claims process that are in your control. For example, by preparing for your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney, you can ensure your case gets off to a good start. Below, the legal team at The Law Offices of Conti & Levy in Torrington, CT, explains how to get ready for your first meeting with a lawyer.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation With a Personal Injury Attorney

1. Gather All Essential Documents

Your lawyer needs to review all the evidence you have gathered up to this point to determine the strength of your claim. Essential documents include the official police report, photographs of the scene where the accident occurred, medical records, the names and contact information of any witnesses, and any other documents you have regarding the incident.

2. Prepare a Statement

Document the circumstances leading up to the incident, as well all the details you can remember, including the weather conditions and traffic flow.

3. Write Down Your Questions

Before the meeting, write down everything you’d like to ask so you do not forget anything once the appointment has begun. For example, you might want to know the fee structure or how accessible the lawyer will be once you hire them.
