3 Things to Expect When Meeting With an Injury Claims Attorney, Kalispell, Montana

When you’ve been seriously injured through no fault of your own, a trusted attorney may be able to help you collect compensation for your losses. Fortunately, many law firms provide free consultations to discuss injury claims with accident victims, but you may not know what to expect or how to prepare for your meeting. Below are some of the questions the attorney will have and what you should bring to your initial consultation.

3 Things to Expect When Meeting an Injury Attorney

1. Questions About the Accident

injury claimBefore discussing legal options or settlement amounts, the lawyer will need to develop a thorough understanding of the circumstances in which you were hurt. They’ll also want information about any medical treatment you’ve received so far and give you the opportunity to ask questions of your own.

2. Discussion of Fee Structures

Attorneys handling injury claims typically work on a contingency basis, meaning they take their fee out of your final settlement. However, some law firms do require you to pay a few nominal up-front costs, including filing fees or investigative expenses. The attorney with whom you’re meeting should be able to clearly explain what you’ll be expected to pay.

3. Initial Offer Discussions

If the insurance company has already contacted you regarding your injury claim, the attorney will want to know exactly what was said and by whom. You should also bring any documentation you’ve received from the insurer, such as a settlement offer, requests for information, or a letter denying your claim.
