At Carey, Danis & Lowe, we offer free initial consultations to individuals who have suffered injuries in car crashes and other accidents, or as a result of medical malpractice. The initial consultation is a chance for us to learn about you and for you to learn about us. To get the most out of our meeting, there are a handful of things you can do in advance to prepare.
Things to Do before Meeting Your Personal Injury Lawyer for the First Time
1. Do Not Stress Out
The first thing you can do is take a deep breath. We know that meeting with an attorney for the first time can seem like an intimidating experience. However, the reality is that what you’re preparing for is just a conversation. We are there to listen, answer your questions, and let you know how we can help you.
In fact, we’re the ones who should be nervous. We want you to choose us as your legal representation, but you are free to go with whichever law firm you choose. Our goal is for you to leave the consultation feeling confident that you can rely on us to successfully handle your case.
2. Do Your Research on Local Personal Injury Law Firms
To that end, you should research Carey, Danis & Lowe and other local law firms prior to our initial meeting. Browse our website, read our blog, and compare us to our competition. When we meet, feel free to ask us any questions you may have about our services or what sets us apart from other law firms.
3. Bring Any Documents that Might Potentially Be Relevant to Your Case
Be sure to bring with you anything and everything that you think might be relevant to your case. The more, the better. If we don’t need it, we can set it aside, but it’s better to have everything available so that we can fully assess your situation and evaluate your potential claims.
4. Think about What Questions You Have
Finally, many clients find it useful to come to the initial consultation with a list of questions about what happens after the consultation is over. We will be sharing a lot of information with you, but if you have specific questions, we will be more than happy to answer them. No question is too big or too small. This is your case, after all, so we want you to feel fully informed and engaged from start to finish.
Speak with a Missouri or Illinois Personal Injury Lawyer about Your Case
Of course, don’t feel like you have to be completely organized before you come in. If you’ve been injured in an accident or as a result of medical malpractice, we want to hear from you. If you can be fully prepared for your initial consultation, that’s great. If not, don’t worry. We will walk you through everything we need to get started and make sure you feel comfortable every step of the way.
