If you were hurt in a car accident, injured because of medical malpractice, or suffered a serious personal injury, the first thing to do is focus on your health and recovery. But once you are on the path to healing, you might wonder if you can receive financial compensation.
When you search the internet for personal injury lawyers, you’ll no doubt see that most offer a free consultation. You might wonder if these consultations are truly free or if they are really some type of sales pitch.
First, we want to assure you that when you meet with the personal injury lawyers at Muth Law, P.C., your initial personal injury consultation is ALWAYS FREE. We also want to take this opportunity to explain what to expect during your initial personal injury consultation.
How to Prepare for Your Initial Personal Injury Consultation
When you meet with us for the first time, we will review the facts and circumstances of your case to determine whether we can help you. To allow us to assess your situation as thoroughly and accurately as possible, bring as much information with you as possible. This often includes
- The date, time, and location where you were injured
- The people that caused your injuries
- Any accident or incident reports
- Copies of your medical records and doctor bills
- Documentation of any time you missed from work because of your injuries
You may not have all of this information when you first meet with an attorney. But the more information you can provide, the better we will be able to assess your case. As we learn more about you and your situation, we can better understand the nature of the accident and how you were hurt, the nature of your injuries and the treatment you required, your prognosis, and who might be at fault.
What to Expect During the Initial Personal Injury Consultation
During your first meeting we will ask lots of questions. We want to know what happened, any injuries you suffered, the medical treatment you had and might need to have in the future, and information about any time you missed from work and lost wages.
As we are assessing your claim and whether we can help, we expect that you will be analyzing us and whether we are the type of personal injury law firm you would like to have handle your case.
When you choose a personal injury lawyer to represent you, you want to choose someone with experience handling the same type of case that you have.
We also expect that you will have questions for us about what you can expect and the likelihood of success. We are happy to answer your questions and want you to understand what is happening and what to expect.
After Your Initial Personal Injury Consultation
At the end of your initial consultation, we might ask you to sign a form that authorizes the release of your medical information to us. We might also ask you to sign a written agreement authorizing us to act as your lawyer. These documents allow us to move forward with your case and gather the evidence necessary to investigate your case further and prove that you are entitled to financial compensation.
We understand that a personal injury can create financial stress, and our goal is to make your situation better, not worse. That is why we partner with our personal injury clients by representing them on a contingency fee. This means you will not pay us an attorney fee unless we recover money for you.
