Free Consultation with a Personal Injury Lawyer
No matter what type of accident you had, recovering from your injuries should be your top priority. Often, recovering requires pursuing compensation from the negligent party who caused your accident. To do that, you’ll need to file a personal injury claim.
Unfortunately, personal injury cases aren’t always easy to handle, even if you have concrete proof of the responsible party’s fault. Insurance companies generally make things complicated, and the legal battle can be frustrating to fight through, so what do you do?
Many people choose to hire a personal injury attorney to represent them. But which lawyer should you hire? It’s helpful to have a consultation with any lawyer you’re considering to see if he or she is a fit for your needs.
The attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates offer a free consultation to look into your case and give you an idea of why you should hire us. Here are some tips on how to prepare for your consultation and what to expect.
Items to Bring with You
It’s appropriate to bring anything and everything you can think of regarding your personal injury case, including any of the following materials:
- Insurance documentation, if filed
- Medical records or bills from after your accident, as well as physicians’ notes or referrals
- Copies of any court or legal documents you’ve already obtained
- Copies of identification, like drivers licenses, Social Security cards, etc.
- Pictures, bystanders statements, and your own statement regarding the accident, if available
Feel free to reach out prior to your consultation if you have any questions about what you might need to bring with you.
What Are the Fees?
During a consultation, always ask the lawyer how he or she charges for his or her services. Our firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay if we win your case.
What the Consultation Accomplishes
A free consultation is just as much a service for you as it is for us. It gives us a chance to hear all the facts of your case before the process of pursuing compensation is officially started.
It also gives you a chance to feel out our attorneys and decide whether you’d like us to represent you.
