For most people, meeting with an attorney isn’t a regular occurrence. Even when you’re familiar with the legal system through work or other aspects of your life, meeting with a personal injury lawyer can be different – in this case, you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury.
It’s understandable that you might be nervous about the first meeting with your lawyer. If you think you may have a personal injury case, it’s important to get in touch with a personal injury attorney.
What Should I Bring With Me?
While bringing any documentation you have immediately available is a good step, the main thing you should bring is yourself. The first step any attorney is going to take is to just sit down and have a conversation about the details of the case.
At Ginnis & Krathen P.A., the first thing we do is help you understand whether or not you have a case, and if so, what we can do to help you. That’s why we offer a no-fee consultation upfront. If you think you may have a case, simply reach out, and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you and walk you through every step of the way.
What Does That First Meeting Look Like?
The goal of the first meeting is to hear your best recollection of the events and help you understand what your rights are. We have a great deal of experience and focus in the field of personal injury and wrongful death cases and of a wide variety of legal cases, so our aim is first and foremost, to hear the details of your case.
You should also feel free to be as curious as you want to be. If you have set questions beforehand, feel free to bring them with you, and ask away. It might be a good idea to write down any questions you have beforehand so you won’t forget to ask them at the meeting.
After that first meeting, you should have a very good idea of whether or not you have a case, and what the next steps are. At Ginnis & Krathen P.A., we are with you through every detail of the process, so you don’t have to guess or go through it alone.
