Meeting With An Attorney To Take On Your Personal Injury Case

It’s always recommended to hire an attorney before pursuing any type of personal injury case in the state of Florida, and we at want to life the veil of mystery regarding these attorney meetings and just what they entail. Not only do you want an attorney’s representation, but you want to be represented by the right attorney, and that will take a meeting to ensure you feel confident you’ve chosen one able to do the best with your case.

The Initial Consultation

During your first attorney consultation, there will be quite a few things covered. First, your attorney will want to hear all about your accident, your injuries, and all the details associated with it. He or she may ask you questions in order to gain a clearer picture of your case, and you should provide answers to these questions in the most valuable and all-encompassing way to you and your attorney’s benefit.

As you tell your lawyer all about your case and your accident, he or she will take notes and collect information regarding what you’re telling them. The information your attorney will be collecting will relate to potential witnesses, stated witnesses, facts about your medical history regarding the case, fact about the general situation surrounding the case, and anything else that may prove useful when taking the case to court.

What Else To Expect During Your Attorney Meeting

During your attorney meeting, there may be other things you can expect aside from telling your potential attorney about your case and answering any questions he or she may have. Your attorney may have you sign a release form so they can access your medical records regarding the case, and they may request information from your insurance provider regarding your policy. Both of these pieces of information are important to provide, as they can use them to lay out the details of your case regarding what your insurance may cover and what comes along with the injuries you’ve experienced.

Your attorney may also ask you if you’ve spoken to anyone regarding your accident, and if you have, just who you have spoken to. Saying the wrong thing while talking about your accident, no matter how minor, can be detrimental to your case, so it’s important your attorney is made aware of any related conversations you may have had.

It’s also important to be prepared to answer questions regarding your current injury state, and if you’re currently experiencing any injuries still lingering from the time of the accident. Your attorney may even request that you pay a visit to your doctor for an updated check on your injuries, and how they may still be affecting you during the time since the injury occurred.

Once all of the information has been laid out, your attorney may decide to take or decline your case. If he or she feels that your case will be able to be held up in a court of law, and that they can do your case justice, they will take on your case and provide you with the representation you need. If your case can be upheld, but they don’t have the expertise necessary, the attorney may refer you to another member of their law firm whom they feel may be able to handle the case a bit better.

At, we know it’s important to never underestimate the importance of an attorney, and that the process of meeting with a potential attorney should never be one to fear. If you’ve been in an accident resulting in an injury, and you’d like to take your case to the courts by meeting with an attorney, simply contact us today to learn more!
