The initial consultation with a personal injury attorney revolves around answering some key questions regarding your claim.

Initial consultations with most personal injury attorneys come at no cost to the client and can be extremely helpful in answering some of the most important questions that accompany any potential lawsuit. In the initial consultation, a personal injury attorney will explain what your rights are under the laws that apply to your case, as well as assessing the potential for success your case has.

The attorney will explain what it will take to prove that someone needs to be held accountable for the injury inflicted upon you as well as the effects that injury has on your life. A good personal injury attorney will take the time to get to know you and your situation in the initial consultation, and should arm you with a myriad of strategies you can begin immediately using to repair your circumstances.

It is a lawyer’s job to make sure you are aware of your options and the next steps to take in your situation before leaving the initial consultation.

Greenspan explains that potential clients do not leave the initial consultation without knowing their rights under state law, how they are going to pay for their medical bills, and how their other injury-related expenses such as lost wages will be handled. Reputable personal injury attorneys only get paid if they are able to recover compensation for their clients from the insurance company or responsible party who caused the injury. Only after a personal injury attorney wins your case do they receive a previously agreed-upon percentage of the winnings as their payment.

This payment structure is designed to alleviate some of the stress an injured person and their family are already under, and to prevent them from having to worry about how to pay one more bill on top of the ones they are already dealing with due to the injury. A good personal injury attorney will take the time to understand your needs and explain what otherwise might be complicated legal jargon, to make sure you understand what to expect throughout and at the conclusion of your case.
