Bring a Lot of Notes

A consultation with a car accident attorney is not only a chance for you to get to know your lawyer, but also to chart a course of action. The following are some tips that can help you get the most out of your meeting.

  • Jot down every detail you can think of regarding your accident, including doctor’s appointments, phone conversations, and any dealings you’ve had with insurance adjusters. If you have received any e-mails regarding the accident, print them out and bring them with you as well.
  • If you have been hurt, keep detailed records of the treatment that you have received, any medications you have been prescribed, and any information you have regarding the doctor’s diagnosis of your injury.
  • Don’t hold back any information you think will help your case. Be honest as possible so that your lawyer can help you as much as possible. The more forthcoming you are, the better your attorney will be able to serve you.
