What Happens During a Free Consultation?

After an accident that results in an injury, you may have questions about your legal rights and how to recover financial compensation for your losses. The easiest way to have your questions answered is to schedule a consultation with a personal injury lawyer. The following are answers to some frequently asked questions about what happens during a personal injury consultation:

What Are the Fees for Consulting with an Attorney?

This is the first question that most people have regarding a consultation. The good news is that an initial case consultation is generally absolutely free. Not only will you not owe the attorney a penny for his or her time, but you also are under no obligation to hire the attorney to handle your claim. In fact, any attorney who works on a contingent fee schedule will not charge you any money for legal services at all unless your claim is successful. You can read more about Florida Bar Contingency Fee Rules on Harvard's blog.

How Should I Prepare for the Consultation?

It is a good idea to go into your consultation prepared. You should have all information related to your accident and your injuries - any evidence that you have, medical bills, police reports, etc. - organized and ready to present. Further, you should come prepared with a list of questions that you want to ask the attorney. Some important questions to ask include:

  • What type of law do you practice?
  • What is your experience dealing with injuries like mine?
  • What is your success rate?
  • Have you ever been to trial?
  • What chance does my claim have?
  • How much do you charge?
  • How long will the process take?
  • How much do you think I can recover?

The more questions that you ask, the better. You want to hire someone with experience and someone with whom you feel comfortable working.

Where Does a Consultation with an Attorney Happen?

If you are requesting a consultation with Rosenthal, Levy, Simon & Ryles, there are a few different locations where we can meet for your free case review. We have two office locations: one in West Palm Beach, and one in Port St. Lucie. If necessary, we can also travel to your location to conduct a consultation. In some situations, a phone consultation is also appropriate.

How Do I Know if I Need a Consultation?

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault and have suffered losses (economic or/and noneconomic) as a direct result, you may have a personal injury claim. You should meet with an attorney to discuss how to file the claim, who may be liable, who may have been negligent, and more.
