It’s reasonable to be concerned about the cost of speaking with an attorney after you’re injured at work, in a crash or another circumstance. You want to know that you won’t be wasting your time or money on a claim that may not pay out.
The good news is that there are attorneys who will set aside time to speak with you about your potential claim and case without charging you anything. Many offer free consultations in office, while others are willing to set aside reasonable time to speak with you and help you determine if you’d like to move forward with a case before having you sign any kind of contract or payment agreement.
Money should not get in the way of making a personal injury claim
It is important not to let your concern about finances be what prevents you from holding someone else accountable for their actions. If you’ve been hurt and are in the hospital or if you have medical bills or other expenses from a collision, then you deserve to have your case heard and to determine if you can seek compensation from the other party.
What can you do to get the most out of your free consultation?
If you decide to move forward with a free consultation, it’s important to have your documents and facts in order before you arrive. Your attorney’s job is to assess your case and help you know if you have enough evidence or support to win. They will review your documents, such as medical reports, police reports and witness information, to let you know what they think about your case. If they believe that it can move forward successfully, then you should discuss the potential timeline, the attorney’s fees and what to expect as you move forward with your case.
A free consultation is a great time for you to get a feel for an attorney and to decide if you’d like to work with them. It’s also an opportunity to learn more about your case and if it is worth seeking compensation from another involved party or insurance provider.
