When an accident causes injuries, legal action is typically the route most victims take. After an accident, people who have suffered injuries make an appointment for a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer. That first consultation gives you and the lawyer a chance to discuss the case, the accident and decide if taking legal action is the appropriate course of action. However, what actually transpires during a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer? This is something we go over in the following article.

If you've been injured in an accident in New Jersey that is someone else's fault, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against that party. The NJ personal injury attorneys from Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law can help you make sense of your case.

Call us today for a free consultation. What occurs during this free consultation is as follows.

What Is A Consultation For?

There are a number of reasons to schedule a first consultation with a personal injury attorney. During the initial appointment, the accident victim can ask the lawyer questions regarding their experience, previous outcomes, the victim's case, and other inquiries.

The meeting also gives the lawyer a chance to assess the likelihood of success for the accident victim's case. The consultation also gives the parties a chance to assess how comfortable they are with each other and decide whether or not to work together.

What To Prepare For Your Free Consultation With Your NJ Personal Injury Attorney

For the accident victim to get the most out of their initial consultation, you should come prepared. A personal injury victim should have as much relevant evidence as possible to present to the attorney during their initial consultation. Items that are frequently brought to the first meeting include:

  • Witness names
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Any relevant text messages, voicemails, or posts on social media
  • Notes the victim made when speaking with insurance
  • Photos or videos of the accident scene and injuries
  • Police reports
  • Copies of all invoices and medical records

Be Honest With The Attorney During The Consultation

An injury victim needs to bring the necessary paperwork for the initial appointment, but also be truthful with their potential lawyer. An attorney cannot represent a client if they do not fully disclose the circumstances of the accident and victim's injuries. You must be honest about everything that happened before the accident — even details that could help the defendant in the case — when speaking with a lawyer.
