Whenever someone is involved in an accident in New York – whether it be a car accident, a workplace accident or a slip and fall accident – if injuries are sustained, legal action is sometimes required to recover compensation for your losses.

A NY personal injury lawyer helps accident victims file their case and negotiate with the other party. Before you hire a lawyer, usually you would meet with the lawyer during a free consultation to discuss your case and determine whether or not they are the right lawyer for you. What happens during these consultations? What should you expect? Read further for everything you need to know about consultations with a lawyer.

We urge you to meet with as many lawyers as you need after suffering a personal injury. The NY injury lawyers at Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law are focused on getting our clients the results they need to move on with their life. Call us to schedule a free consultation.

Why Do Lawyers Have A Free Consultation?

There are various reasons to schedule a first appointment with a NY personal injury lawyer. During the initial consultation, you are given the chance to discuss your case with a legal professional and get legal advice, as well as determine whether or not this particular lawyer is the right fit for you.

You can ask the lawyer questions about their firm, including their experience, previous case outcomes, thoughts on your case and any concerns or questions you may have. The consultation also gives the lawyer a chance to assess the likelihood of success for your case. Additionally, the first consultation gives both you and the lawyer a chance to assess how comfortable you are with each other and, in the end, decide whether or not to retain their services.

What To Have Ready For Your Free Consultation

When you have scheduled your initial consultation with a NY personal injury lawyer, you want to get the most out of your first meeting, which means you should be prepared.

When you see a potential lawyer for the first time, you will be advised by the lawyer's staff to bring specific items or information to the consultation. If they do not, a personal injury victim should present as much relevant evidence or information as possible for their initial appointment.

An injury victim needs to bring the necessary documents and information for the initial consultation, but also be truthful with the lawyer. An attorney cannot effectively assess your case or represent a client if they do not fully understand the circumstances of the accident and their injuries.

Things to bring to a first meeting with a personal injury lawyer in New York should include:

  • Witness contact info and their statements
  • Photos and/or video of the accident scene, injuries or anything relevant 
  • Police reports
  • Medical records and expenses
  • Text messages, voicemails or social media posts
  • Anything you recall telling the insurance company
