Meeting With An Alpharetta Personal Injury Attorney
Are you planning for your first meeting with an Alpharetta personal injury attorney after an accident? Your lawyer will first find out what happened to you or your loved one. Simultaneously, he or she may get various pieces of information from you.
The underlying circumstances that led to your injuries will determine the length of your initial interview with an Alpharetta personal injury attorney. The first meeting probably will not take long in rather straightforward cases such as auto accidents, especially if you come prepared.
The initial meeting will usually take longer in more complex cases such as injuries from defective products or medical malpractice.
How Consultations Work
First, our Alpharetta personal injury attorney will ask you to describe everything about your accident. He or she will listen to you carefully. The lawyer may ask some questions about it. Attorneys often ask questions after you have told them everything.
It may prove difficult to hear some of these questions, let alone answer. However, our Alpharetta personal injury attorney can help you find the best solution for your case if you provide the answers to the questions.
The lawyer will gather various pieces of information relating to your injury or accident, including medical treatment facts, potential witnesses, others involved in the accident, and more. Also, the attorney will likely discuss the practical aspects of your personal injury case such as different types of legal fees, the kinds of costs you can expect, and a representation agreement.
