What to Bring to Your Free Initial Consultation
Visiting your California personal injury lawyer for the first time can be intimidating, especially when you or your loved one are reeling from the effects of a personal injury accident. Yet speaking with an attorney is the first step toward recovering the compensation and monetary damages you need to address your losses and expenses. Heiting & Irwin, your Riverside personal injury lawyers, offer new personal injury clients a free initial case consultation wherein we discuss your circumstances and the legal rights you may be able to assert.
What to Expect at Your Initial Consultation
No two initial consultations are alike, but we do attempt to address your most pressing concerns and questions during your initial consultation. Whether you choose to retain the services of Heiting & Irwin or not, we want you to leave your initial consultation feeling more powerful and in control of your future. To help ensure that your concerns and questions are adequately addressed, it may be helpful for you to:
- Come with your questions written down: It is normal for individuals to forget important questions that they wanted answered during their consultation. To help avoid this, keep a notebook or pad of paper handy and write down any questions you may have in advance of your consultation. Bring this pad of paper to your consultation and provide it to the person with whom you meet. This can help ensure your concerns are addressed.
- Come with any documentation, letters, or other communication you received or have gathered pertaining to your accident: Allow us to examine any letters seeking a settlement of your claim or any other type of communications you have received since your accident occurred. This can help us properly advise you as to what your next steps ought to be.
- Come with photographs or diagrams of your accident: If you had the opportunity to photograph your injuries and/or diagram the scene of the accident, bring these with you and allow us to look at them. This enables us to have a better understanding of how your accident occurred, the extent of your injuries, and who may be responsible for causing your crash.
Once our office has an adequate understanding of the basic facts present in your injury accident, we will address your questions and concerns and advise you as to your legal rights. We will also let you know what steps you ought to take if you wish to assert your rights and pursue a claim for compensation.
