At Karnas Law Firm, our personal injury lawyers strive to ensure the best outcome possible for our clients. To succeed in this venture, we must facilitate open and timely communication between clients and attorneys. If you are considering working with a Tucson personal injury lawyer to resolve your case, you should know what to expect before the meeting takes place to make it truly worthwhile. After having provided thousands of consultations for our clients, our lawyers have identified three expectations for your first consultation.
Expect Answers to Detailed Questions About Your Case
To best determine whether you have a solid personal injury case, your attorney will need to ask you several questions about your claim. When answering these questions, you should be entirely truthful in your response, even if you think a particular fact will be harmful to the outcome of your case. Being open and honest about the circumstances that led to your injuries will allow your attorney to evaluate the chances of a successful outcome with accuracy.
To prepare for this portion of the meeting, be sure to gather all the documents associated with your accident and bring them with you to review alongside your attorney. It would also be ideal to come to the consultation with questions of your own.
Expect an Opportunity to Have Your Concerns Addressed
Before selecting an attorney, it’s crucial to gain insight into the attorney’s background and experience in handling cases like yours. Some questions you may want to ask include “How many cases like mine have you handled?” and “How will you stay in touch with me about the status of my case?” The more you learn about your attorney, the more you will be able to gauge whether or not this is the right lawyer for you.
Additionally, you may be concerned about what type of damages you can realistically expect in the resolution of your case. For example, in a car accident case, it may be possible to recover compensation for:
- All medical bills related to the accident
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
By reviewing the details of your case with your accident lawyer in Tucson, you will get a better idea of what to realistically expect from the legal system.
Expect to Learn about Your Client Rights
After learning about your attorney and his legal practice, you should feel comfortable allowing him to work on resolving your case. As a client, you should know what to expect from an attorney-client relationship. All fifty states have a bar association that provides attorneys with licenses. Your attorney must abide by the state’s rules of professional conduct. Your attorney should go into details about what you should expect throughout the duration of your relationship.
As a client of Karnas Law Firm, you can expect to be treated with courtesy and respect. You can expect the Tucson personal injury lawyer on your case to fully inform you about attorney’s fees; at our firm, we provide services on a contingency basis meaning that you will only pay us if and until we succeed in winning a settlement. You can also expect prompt updates from your attorney regarding the status of your case while you focus on healing.
