How to Deal with A Personal Injury Lawyer - The Bottomline

You got hurt in a car accident and you've decided to talk to a personal injury lawyer.

What are you going to say?

Is there specific information that the lawyer is going to want?

What's the formula you need to follow?

Ok. I think it goes without saying that there's a bunch of information that any lawyer you talk to is going to want.

Thats' the easy part. Just answer the questions you're asked.

But what about the way you approach this conversation?

Two words tell the whole story.

Candid and Forthcoming.

Candid Tell it like it is. The only way that a personal injury lawyer is going to be to properly advise you is if they know "the real story". Your accident; your injuries; your work history; any health problems you may have had prior to your accident. You've got to be 100% on the up and up. Otherwise you seriously handicap any personal injury lawyer who's trying to help you.

Forthcoming - Make sure you give any personal injury lawyer you talk to "all the facts". Being selective with the information you choose to provide or deciding that you want to be "private" about things will make it very difficult for any personal injury lawyer to truly understand your situation and properly guide you. Lay it all out and let the lawyer decide what's relevant and what's not.

Questions about what to say when you speak to a personal injury lawyer for the first time following your car crash?
