the Before & After - your first meeting with a personal injury lawyer
So you and the personal injury lawyer you're meeting with have gotten to know each other a bit.
And you've had a chat about your accident and the injuries you've been suffering from.
The next phase of the first meeting usually involves discussing the IMPACT your injuries have had on your life.
You could think of it as painting the BEFORE and AFTER picture.
The idea here is that any personal injury lawyer who's going to properly represent you needs to get a clear understanding of how your life has been changed.
This usually involves talking about what your life looked like before to your accident. And then comparing that to what it looks like following the accident.
I'll give you some examples.
What were you doing in terms of work, school or both? Has anything changed?
What types of sports, hobbies or leisure activities did your participate in? Are there any changes on this front?
Did you do things around the house ( cooking, cleaning, laundry etc.) prior to your accident? Has your ability to take care of these types of tasks changed?
What did your social life look like before your accident? Have any of these relationships been affected?
These are the types of things that a lawyer needs to know about in order to get a firm handle on your BEFORE and AFTER picture.
Because, with out this type of information he/she can't really appreciate or understand the impact your car accident has had on your life.
