Getting The Most from Your Initial Consultation After a Florida Truck Accident

If you have been in a Florida car accident involving a truck, it is advisable to consult with a qualified Florida personal injury attorney immediately. Many truck accidents in Florida result in serious injuries, such as Florida brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and other injuries. These injuries often mean high medical costs and lost income. Without legal help, many patients are unable to recover the total costs of their accident from insurance companies. Many good Florida personal injury attorneys provide free initial consultations to clients. This is a great opportunities to discuss your case, get legal advice, and to learn more about your options. If you make an appointment with a Florida personal injury attorney, there are a few things you can do to help make your initial consultation effective and useful to you:

1) Bring all your documentation. If you have medical records, a police report, or any information about the accident or injuries, it is useful to bring this along so that an attorney can evaluate your case. If you have lots of documentation, it may be useful to summarize the details of your case on one page for quick review. If you don’t have any documentation, you should still contact a good Florida personal injury attorney after your accident. He or she can listen to your account of the accident and offer advice based on this.

2) Choose wisely. This is not a mortgage quote, where you will want to get quotes from everyone. Select a Florida truck accident attorney with extensive experience and expertise. An attorney who understands the insurance industry is also useful, since the attorney can help you negotiate with your insurance provider. To find the right attorney, you can ask friends for recommendations, view attorney web sites and online information, or call firms to get details about experience and qualifications.

3) Write down a list of questions you have. You probably have many questions and speaking with an attorney, you will likely think of many more. Carefully write out all the questions you have about your situation and then focus on the five questions which are most important to you. This will help you focus on exactly what you need to ask the attorney.

4) Understand what you want from your consultation. Write down three goals you want to accomplish. For example, you might want to know your options or whether you have a case. Knowing your goals before a consultation with a Florida personal injury attorney increases the chances that you will actually meet those goals.
