What to Expect During the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
After being injured in an accident, you must first determine to hire a personal injury lawyer. Hiring a competent injury attorney can greatly help your case to go more smoothly. However, some may be worried about what to expect during the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer. Here are some things you can expect during the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer.
Before the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
Before the first meeting with a personal injury lawyer be sure to NOT talk with your insurance company. In addition, if the insurance company of the other party tries to contact you, do NOT speak with them. Any statements that you provide to an insurance company could be harmful to your case later. Insurance companies know how to manipulate the things you say in a way that could actually hurt your case.
Things to Bring to Your First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
- Health and auto insurance information
- Any medical bills you may have already received from the accident
- The information you gathered from the accident such as statements from witnesses, photos of the accident, etc. Read some tips on what to do after a car accident.
During the First Meeting with a Personal Injury Lawyer
After an attorney has agreed to accept your case, all communications regarding your case should go through your attorney’s office. At your first meeting, you will be asked to sign documentation called a “retainer” or a “representation agreement.” This is a contract with your attorney that outlines the terms of representation.
During the first meeting, your lawyer will ask you for greater details about the accident as well as more details about your injuries. To prepare yourself, think of any questions such as who, what, where, when, why, and how regarding the accident or your injuries. This will prepare your mind to answer the questions in your meeting more efficiently. The longevity of your first meeting will depend on how severe your injuries were and who was involved in the accident.
Keep in mind some of the questions your personal injury attorney may ask in your first meeting may be difficult to answer. Your attorney needs the information to better your case and get you the best possible result.
In some cases, your attorney may feel it is necessary to do further research regarding your case. This is not unusual and nothing to be alarmed about.

Liability for Weather Related Car Accidents
When a driver gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, they take full responsibility for their actions. Drivers are expected to stay off the roadway if weather conditions are too hazardous to operate a vehicle. That means a driver cannot use weather conditions as an excuse for causing an accident. Drivers are to use extreme caution when operating a vehicle on slick, icy or snowy roads. Precautions include slowing down, pulling over if visibility is poor, or staying home altogether.
When determining fault for an accident, a police officer will consider road conditions as well as the actions of both drivers. Typically, when a driver loses control of the vehicle, that driver will be held responsible for the damages caused by an accident. For example, if a driver slides into the vehicle in front of them due to ice, the driver will be held responsible for rear-ending and is liable for any property, medical or other damages caused. However, if icy roads cause two or more drivers to lose control and slide into each other, the responding officer may decide to hold each driver liable for their own damages.
