It wasn’t an easy call to make, but you did it. You contacted a Milwaukee wrongful death attorney, you explained that you had lost a loved one due to the deliberate or negligent actions of someone else, and you scheduled a free consultation to further discuss your legal rights and possible financial recovery.
What Happens at Your First Meeting with a Milwaukee Wrongful Death Lawyer?
Two important things are going to happen at your first meeting with your lawyer. It is helpful to be prepared for both of these things by bringing with you any documentation that you have from the police, from doctors, or from others and by preparing yourself to tell the story of what happened.
The first thing that will happen is that your lawyer will want to know what happened to your loved one and how it has impacted you and your family. Your lawyer will, of course, understand that this is difficult for you and will make you feel comfortable as you share what happened.
After that, your lawyer will likely talk to you about what could happen next. Your lawyer may be ready to give you your legal options and educated opinion about whether or not you should pursue a legal case. Alternatively, you and your lawyer may decide that additional information is necessary before your attorney can make this determination.
Your first meeting is mostly a conversation during which you and wrongful death attorney find out more about the case and about each other.
