What do I say when I call a personal injury lawyer's office for the first time?

A call to a personal injury lawyer isn't something that you make regularly. Unlike other types of lawyers that can help you prevent future legal problems, a personal injury lawyer is only necessary after you've been hurt in an accident.

Therefore, many people make their first call to a personal injury lawyer when they are in pain, overwhelmed, and anxious about what to do next.

Don't Worry About Your First Call

There is no script that you need to use, and there is no need to worry about whether you are saying the right or wrong things.

When you call any of our Midwest personal injury law firm offices, all you have to do is give your name and a brief sentence or two about why you are calling. For example, you could say, "My name is John Doe, and I was hurt in a Milwaukee car accident. I'm not sure what to do next." Our staff will ask you the right questions, make you feel comfortable, and let you know whether you should schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer.

If making a phone call makes you anxious, you can fill out our brief online contact form or start a live chat with us to let us know that you want to speak with us.
