You don’t need to know whether you have a case when you first contact a motorcycle accident lawyer, and you certainly don’t need to know the answers to your own questions. You aren’t scheduling an initial consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney to draft a demand letter or to file a complaint in court. Instead, the meeting is to learn about your legal rights and to decide what next steps you should take to protect those rights.
In order to make your initial consultation a productive meeting, you should know:
- The date the accident happened.
- The location of the crash.
- Which police force responded to the crash.
- Whether the police investigated the accident and filed a report.
- The name of the hospital or doctors that treated your injuries.
- Your initial diagnosis.
- What medical treatment you are currently receiving.
- The name of your insurance company.
- The names of anyone else involved in the crash.
- What happened just before the crash, during the crash, and after the crash.
However, if there are a few things that you don’t remember, then you shouldn’t let those things prevent you from scheduling a meeting. No case is perfect. Your attorney is seeking the information described above so that he can get a better idea of what happened in the crash, of who is liable for the crash, and of what your damages may be if you pursue legal action.
Accordingly, the information on this list will help you answer the attorney’s questions so that you can have an honest discussion about your rights and about whether pursuing a legal recovery is a good idea for you.
