Your first consultation at Legate & Associates is free. You meet with a lawyer who will hear about your case. At your first meeting, be prepared to answer questions regarding how you were injured, who was involved, when it happened and what your injuries were. Other important information to discuss will be how your life has changed since your injuries were sustained including the effect on your work, leisure, family and community life. Your responses will assist the lawyer in determining if you can demonstrate someone else was at fault for your injuries, and if you still have time to sue.
The lawyer will then be able to give you a preliminary idea of whether you have a case and its potential value. It is important that you bring as much information to your first visit as you can; be sure to ask for a list of materials you should bring for your meeting when you book your appointment. Finally, at your initial consultation, you should have a clear and frank discussion about costs and legal fees moving forward.
