As an Ottawa personal injury lawyer I highly recommend that if possible you bring someone you to your initial meeting with your personal injury lawyer. The reason for this is that these initial free consultations are usually packed with questions and information that is vital to your case. Often times, when I meet with new clients, I will ask the person they have brought to write information down so that later on, they are able to go over the meeting and see what was discussed, what is need for next steps and a general review of the meeting.
When people are injured in an accident, often times they have so many things rushing through their minds and so many stresses that they can often sit in a meeting and miss valuable information. I will often send my clients home with their notes and tell them to digest all the information I have given them and then email me or call me with their questions. IT’s also good to discuss what you understood with a loved one who was also there to make sure you both heard and are of the same understanding.
That’s not to say that if you come in alone, we won’t take care of you. We can write down everything for you and make sure that you receive all the information you need. Our initial meetings are usually just a chance for you to share with us the details of your accident and your injuries and then let us give you information on how best to proceed to make sure you are well taken care of.
It’s important for you to know it’s our job as Ottawa personal injury lawyers to respond to any questions or concerns. That’s what we are here for.
I can honestly say that when our clients leave our meeting, they feel relieved. They have had so many questions and concerns answered and are finally able to breathe a little better knowing that they will be taken care of.
