If you’ve been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, such as in a traffic accident, a slip and fall caused by a negligent commercial property owner, an accident on the job site, or any other kind of accident, you’re going to need an experienced NYC personal injury attorney on your side. Meeting with an attorney can feel intimidating, but it shouldn’t, and knowing how to prepare and what to bring can help.

Bring Any Questions You Might Have

You’re meeting with a personal injury attorney (very likely for the first time), and you naturally have questions. This is completely natural, but because it's such a new experience and because the subject matter is so stressful, you're well-advised to write your questions down – so they don’t become lost in the shuffle. Two very common questions include:

Ultimately, you’re trying to provide the personal injury attorney with whom you’re meeting an overview of your accident – along with any corroborating evidence that’s available to you. In this way, you help ensure that your potential personal injury claim has the best shot possible.
