The very first and most important thing to know when you first sit down to speak with a Columbus wrongful death attorney is that the lawyer is on your side. At a time when it feels like the entire universe is working against you—and the insurance company for the negligent driver or other party that is responsible for taking the life of your loved one certainly is—the wrongful death lawyer only wants to use their time, resources and expertise in the law to help you.
You should also show up prepared to share as much about the fatal accident and its aftereffects as you can. The more a wrongful death attorney knows upfront, the more they will be able to tackle your case aggressively.
Here, we are talking about your first actual meeting. This is the one that comes after you connect with a lawyer online or by phone. That initial contact will be similar to setting an appointment with a doctor or dentist. You do not need to prepare much for that brief interaction, but you should be ready to give a general description of your potential case.
Whether you arrange to have the wrongful death attorney visit you, to go into the attorney’s office, or to conduct the first meeting online via Zoom or a similar app, show up with the following materials and information.
Arrive ready to ask more questions than you answer. When you talk to the lawyer handling your wrongful death case, never forget that they work for you. Do not hesitate to ask for definitions of unfamiliar terms, explanations of tactics and strategy, and, after you hire them, progress reports.
During your very first meeting, make sure to get satisfactory answers to the following five questions.
