Preparing for Your First Meeting With a New York Construction Lawyer

How You Can Prepare for Your Initial Meeting With a New York Construction Attorney

You’ve never been in trouble with the law. You’ve never had so much as a car accident. Accordingly, you may have never had reason to visit a New York lawyer before, and you may not know what to expect. While your first meeting with a New York construction attorney is important—and we will provide you with tips to make the most of your first meeting—our lawyers want you to remember one thing above all else. Specifically, we want you to know that you don’t have to worry about your first meeting. If you forget information, or if you have additional questions after the meeting, you can always contact a New York construction lawyer again.

Three Things to Do Before Your First Meeting

As you prepare for your first meeting with a lawyer to discuss your construction accident injury, we encourage you to prepare to:

  1. Tell us all about your accident. We want to know everything that happened to you. We want to know what you noticed at the scene of the accident, who was there, what was said, and how you were hurt.
  2. Tell us all about your injuries. We want to know what the doctors have told you about your current diagnosis, about your treatment, and about your prognosis.
  3. Ask us all of your questions. We want to answer all of your questions so that you know what happens next and so that you are not left wondering anything about your possible case.

Of course, if you have a case and decide to hire our lawyers, then our work together will last much longer than the duration of one meeting—and we hope that you will feel comfortable with us and openly share information throughout the time that we work together.
