Once you’ve scheduled your free consultation with one of our personal injury lawyers, here’s what you’ll need to prepare for it and what you can expect to get the most out of your time with one of our experts!

What Can I Expect During My Free Consultation?

Our goal at the Hammack Law Firm is to serve you and help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident. Whether you were injured at work and need to file a workers’ comp claim, or if you were in a car, truck, or motorcycle wreck and need to file a claim, our team of expert lawyers is here for you. During your consultation, we’ll ask you about the details of your accident, the injuries you sustained, and how those injuries have affected your daily life (Salary loss, pain, suffering, mental trauma, etc.).

At the end of your consultation, before a value is assigned to your case, our team obtains copies of your medical bills, pay stubs, direct deposit receipts, property repair bills, property replacement estimates, and other documents. These documents help us understand the value of your economic damages and help us determine what your next steps should be.

At the Hammack Law Firm, when we say free consultation, we mean FREE—no hidden fees or strings attached, and there’s NO pressure to choose our services. However, if you do decide to work with us, you can rest assured that our lawyers will fight aggressively on your behalf.

What Do I Need for My Consultation?

Records and Documents

We recommend gathering some essential documents beforehand to help you get the most out of your free consultation. This readily available information will help us provide you with an accurate evaluation of your claim. Depending on your circumstances, some documents you may want to have available include copies of: 

  • Police reports 
  • Witness statements
  • Medical reports
  • Doctor’s statements
  • Photographs of your accident
  • Pictures of any injuries sustained and
  • Insurance records

Come Ready To Ask Questions

If you have a specific question during your consultation, please don’t hesitate to ask! We know dealing with the aftermath of an accident—whether it be a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or a slip and fall—can be overwhelming. It’s natural to have concerns, so we do our best to address all your questions during your consultation.

Some examples of helpful questions to ask are:

  • How long have you been practicing law?
  • Have you handled cases similar to mine?
  • How long will it take to settle my claim?
  • How much will it cost for you to represent my claim?

If the thought of asking questions during your consultation makes you feel uncomfortable, try making a list!
