How to Prepare for a Free Consultation with a Missouri Personal Injury Attorney

At The Gogel Law Firm, our St. Louis personal injury attorney provides free consultations to all Missouri residents injured in an accident, while at work, or by medical malpractice so they understand their legal rights and options and can make informed decisions about the direction of their claims.

We make appointments for free initial consultations by coordinating a date and time for the meeting — which can be in person, over the phone, or held via a video conferencing application like Zoom — that is convenient for our prospective clients.

Preparing for a free consultation with our law firm is crucial for gathering valuable information and making the most of the meeting.

Prepare for a Free Consultation

Here, we discuss some tips to help you prepare.

Be Honest and Open

During the consultation, be honest and open about all the details of the accident and your injuries. This information is crucial for the attorney to provide accurate advice and assess the strength of your case.

Bring Identification and Legal Documents

Bring a form of identification and any legal documents related to the accident, including the police report or any correspondence you’ve had with insurance companies.

Gather Information About the Accident

Collect all relevant information about the accident, including the date, time, and location. Note details about the accident, the parties involved, and any witnesses. Bring any accident reports, photographs, or other evidence you may have with you to the meeting.

Provide a Timeline

Create a timeline of events related to the accident, including when you sought medical attention, reported the incident, and any other relevant dates. This can help the attorney understand the progression of your case.

Compile Medical Records

Gather your medical records related to the injuries sustained in the accident. This includes hospital records, doctor’s notes, diagnostic test results, prescription information, and receipts for medical expenses.

Disclose any pre-existing medical conditions or injuries you had before the accident. This information is essential to evaluate how the accident may have exacerbated existing issues.

Document Damages

Keep records of any property damage resulting from the accident. This may include estimates for vehicle repairs, photos of the damaged property, and receipts for out-of-pocket expenses.

Collect Insurance Information

Bring documentation related to insurance coverage, including your auto insurance policy, health insurance, and information about the at-fault party’s insurance. Include policy numbers and any correspondence with insurance companies.

Prepare a List of Questions

Jot down any questions you may have for our law firm. This may include inquiries about their experience, the legal process, potential outcomes, and our fee structure.

Consider Your Goals

Think about your goals for pursuing a personal injury claim. Whether seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, or other damages, clearly understanding your objectives can help guide the discussion.
