What Will Happen During the Initial Consultation?
The smartest step you can take after a serious injury or wrongful death in the family is to consult an attorney as soon as possible. Time is of the essence because there are deadlines for filing tort lawsuits in California, and important evidence might be altered or destroyed if too much time passes from your injury to the investigation. During your initial consultation, one of our Milpitas personal injury lawyers will assess your situation to determine if you have grounds for a claim and how to approach the investigation. Here are just a few questions you might be asked:
- Did the police attend the scene? Did they make any arrests or perform chemical tests?
- Did anyone witness the incident? Did you record their contact details?
- Has the insurance company contacted you yet? Have they offered a settlement? Have you made any recorded statements or sent any emails to the insurer?
- What were you doing just before your injuries occurred?
- Do you have any reason to believe the opposing party will argue that you were partially at fault for the accident?
- Did emergency medical services attend to you at the scene?
- Have you undergone a medical evaluation? What was your prognosis?
- Are you currently employed? Have you missed any work due to your injuries?
- What types of insurance do you carry?
- Have you posted anything on social media about your accident, injuries, or recovery?
- How have your injuries affected your well being and your relationships with loved ones?

Some insurance companies use set formulas and computer programs to determine their settlement offers. Unfortunately, these formulas do not always account for a victim's total economic and non-economic damages. If you want to make sure the insurance company treats you fairly, turn to Harris Personal Injury Lawyers. We will aggressively represent your interests through settlement negotiations and any litigation that may follow. Your initial consultation is free, and you won’t owe any attorneys’ fees unless you win compensation. For a case evaluation, send us a message online or call our office at 1-800-GO-HARRIS.
