One reason people avoid calling an attorney after a major wreck is because they think the lawyer will be pushy. They think that once they call an attorney’s office, they will be bombarded with phone calls and emails trying to push them to hire the lawyer. Guess what, with a lot of lawyers, they may be right. But NOT with Flattmann Law!
What’s the Process for Evaluating My Case?
The first step in evaluating whether we can help you with your car wreck case is an initial telephone call, usually lasting 5-10 minutes. During the call, you can tell us what happened, and we ask questions concerning the facts of the case. We may go over the police report, your injuries, and medical treatment.
During our initial phone call, if it looks like we will be able to assist you, we will then set an in-person meeting, typically at our office. If you have transportation issues or if your injuries do not allow you to travel, we will come to you. During our meeting, we will review any documents and evidence (photos, videos, etc.) you may have. During our meeting, we will answer any questions you and your family have concerning your case and how we will be handling it.
If we can take your case and you decide to hire us, we will review our contract with you prior to asking you to sign it. You will also receive a copy of the contract for your records. At the end of every meeting, our clients are encouraged to contact us with any additional questions, at any time during the course of their case.
What if I Need Time to Think About Hiring an Attorney?
We know that hiring the right attorney for a car wreck claim can be a tough decision. At Flattmann Law, we want to make sure that our clients feel 100% comfortable with their decision to hire us. In some larger cases, where we represent the same client for several years, it is important to have a good working relationship.
We encourage potential clients to do their research and if they need more time to decide, no problem! BUT, depending on the case, we will let that person know of any time sensitive items that need to be addressed as soon as possible.
