Whether you have been injured from a car accident, slip, and fall, medical malpractice, or any other kind of personal injury, you may be considering how to pursue compensation.
In the best interest of our clients as well as our attorneys, at Pipas, we offer free case evaluations for prospective clients. In short, this gives our attorneys the opportunity to review a case with a client to go over whether they think they might be a good fit. It also acts as a preview, of sorts, for the client to determine whether they enjoy working with this specific lawyer.
So what does a free case evaluation look like exactly? Read on for more information!

How To Prepare For a Personal Injury Case Consultation
As a potential client, a free case consultation is a perfect opportunity to understand how your prospective attorney will work for you. You will learn how they communicate and how your partnership throughout your case will look. You can think of your case consultation as a chance to test the waters.
It’s important to remember that there are two sides to every relationship and since you expect your lawyer to be prepared and to keep up their side of the bargain, so should you.
You should be prepared with the following information:
- Details surrounding the accident (What was the cause, when did this occur, etc.)
- Details about your injuries
- Your insurance information
Any successful personal injury case begins with cooperation from both client and attorney and this begins as early as your first interaction. Come prepared with information about your case as well as any questions you have for the lawyer you will be meeting. You may potentially hire this individual to work on your case and you’ll want to feel comfortable making the decision to move forward or look elsewhere for legal advice.
Questions to ask your lawyer during a free case evaluation:
- How do you charge for your services?
- Do you have experience with cases like mine?
- What can I expect from our partnership on my case?
- What does good communication look like to you?
- Do you have any testimonials or client success stories I can review?
It’s important to keep in mind that a free case consultation is beneficial to you. It gives you the chance to better understand the road ahead. We urge you to take full advantage and ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable.
