What Your Lawyer Wants to Know After an Accident in Durham
Helping Victims Recover Compensation after a Car Accident
It is important to carefully consider your legal counsel and not just hire the first attorney you meet. Understanding how that lawyer thinks, feels, and acts is an important part of the personal injury process. How you feel about your attorney is also an important part of the puzzle.
Understanding what your lawyer will want to know before you meet him or her will make the discussion flow smoothly and will help you both be more prepared to discuss your claim. At Wallace Pierce Law, our Durham attorneys always put our clients’ needs first. With our personalized attention to each case, you won’t receive the typical attorney-client relationship.
Questions to Consider
The following is a list of items that you should gather or have answers to before you go meet with a personal injury lawyer. This list is not meant to be exhaustive but will give you a general idea of what your personal injury lawyer will be looking for in order to assist you with your claim.
- Who was involved in the incident?
- When did the incident happen?
- Where did the incident happen?
- How did the incident happen?

Consider the answer to each of these questions before meeting with an attorney. These questions provide the initial details which will help an attorney evaluate your North Carolina personal injury claim. The discussion of each question should also make you consider whether the lawyer you’re meeting is the best lawyer for your personal injury claim.
