Understanding Free Consultations: What They Are and Why You Need Them

In the aftermath of an accident, attorney fees should be the last thing on your mind. If you have suffered an injury, dealing with insurance carriers can be confusing and overwhelming. That is why Kimmel Carter offers free consultations to advise and counsel injured individuals and/or their family members.

What is a free legal consultation?

A free legal consultation is a meeting with a lawyer to discuss your legal issue. During a consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your potential case directly with a Kimmel Carter attorney. The purpose of the consultation is to evaluate your case, answer your questions, and provide guidance.

Kimmel Carter has offices conveniently located in Christiana, Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. We also accommodate consultations by telephone or video conferencing.

What should I bring to a consultation?

To make the most of your free consultation, it's essential to come prepared. Here are some things you should be prepared to provide your attorney:

  • Your medical records related to the injury

  • A list of witnesses to the injury or accident

  • Insurance information & a copy of your policy declaration page from your insurance company itemizing your insurance limits

  • Any corresponding documents you have received regarding your injury

  • A list of questions you have about the process

  • Driver Information Exchange Report provided by the police officer at the time of the incident

What will the lawyer ask me during a consultation?

During the consultation, the lawyer will ask you questions to better understand your case. These questions may include:

  • How and when did the injury occur?

  • What injuries did you sustain?

  • Have you reported the injury to your insurance carrier and/or employer?

  • Have you received medical treatment for the injury and if so, where?

  • Have you missed work due to the injury?

  • Do you have any pre-existing conditions or injuries?

It's important to answer these questions honestly and thoroughly. The more information you provide the attorney, the better we can evaluate your case and provide guidance.

What happens next?

After reviewing your case, the lawyer will provide an overview of your legal rights. We will explain the process and the benefits you may be entitled to receive. If we believe you can benefit from legal representation, we will explain what Kimmel Carter can do for your case.

What are my options after the consultation?

After the consultation, you will have a better understanding of your legal options. At the conclusion of our meeting, it is your decision whether to retain our firm. No fee is charged for the initial consultation, regardless of whether you choose to hire us as counsel.

If you have been injured in an accident, the attorneys at Kimmel, Carter, Roman, Peltz & O’Neill are here to help. Contact us today at 302-565-6100 for a free review of your case.
