PHOENIX, Feb. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hastings & Hastings provides advice on getting the most out of a free consultation. Accident victims should arrive prepared with as much documentation as they can. This could include but may not be limited to medical records, expense receipts, police reports, insurance information, pay stubs, and any written correspondence with other parties involved in the accident.
During the consultation, accident victims will be asked to describe the circumstances of their accident. It is best to be clear and concise when describing the details. Accuracy is also key. Hastings & Hastings notes, the more information that can be provided, the better. This will allow the consulting attorney to better advise the accident victim on the best course of action to take.
At Hastings & Hastings, free consultations are not handled by paralegals, but by attorneys themselves. Hastings & Hastings further advises accident victims to avoid talking with insurance companies until they consult with an attorney. Victims should avoid make statements on the record at all costs. If they have any questions regarding their accident situation, the best time to bring it up is during the consultation.
"I have always believed that offering free legal consultations is an important part of being a respectable personal injury firm. Everyone should have access to legal guidance and representation follow an accident. It is one of the most traumatic experiences someone can go through. They need someone by their side, fighting for them," said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
