The purpose of an initial meeting with a collision attorney after an accident is to determine whether or not there is a claim that an attorney can help with. The initial consultation is a time for both the accident victim and the attorney to evaluate the situation.
If you have been seriously injured in a car accident you need a personal injury attorney. You will probably miss some time from work. Even if you were not hurt badly you will probably miss a couple of days before you sort out issues like getting to the emergency room and a family doctor and getting transportation arranged.
