Meeting with an attorney for an initial consultation can be an intimidating endeavor. Your claim may be something that you’ve been handling on your own for a very long time now.

What should I bring to an initial consultation?
As the course of your case has gone on, you have probably compiled a pile of documents and medical records or perhaps you’ve kept a neat file folder regarding everything. Whether it’s a pile or a file, it is important that you bring as much documentation as you can to your initial meeting. The attorneys at Gerald D. Brody & Associates are familiar with the documents the workers’ compensation carrier inundates you with. These documents will help the reviewing attorney get a better idea of where your case has been and where the insurance carrier or the doctor may be trying to take it next.
Problems & Goals
It is important that you try to write down the problems that you are currently having with the workers’ compensation system so the reviewing attorney can adequately assess your rights and develop a plan of attack. At the Law Offices of Gerald D. Brody & Associates, it is important that we understand your goals regarding your workers’ compensation claim so that we may set out to tackle your objectives as soon as possible.
When you meet with an attorney for the first time, it can be an intimidating process. If you are someone who is shy or maybe forgetful, it’s always a good idea to have a list of talking points, problems and goals to address with the attorney.
We promise to provide to you a no cost initial consultation where we will analyze your claim and discuss any questions you have regarding the workers’ compensation process.
