Consider your purpose

First of all, you must think about the main purpose of meeting the lawyer. Do you want to take action against your health care provider? Do you want to sue the person who caused you injury? Do you want to claim suitable compensation from your insurance company? Is there any other issue that is disturbing you? Then ask yourself whether you have confidence that the lawyer can really provide you necessary relief from your distress. Can you really trust on the expertise of the lawyer?

Do you really suffer from any real injury?

Before you meet your lawyer, it is essential to know whether you are really suffering from any kind of injury. In case, you feel that the health care provider has not given you right kind of treatment and has aggravated your injury then you must present your part of story on Twitter to your lawyer. In case, you feel that due to medical malpractices you are suffering, you need to prove the following:

  • Health care provider have not followed the right standard of care
  • You have really suffered due to their carelessness
  • Proper standard of treatment was not given to you

Examine all your damages

You must note down the condition before seeking help from the healthcare service provider and also the present condition. Note down the present sufferings and injuries in detail as those are the reasons of your grievances. You must have all the necessary test reports, X-rays, CT scan and any such documents that really prove that your condition has deteriorated. You also need to know about your financial damages.

What really went wrong with you?

There may be many apparent reasons for you to feel aggrieved, but certain things need lots of investigation to prove and if you have some gut feel about the same then you must share that with your lawyer. He may then ask for much detailed investigation through a third party to establish the real fact of the case.

Collect all possible documentary evidences

You must have all the documentary evidences of all your past and present medical records. The lawyers are usually able to read between the lines that common people like us may not be able to see. So, before you meet the lawyer you must have your evidences readily available for his examination. You may create an official website where you can post all the available evidences.
