People are often concerned about what to expect if they call a lawyer. First and foremost, the lawyer should not be the first person/institution you contact. It's important to take care of your medical needs first. Once you do that, it's time to talk with an attorney because your doctor's prognosis will help to indicate the outcome of your case.
