When you are injured in an accident, who you choose for representation will play an important role in the outcome of your settlement. Taking time to choose the right attorney is important for your comfort and confidence, and can help ensure your rights and interests are protected.
Questions for Your Personal Injury Lawyer
Before you hire an attorney, ask any questions you feel will be useful in making your decision. These can include:
- How long have you been in practice?
- How long have you handled personal injury claims?
- Who will handle my claim?
- What major victories have you secured?
- How long will my claim take?
- What is your complete fee structure?
These questions will allow you to gauge your potential attorney’s experience, resources, and successes. Be sure to obtain complete information about fee structures. Some contingency fees are negated through interest and additional costs tacked on by the law firm. Some firms will also pass cases to junior attorneys. Make sure the lawyer you consult with is the lawyer you will work with the entire time.
It is important to understand what you are accepting before you hire a lawyer to represent you. Take additional time if you need to and speak to as many attorneys as necessary to feel confident in your decision.
