10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Posted on in Personal Injury

Those who have been injured due to neglectful behavior on the part of another person may need to hire a personal injury lawyer. Hiring the right personal injury lawyer is necessary to ensure your rights are protected. However, before you hire any attorney, make sure you get answers to some critical questions such as:

  • What parts of personal injury law do you consider your specialty?
  • When was the last time you handled a case similar to mine and what was the outcome?
  • Who in your office will be working on my case?
  • On average, how long do these types of cases take to be resolved?
  • Does your office accept cases on a contingency basis or do I have to provide a retainer?
  • How often can I expect to hear about the progress of my case?
  • What information will you need from me to help with my case?
  • Regarding settlements: If I'm happy with a settlement will you accept it even if you think we could do better in court? If I'm not happy with a settlement and you feel it's best to settle what happens?
  • If you are out of the office sick or on vacation who in your office will be available for my questions?
  • Does your office have the time necessary to devote to my case?

Hiring a personal injury attorney to handle your case means you have to be comfortable with the answers to these important questions. The more information you have from the attorney beforehand, the better decision you can make. Finding the right personal injury lawyer doesn't have to be complicated, you just have to know the right questions to ask.
