If you think you may have a personal injury claim, you need to make sure the attorney who represents your case is a good match for you. Finding the right attorney is about more than just finding someone with the right qualifications at the right price, you want to find a legal representative who can advise you, fight for your rights, and see you through the other side with the best possible results.
In order to determine whether or not your potential attorney is the right person for your case, make sure you ask any potential personal injury lawyers the following questions:
1. What Cases Do You Typically Handle?
If you need help with a personal injury claim, you need to work with an attorney who handles personal injury cases on a regular basis. Even if your attorney is a phenomenal criminal defense attorney, that doesn’t mean he or she will do well with your personal injury case. If they only handle personal injury cases on the side, you might not be getting the attention or the knowledgeable experience you deserve.
2. How Would You Advise Me?
Before you get started, find out if you like the way your potential attorney would like to handle your case. Don’t hesitate to ask how they’d begin with your issue and find out what advise they’d like to start with. If you’ll be relying on their advice for the remainder of your case, you need to make sure the two of you are on the same page.
3. Who Will I Speak With If I Have a Question or Concern?
Not all firms provide you with the one-on-one personable attention you need. Before you decide to work with an attorney, find out if you’ll actually be discussing your concerns with them, or if you’ll be relegated to someone else, or worse, a voicemail machine. If they will be communicating with you directly, find out if they prefer email, phone calls, or in-person meetings. Does their answer sit well with you? If you’ll be working together for months to come, you need to make sure their answer is one you feel comfortable with.
4. How Will I Pay For Your Legal Services?
Talking about payments is always a bit awkward, but its infinitely better than being blindsided with a bill you can’t afford to pay. Instead, ask your attorney about how they take payment if you lose your case and if you win.
