Five Questions to Ask When Choosing Personal Injury Lawyer

Posted on Thursday, February 11th, 2016 at 2:00 pm    

Going through the process of choosing a personal injury lawyer can sound overwhelming, especially when you or a loved one has just been seriously injured.

However, selecting a lawyer as quickly as possible after an accident is very important because in many situations, there are very strict timelines to adhere to in order to preserve legal rights–otherwise, you may lose all of your rights to claim compensation.

To make the process quick and easy for you, we’ve put together a list of five important questions to ask the personal injury lawyers you’re considering.

Do I pay upfront?

Choose a personal injury lawyer that handles cases on a contingency fee basis. This way you don’t pay any legal fees until your case has been won or settled so that you can focus on your injury recovery.

How much information will you share with me?

You want a personal injury lawyer that is transparent and will keep you informed about the litigation process and overall strategy for winning.

Do you service my local area?

The best personal injury lawyer for you is one that operates in your local area. This way you can be sure they have all the right contacts and connections needed for your case.

Why should I choose you?

You want a firm that focuses specifically on personal injury cases so that you know they have the right experience and expertise.

What do past clients say about you?

A reputable personal injury lawyer will be able to provide you with testimonials and references from past clients.
