Have you suffered an injury that has left you looking for a personal injury attorney? Before you sign a contract with a lawyer, make sure that you ask them these questions to help you better understand your case, what to expect, and your chances of winning.
Have You Won a Case Like This Before?
If you have already contacted a personal injury attorney, then you know their expertise is in in-jury suits. But how do you know if they are good at what they do? It never hurts to ask a lawyer if they have previous experience with your type of case. If they say that they do, then you know you are in good hands. If they say your case is new for them, then you may want to look to oth-er lawyers who have experience with your kind of case.
How Often Will You Be in Contact with Me About My Case?
You should start your relationship with a personal injury attorney with an understanding of the expectations. If your lawyer has all of your evidence and your paperwork, then they may need very little more from you and will likely only provide relevant updates. Other lawyers may re-quire more from you. Either way, asking this question will give you an idea of how involved you will need to be in the case.
How Long Do You Think This Will Take?
While the wheels of justice can turn notoriously slow at times, that doesn’t mean that your case will take years to finish. By asking your personal injury attorney how long they expect the case to take, you can start planning for your future. While this will only be an estimate, one with many different factors that could change at any moment, understanding the length of the pro-cess can help you prepare both financially and psychologically for the road ahead.
Do You Offer Free Case Evaluations?
A Case Evaluation is an opportunity for your personal injury attorney to look at your case and see if it is something they are interested in. If it isn’t, then the lawyer will tell you as much and will likely recommend you get a second opinion or seek other counsel. If the attorney is inter-ested, however, then you will each have a head start in preparing your case for the courtroom.
While many lawyers offer Case Evaluations, it never hurts to contact a personal injury attorney who is willing to offer this as a free service. That way, you know if your case is worth pursuing without taking a financial hit.
