Questions To Ask Before Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer

If it's your first time dealing with attorneys and law firms, choosing the best personal injury attorney can be an extremely confusing process. Even so, the personal injury attorney you choose will have a direct impact on your settlement and the outcome of your case. As a result, it's up to you to choose the best personal injury attorney specific to your case. One way to achieve this goal is to ask the following questions. 

Are you the attorney who will actually handle my case? 

It's important for you to know the attorney that will be managing your case as well as your designated point of contact. In some instances, you may meet one attorney and never see them again. 

How much is your contingency fee? 

The majority of personal injury fee agreements are based on the contingency fee agreement, which explains that no legal fees will be collected unless money is won. If your case has legal merit, you should be able to easily find an attorney to represent you based on a contingency fee. The actual contingency fee is typically negotiable and can range from as low as 25% up to 40%. A good rule of thumb is the stronger your personal injury case, the more negotiable your contingency fee agreement will be. 

What's your experience with these types of personal injury cases? 

Simply put, not all personal injury cases are the same. As a result, you should find a lawyer with specific experience trying or handling your type of case. 

Am I responsible for the advanced case costs if we lose? 

Many attorneys will charge clients for costs advanced in addition to a contingency fee. These costs can be significant and will almost always be deducted from your share. If possible, find an attorney where you are not held liable for any advanced costs in the event you lose your case. 

How much is my case worth? 

Although this question may seem premature, your attorney should have an idea. It's a fact that the outcome can range based upon unknown medical issues, liability, discovery, and a long list of other factors. Your attorney, however, should be able to provide you with a spectrum of values and explain any mitigating factors to you.
