The personal injury process may seem overwhelming, particularly for those who have never gone through it before.
One of the most important things for prospective clients to know is which questions they should ask a personal injury attorney.
Below, we discuss the most helpful questions to ask an attorney to ensure you hire the right one for your needs.
What to Ask a Personal Injury Attorney
There are several key questions to ask a personal injury attorney to ensure they are the right fit for you, including the following:
How much experience do you have handling my type of case? This question is important as it can give you a good frame of mind as to the likelihood that your case will succeed. Some personal injury attorneys are more skilled or experienced in certain areas of the law than others. Make sure you hire one who has past trial experience in your type of case.
Who will work on my case? It’s important for you to know whether your case will be handled by the firm’s partners or by another attorney on staff. This way, you know who to communicate with about case updates.
Do you operate on a contingency fee basis? Many personal injury firms, including DiPasquale Moore, operate on a contingency fee basis. This means you don’t owe your attorney anything unless they win money for you. Then, their earnings are deducted from the settlement or verdict.
Do you have trial experience? This is a key question that many do not think to ask. It’s vital that you work with an attorney who will not settle your case for less than it’s worth, and who is unafraid to represent you in trial. It could be the difference between a just settlement and a financial hole in the future.
