Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer
Today I want to talk to you about a few things you should ask a personal injury lawyer before you hire them. There’s a couple different things:
First, Is this your area of specialty?
Second, do you try cases all the way through to a jury?
Third, who’s going to handle my case?
So in the first, you want to make sure that this is all they specialize in – they don’t dabble in all sorts of different areas of law such as family law or divorce or criminal or any other areas of law. You want it to be just personal injury.
The next would be do they try cases – are they trial lawyers. It’s important to know that because some cases go all the way through to a jury even though there is a lot of risk involved.
And finally, the question of who’s going to handle my case – this is very important. You want an attorney to handle your case from start to finish. You don’t want to be treated like a number, you want to make sure you have access to your attorney and they can answer any questions that you have.
If you have any other questions, about what to ask an attorney before you hire them, please give me a call.
