Questions to Ask Your Personal Injury Attorney

Before hiring a personal injury attorney, you need to feel fully assured that he or she is up to the task of handling your case. It will probably be best to interview two or more lawyers before making your final decision. Do not be afraid to ask questions or be assertive about what you want. A few questions you may want to ask before hiring a lawyer include:

  • Have you handled this specific kind of personal injury case before?
  • How long have you been practicing personal injury law?
  • Will you be in touch if I have any concerns about my claim?
  • Have you been successful both in trial and in settlement negotiations?
  • What kind of research and legal resources do you have at your disposal?

A committed attorney should be willing to meet with you and discuss any questions or concerns you may have. Remember, open communication between a lawyer and his or her client is an important part of successfully pursuing a claim.
