If you suffer an injury due to another person’s negligence, you should hire a lawyer to represent you for a personal injury claim. Due to the complex nature of personal injury law, receiving compensation for injury and other losses after a serious accident is difficult without legal assistance. Fortunately, personal injury lawyers have the training and experience to pursue personal injury litigation. You should ask these important questions before hiring a personal injury lawyer to find the right fit for you. Keep reading to learn more.
What Area of Law Do You Practice?
There are multiple types of personal injury cases. You should hire a personal injury lawyer who has experience handling cases that are similar to yours. A lawyer who has dealt with your type of claim will know what kind of evidence to seek to develop your case and better understand how to value the case properly. For instance, there is a significant difference in how lawyers handle car accidents versus commercial truck accidents. The at-fault party is typically the other driver in a car accident case. In contrast, truck accidents involve multiple liable parties and are more complicated to investigate.
How Many Cases Have You Handled?
This is another question that helps determine how much legal experience your lawyer has. In addition to years of service, personal injury lawyers should have already handled several personal injury cases before you hire them. After all, a personal injury lawyer may have been in practice for years but has only had a few claims.
Have You Handled Cases Similar to Mine?
When hiring an injury lawyer, be sure to find out whether they have previously handled cases similar to yours and the outcome of those cases. Although each case is unique, experienced lawyers can easily find similarities between previous cases and your case. Asking potential lawyers this question gives you the confidence that your case is in safe hands.
How Much Do You Charge?
If you have sustained severe injuries in an accident, you may be unable to work and experience financial stress. The last thing you need is a legal bill on top of your medical bills. Ask any prospective lawyers if they work on a contingency fee basis. The majority of personal injury law firms handle cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning your attorney will cover the initial costs of your case. You won’t pay any money upfront to hire the lawyer. Instead, the lawyer gets paid a share of the settlement or court award if you win your case.
