What should I know about my attorney?

When you have an injury from an accident that wasn't your fault, you may think you just want someone who will take care of all the legal issues and you don't really care who does it or how it gets done. But that kind of thinking can be risky.

When you hire a personal injury attorney to help you with your claim, you must put a lot of trust into that attorney. You must trust they'll take you seriously, they'll provide you with the advice you need. Most of all, you want to trust that they'll get the job done. So, when you are researching attorneys here are some questions to consider:

How long have you been practicing?

Personal injury claims, while common, have endless complications. A new attorney may know the law well, but without courtroom and negotiation experience they may not have the ability to maximize a claim. Ideally, knowing how much experience an attorney has can help you decide if they have the skills needed to handle your case.

How much will this cost?

In personal injury, most often attorneys operate on what is known as a contingency basis, and that is a benefit to you. Your attorney will not take a fee from you unless they achieve results. So, upfront, to pursue compensation, it should not cost you anything, provided you have chosen the right attorney.

What are my chances?

Every case is different and while that may seem trite, it is an absolute truth in personal injury cases. Similar injuries can often have huge differences in end results in terms of settlements or verdicts. Those variations can often come down to how the case is handled.

Why should I choose you?

Every attorney will answer this differently. However, if what you are looking for is ability to get the job done, you'll want an attorney with experience to pursue a claim and the compassion to treat you the way you deserve. Honest, hardworking personal injury attorneys will go the extra mile for you to make sure the court hears your voice.
