What To Know When Hiring An Accident Injury Attorney

What To Consider When Hiring An Accident Injury Attorney

If you’ve been injured in an accident that was not your fault , you may be entitled to compensation from those liable for your injuries. You should contact a personal injury attorney, and hire one that is right for you and your situation. You definitely want to consider the following prior to hiring an accident injury attorney:

What area of law does the attorney focus?

Most lawyers focus on a particular area of law and may not be competent or familiar with something they do not regularly practice. Personal Injury covers a spectrum of legal issues. Car accidents, assaults, premises liability, medical malpractice, birth injuries, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, products liability, boating accidents, and many more. It is critical to your case that you select an attorney that has handled many of the same types of cases as yours.  

Are you compatible with the attorney?

It is important that you be comfortable with and trust your lawyer. Find out if your attorney understands your situation before you hire him or her and whether they will do their best to resolve your case. Personalities do clash so it is best to get to know your attorney and their personality before retaining their services.

Is your accident injury attorney accessible?

Can you get ahold of your lawyer when you really need them? Do they have a competent legal support staff that can answer your questions when your attorney is not available? Will they keep you informed throughout the process? If you had difficulties speaking to someone before you made the appointment, you might have the same issues after you hire them.

What does the lawyer charge?

Does the accident injury attorney work on a contingency fee basis? If so what cost will you be responsible for in the end? What fee do they receive if the case settles? What percentage do they keep if they take your personal injury case to trial? Do they charge the same as other attorneys is your area?

Chances are you’re here because you or someone close to you has been hurt. Your life has been turned upside down. The “it’ll never happen to me” mentality gets thrown out the window- No pun intended.
