Questions to ask when hiring a lawyer

If you or a family member were injured as a result of negligence either by another person, a company or a business entity, by law you are entitled to seek full compensation for those injuries or harm done. That means hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you in court. However, not all personal injury attorneys are experts. It’s important to determine who has the ability to win your case before you hire them to handle it.

Here’s a short list of qualifications you will want know about your personal injury attorney when screening them:

  • They have a strong success record and long history.
  • They have confidence in the contingency fee model and base their extensive experience handling cases on a “no-win, no-fee” basis.
  • They are prepared to take on any opponent, no matter how large or powerful.
  • They are selective in the cases they take and are committed to giving clients the attention they deserve.
  • One of the firm’s partners is assigned to be involved in every aspect of the case from start to finish.
  • They provide personal service and work cases from every angle in an effort to secure the best possible result available.
  • Understand the financial implications of an injury and fight for fair compensation and appropriate settlement that adequately covers the injury and future financial impact.
  • They are Board Certified in the state where they practice law.

Other lawyers are quick to settle, often because that’s the easiest way for them to move on to the next case. Don’t entrust your personal injury case to just anyone.
