The Centers for Disease for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates
that there will be more than 40
million emergency care visits in America each year. Not even accounting for nonemergency
medical treatment caused by accidents, the odds of you or someone you
love someday needing the counsel of a personal injury attorney are high.
Rather than scrambling one that day, should it ever come, to find the
right personal injury lawyer for your case, take the initiative and learn
the questions you should ask your lawyer and the hallmark signs of a good one now.
Questions that you should ask a personal injury lawyer you are thinking
of hiring include:
How much experience do you have with personal injury law and cases like mine?
There’s no substitute for extensive legal experience. Finding an
attorney or a law firm that has been around for a while clearly tells
you one thing: they are skills and knowledgeable enough to keep their
doors open and their clients happy.
How many cases do you handle at a time?
Be careful of law firms that completely overwhelm themselves by accepting
numerous cases at once. This is a pretty common downside to single-attorney
firms. If you can find an entire team of personal injury lawyers to help
you, it is more likely that your case will get the time and attention
Do you have any references or
Unbeknownst to many people who have never hired an attorney before, there
are actually quite a few prestigious and well-respected professional organizations
that rate and review lawyers to make finding the right one all the easier.
Super Lawyers®, Martindale-Hubbell®, and
Best Lawyers® are some of the top in the country, to only name a few. If your personal
injury attorney has been recognized by groups like these, you can be confident
that they can handle your case.
How much money have you actually won your clients?
Being friendly and compassionate are great qualities in an attorney, but
at the end of the day, you need to know if they are capable of winning
tough cases and collecting serious compensation for their clients.
