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 it deserves.
- Do you have any references or recognitions?
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.
