You’ve just been through a traumatic experience and are exhausted from dealing with doctors, hospitals, insurance companies and your own personal feelings about your recent injury. You still need to keep a clear head so you can find the right personal injury lawyer to represent you.
Here are some key questions to ask your prospective attorney to see if he is qualified to handle your case:
Area of Expertise
• Are you a generalist or do you specialize in personal injury cases?
• How many personal injury cases have you successfully taken to trial?
• Can I get a reference from one of your past clients?
• Will you be personally handling my case?
These questions are aimed at finding out if you will get an experienced personal injury attorney. Most cases settle outside of court, but there is a chance you may have to go to trial. If you think this is likely, be sure to find out if the lawyer is prepared and ready to take your case to trial.
