Picking a Personal Injury Lawyer: The Final Steps in the Process
5 – Interview each lawyer.
When you are meeting with an attorney whom you may hire to represent you, it’s a good idea to ask the lawyer some specific questions about him- or herself so that you are able to dig a little a deeper. If you are not sure what to ask, here are some questions that you may want to start with:
- What’s your experience with cases like mine?
- What’s your success rate?
- What are your fees and when are they due?
- Will you personally be handling my case or will one of your associates take it over at any point in the future?
- How often will I receive case updates? And how will I be contacted?
- Why are you a better choice than other attorneys I may be considering?
These questions can provide you with an important window into what you can expect in terms of service, responsiveness and your chances of success moving forward. With this info, you can better narrow down your list to a few final choices.
6 – Trust your instincts.
If you are still waffling between two (or a few) potential options at this point in picking a personal injury lawyer, then go with your gut instinct and pick the attorney with whom you are most at ease. The bottom line is that moving forward with a personal injury lawyer who you trust is crucial because you may end up working with this person for months – maybe even years – to come.
Depending on your case, you may have to share sensitive personal information; as your case proceeds, you want to be able to rely on the fact that the personal injury lawyer whom you’ve hired will always fight for your best interests and will be responsive to your needs and concerns.
If you are not getting a good feeling from a personal injury attorney during the initial consult, take this as a red flag, and consider your other options.
