Questions to Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer

One of the most difficult things to deal with in the aftermath of an accident is seeking compensation from the responsible parties. After all, dealing with your injuries and property damage is hard enough, and the complex process of filing a claim can seem overwhelming.

For that reason, most potential plaintiffs in a personal injury case will elect to bring on an experienced attorney who can help them with their claims. But how do you know how to select a good lawyer for your case?

One way is to have a good sense of what you’re hoping to get out of your personal injury claim and the ways a specific attorney aligns with your goals. Read on to see some of the questions you should ask a Dallas personal injury lawyer.

What Questions Should You Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer?

The decision to hire an attorney, and which one if so, is a personal matter that should be made upon reflection and careful consideration.

Ideally, your lawyer should have extensive knowledge and experience in the area of personal injury law relevant to your accident. They should also be adept communicators—you have to develop or imagine yourself developing rapport with your personal injury attorney.

Since most personal injury lawyers nowadays work on a contingency basis, you should have the chance to go over your case with a prospective attorney and get the chance to ask them some questions before making a firm commitment.

Some of the questions you can a potential attorney can include:

  • What is your experience in dealing with claims similar to mine?
  • Do I have a case? What does your best-case outcome or scenario look like? What about worst?
  • How will you be compensated? What is your fee?
  • How much time do you envision devoting to my case? How long could the process take?
  • What is the real value of my case?
  • Do you have any past-client testimonials I may review?

The types of questions you to ask will inevitably change according to the nature of the accident, your injuries and other factors.

And while your attorney won’t be able to make any guarantees, their answers to some of the above can illuminate your decision to work with them for your personal injury claim or not.
