Finding the Right Attorney for Your Case
Although no one ever expects to sustain a life-altering injury in a motor vehicle accident, deciding to pursue legal action can leave you with many questions about whether an attorney is right for you. Making an informed decision in this process is crucial since working with the right attorney can help you obtain the most desired result.
When you schedule a consultation with a firm, make a list of questions you want to ask the team. Here are three to keep in mind:
What is Their Track Record?
While a firm may boast that they've handled over 1,000 cases, they may not have handled them successfully. In the pre-consultation phase, check their website for any case result or client testimonial pages to understand their track record.
You should also consider what kind of cases they typically take on. If you go onto a personal injury attorney's website and it mainly highlights medical malpractice, they may not be the right fit for your accident case.
Will I Be Working Hands-On With the Attorney?
It's not uncommon to schedule a consultation with a specific attorney only to find that a paralegal or case manager will be your main point of communication moving forward. If this is not the attorney-client relationship you are comfortable with, you may want to consider going to a smaller firm where you can have more hands-on representation.
How Much Will It Cost to Hire the Firm?
Understandably, you want to know how taking legal action is going to affect you financially. Because of how important this is, many personal injury attorneys provide free initial consultations to learn more about your case and then work on a contingency fee basis moving forward. This means that you won't have to pay the attorney unless you win.
