Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney? 4 Questions You Should Ask, Groton, Connecticut

When someone else’s negligence causes an accident where you become injured, a personal injury attorney can calculate your losses, negotiate with insurers, and make sure you receive proper compensation. Because so much depends on who you select, schedule consultations with several law firms before choosing a legal representative. Here are a few questions to ask each expert.

4 FAQ When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

How Long Have You Been Practicing Law?

Personal injury law is highly complex, requiring in-depth expertise and a wealth of professional resources. Attorneys with several decades of experience will be familiar with every aspect of the process and have an established reputation for service in the community.

Have You Handled Similar Cases in the Past?

personal injury attorneyThe more specific experience an attorney has, the higher quality of service they can provide. For instance, if you’ve been hurt in a commercial trucking accident, look for an attorney who has recently pursued a similar claim with successful results for the client.

Will You Be the One Working on My Case?

At larger law firms, it’s not uncommon for cases to be assigned to junior attorneys or outsourced to another legal firm. If the person with whom you’re meeting isn’t the one who will be handling your affairs, ask to meet with the person who will.

Will I Have to Pay Any Costs Upfront?

Personal injury attorneys generally work on a contingency basis, meaning they take their fee out of your final award. However, some law firms will expect you to pay filing fees, copying costs, and other expenses upfront. Whoever you choose, understand their fee structure before signing an agreement.
