3 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney, Ashland, Kentucky

If you want to sue a reckless or negligent party after getting hurt in an accident, choosing the right personal injury attorney to take the case is crucial. Those who live in a relatively developed area may have a dozen or more lawyers to choose from. As a result, narrowing down the options might seem overwhelming, but it is actually fairly easy. Just ask your top choices the following questions. 

What to Ask a Personal Injury Attorney During the Consultation 

1. Have You Handled Cases Similar to Mine?

Personal injury law includes cases that involve everything from medical malpractice to drunk driving accidents. Therefore, it’s important to make sure the firm you opt for has actually handled claims similar to yours. Otherwise, their legal team may not have the resources or strategies to prove liability or damages in your particular circumstances. 

2. How Much Will I Win?

personal injuryA reputable attorney will never promise to achieve a specific outcome for clients because legal proceedings are unpredictable; however, experienced lawyers should be able to estimate the total value of a claim based on the details of the case. If the attorney answers this question by guaranteeing a set dollar amount, look for someone else. If, on the other hand, the lawyer discusses all possible outcomes, you may have found someone who practices with integrity and is therefore worth hiring. 

3. How Can I Reach You if I Have Questions?

The best firms might have dozens of clients at any one time, but they will provide attentive counsel to each and every one. Look for an attorney who offers a direct means of contact and does not simply instruct you to reach out to a secretary every time an issue arises. The practice should also be willing to work around your schedule regarding appointments. And if you leave a voicemail or send an email, it should not take an unreasonable amount of time for someone to get back to you.
