Questions to Ask Your Car Accident Attorney

You probably don’t hope to ever be good at dealing with car accidents. That would mean you’ve been involved in a lot of them, and no one wants that. That also means that on the rare occasion you are in a vehicle collision, you’re going to have some questions. 

Attorneys at our firm deal with auto wreck issues on a regular basis, though, because they help with car accident cases every day. They can help you to get your questions answered, but first, you have to know what to ask. 

If you are just starting to think about calling a lawyer about your crash, now’s the time to make a list of questions to ask your attorney during that initial, free case review. Here are some questions that our firm frequently receives to start you off.

Top Questions to Ask Your Vehicle Crash Lawyer

How is fault determined?

In general, fault can be determined by investigating your accident. The process of investigation leads to finding out what happened and determining who was responsible. Your attorney can even help you investigate your car crash.

What types of evidence can prove my vehicle crash case?

This is an important question, because you should start gathering evidence as soon as you can. Witness statements are vital to a vehicle crash, if available. You will need the vehicle crash report, as well. If photo and video evidence is available, that is extremely helpful.

Can more than one person be responsible for an auto wreck?

It’s common for more than one person to have some responsibility for causing an accident. You might be worried that you can’t file a car crash claim because you think you were partially to blame for the collision. As long as you weren’t mostly to blame for the accident, you can still file a claim against the other involved party for the role they played in the crash.

How will I pay for my attorney’s services?

Your vehicle crash attorney at our firm can work out a contingency fee arrangement with you. They will work on your case with the agreement that you pay them with part of the settlement. If you don’t win your case, you don’t pay for the attorney’s services.

Will I have to go to court for my car crash case?

Most of the time, you will not need to go to court to win a car accident settlement. Your attorney can submit your auto injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurer can agree to pay you a settlement. Court is always an option, but it’s not typically necessary.
