Top Questions for Your Injury Lawyer

Below are some of the top questions you should ask an injury attorney, as well as information on why the question is important in the first place.

Do I have a claim for personal injury?

One of the first questions you will probably want to ask your lawyer is whether you have a claim at all. Not every accident qualifies for you to file a claim and receive compensation. 

Your accident must have been caused by someone else’s careless or negligent actions, and you must be able to prove the person’s negligence. If you can’t prove negligence, you likely don’t have a claim.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

Your case’s value depends on several factors. The amount of damages you suffered is one of the biggest determinants. Your damages must be added up to find out how much your claim is worth.

Is court necessary in a personal injury claim?

For the most part, court is not necessary to win an injury claim. Most injury claims are settled outside of court. 

How long will the claims process take?

Of course you want to know how long the process will take. You need to know when you’re going to receive a check so you can pay your medical bills and get your financial status back on track after the costs of your accident. Time frames vary greatly depending on the case, but your attorney will be able to give you an estimate of the time frame you’re looking at for your case.

Do I have to pay an attorney upfront?

The cost of your attorney’s services and how you will pay for them will likely be weighing heavily on your mind. Luckily, the injury attorneys at our firm will work out a contingency fee arrangement with you. You don’t pay your attorney up front. Instead, the fees come out of the settlement you receive after a successful case conclusion.
