QUESTIONS TO ASK A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER FIRST
June 18, 2016
If you will meet personal injury attorneys without doing your own homework, your meeting might prove to be a little intimidating. But always remember that all the attorneys are there to help you and to protect your rights as well as your interests. So just keep your head cool, say goodbye to any of your hesitation and conduct your own investigation before you decide upon hiring any specific Las Vegas personal injury attorney. There are few very important and imperative questions which should be asked to any lawyer who claims to be dealing with personal injury cases.
How many personal injury cases do you handle on an average?
Many of you might be thinking that what this question’s significance is. In fact, let me make it very clear that most of the lawyers who claim that they are handling personal injury cases are exactly not handling these cases by themselves and when any such cases arrives in their office, they refer it to some other lawyer. So whenever you get an appointment with your advocate, ask this question and make it clear that is he going to handle your case by himself or is he planning to refer it to someone else?
How strong my case is?
Any qualified and experienced legal professional will take a close look at your case, analyze it thoroughly and will let you know that how strong your case is. Is it worth filing a lawsuit against the offender? Will it bring appropriate amount of compensation for you.
How much approximate time will you take in resolving a case like mine?
Every personal injury lawyer in Southern Nevada like Las Vegas or Henderson has got his own style of dealing with cases. Some of them work very fast while others work in a slow speed. However it is not necessary that those working fast will always prove to be better solicitors. In fact, holding out longer on a case indicates more chances of getting better and appropriate compensatory amount. But the second option works only when your legal professional works regularly on your case. That’s why you should know the approximate time that will be required for resolving your case.
Do you charge any sort of hidden costs other than your regular fee?
This question is also very important as everything about the payment’s terms and conditions need to be clarified before you hire injury lawyers in Los Angeles. Ask your advocates that what is their procedure of charging fee? If they are charging the payment on contingency basis the exact percentage should be known by you so that no issues arise later. In general, this contingency fee percentage is 33 percent and 50 percent.
