Hiring a personal injury attorney can be intimidating, but it’s important to get the compensation you need to cover medical costs and lost wages. This video explains some of the most important questions to ask personal injury attorneys.
The first thing to do is ask your lawyer how they will charge you. Some lawyers charge per hour and others charge a flat rate.
They will also charge for different things. For example, some lawyers have you cover the expenses of printing, faxing, and copying, while others don’t.
Another thing to ask your attorney is if your case will go to trial. Most personal injury cases don’t even get to a lawsuit. They are settled directly with the insurance company beforehand. Going to trial is extremely expensive, so most attorneys will want to avoid this for your sake.
The next thing to ask is what your responsibility in the case is. You will need to make sure you are regularly seeing physicians to treat your injuries and also follow through on everything they tell you to do. If you don’t listen, they won’t write a favorable report for you and your chances of winning your case go down.
