Always Ask About Experience
There are many types of specialties lawyers can focus on. If you are looking to pursue a personal injury claim, you want to pair with a team that can give you focused personal injury representation and compensation after someone’s negligence hurt you.
Asking for examples of similar cases that have been successfully handled will give you a solid understanding of the experience your lawyer has in meeting your needs.
Inquire About Strategy
After you have discussed the details of your case, you should ask your lawyer to give you a general idea of what strategies they might have in mind to prove liability and ensure damages are awarded. A more detailed plan will be developed once you commit to moving forward, but this should give you a good idea of what steps need to be taken and if we can help you.
For example, in personal injury cases, there’s a good chance that you can avoid going to court. Having an attorney with extensive experience in negotiating with the at-fault party’s insurance increases your chances of reaching a fair and swift agreement.
If a suit needs to be filed, your lawyer can tackle the process and represent you in the courtroom. That minimizes the steps you need to take during this time. If you’re not sure, ask your lawyer and they can review their strategy for your case before you choose.
