3 Questions to Ask Your Personal Injury Attorney

Before hiring a personal injury lawyer, it is essential to determine if they are the right fit for you and your case. Below are four questions to consider asking potential personal injury attorneys to identify who is the best fit for your case:

How Many Years of Experience Do You Have in Personal Injury Law?

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, experience is one of the most critical factors to consider. An attorney with decades of experience handling cases like yours will know the ins and outs of Florida’s legal system and will be able to apply their skills and expertise to your case. 

Are There Any Factors That Make My Case Unique?

Every personal injury case has unique factors that may cause challenges during your claim. A dependable personal injury attorney should be able to point out these factors and explain the effect they will have on your case. Additionally, they should be able to admit when a case is too far outside of their experience and refer you to an attorney better suited to your needs. 

How Much Is My Case Worth?

While determining the exact value of a personal injury claim is a challenging task, your attorney should be able to give you a realistic range of what to expect. One significant factor that can maximize the value of your claim is your lawyer’s trial experience. If your lawyer has a proven track record of success in court, they will likely be prepared to seek the maximum compensation possible for your case. 


Ways an Experienced Personal Injury Attorney Can Help You After an Accident

After an accident, it may be tempting to try and negotiate with the insurance company on your own. Unfortunately, your adjuster may not have your best interests in mind. All too often, insurance companies try to offer accident victims the lowest amount of compensation possible for their injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney can use their knowledge and skills to help you reach a fair settlement for your accident-related losses. Some of the many ways they can help you include the following:

  • Conducting a thorough investigation into your case
  • Determining the total value of your claim
  • Building a strong case that establishes liability
  • Collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses
  • Filing all paperwork correctly and on time
  • Connecting you with resources to aid in your recovery
  • Keeping you informed through every step of your claim
  • Answering your legal questions

Through your claim, your lawyer may be able to help you collect damages for your injuries and lost wages as well as the pain and suffering caused by your accident.
