Meeting with your personal injury lawyer is a big deal, and you’ll likely be feeling nervous during your first sit-down. Because of how nervous you’re likely to be feeling, it may be a good idea to write down a few questions that you don’t want to forget to ask them.
This article will cover six main questions you should ask your personal injury lawyer. We’ll explain why these questions are so important and what you should do if your lawyer can’t answer them to your satisfaction.
We all want to get what we’re owed after suffering a wrongful injury, but only if the cost you’ll pay to a lawyer is worth what you’ll make in court. Therefore, you should always ask your personal injury lawyer for a quote of expected fees. You should also ask them if they have financing options and how they prefer to get paid.
2. How Much Experience Do You Have With Personal Injury Cases?
While staying within your budget is extremely important, hiring a personal injury law firm with ample experience is equally important. Ideally, you should find a lawyer experienced with litigation and trying cases in court, rather than just one or the other. While most personal injury cases get settled before ever having to go to court, you don’t want to get stuck with a law firm that doesn’t have any experience with the stress and back and forth of the courtroom.
At Roach & Bishop, we have a team of experienced attorneys skilled in both litigation and the courtroom. No matter which method is necessary to win your case, we have the experience to get it done.
3. How Much Time Can You Devote Solely to My Case?
It’s no secret that personal injury lawyers are some of the busiest professionals in the field of law. There are new cases that come through our doors every day. However, we never take on more than we can handle with professionalism and focus. When you choose Roach & Bishop as your personal injury lawyer, you get the guarantee that we’ll devote as much time as is necessary to win your case.
Another question you should be sure to ask your prospective law firm is how long your case will last and whether or not it will go to trial. After all, you likely want to put this dispute behind you and move on with your life.
Unfortunately, because of how different personal injury cases are, it’s tough to put a definite time estimate on how long your case will take. It all depends on whether or not the party at fault wishes to settle your case in a hurry or drag things out in the hopes that you drop your lawsuit. However, we’ll do our best to give you a precise time estimate and settle your case outside the courtroom for quick settlement.
5. Who Will be in Charge of My Case?
Roach & Bishop has a trio of skilled personal injury lawyers, including Patrick Roach, Brian Roach, and Jeremy J. Bishop. No matter who is in charge of your case, you’re sure to have a skilled professional at the helm.
6. What is My Role Throughout the Proceedings?
One of the most important questions you can ask your personal injury lawyer is what your role is throughout the proceedings. In most cases, your only role is to keep a low profile and answer the questions we advise you to answer. The last thing you want to do is make a negative spectacle of yourself and risk losing your case.
