Important Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injuries are one of the most common reasons that people call lawyers. According to the CDC, more than 1 million Americans suffer a slip or fall injury each year, with 17,000 deaths annually. If you're looking for a personal injury lawyer, here are some important questions you should ask before you make a decision.


Do You Have Experience?

You always want to make sure you're hiring an attorney who has experience dealing with a wide range of cases. Before you choose an attorney for your personal injury case, make sure they have plenty of experience.


Have You Dealt With Similar Cases?

Personal injury cases can vary quite a bit, so your case may be different from previous cases your lawyer has dealt with. Before you hire a lawyer, ask them about the cases they've dealt with before and how that previous experience can help you win your case.


What Fees Do You Charge?

Hiring a personal injury lawyer can be a major investment, so you should know what you're getting yourself into before you hire anybody. Ask your lawyer about their fee structure, payment options, and how long you have to pay before you hire them.


Do I Pay If I Lose?

Some lawyers may take your case on contingency, which means you don't have to pay if you lose your case. Before you hire a lawyer, you should take the time to figure out if they work on contingency or if you'll have to pay a bill if you lose your case.


Do You Have References?

Whenever you're hiring a professional, you should ask them for references from other professionals in their field as well as clients they've dealt with. Your lawyer should be able to tell you about some of the clients they've dealt with as well as the lawyers and law offices they may have an affiliation with. References aren't a deal-breaker, but they can help you decide between two competing lawyers.


Hiring a lawyer is one of the best things you can do if you recently suffered an injury that somebody else may be liable for. Workplace injuries and injuries on other people's property can lead to compensation. If you want to hire a personal injury lawyer, contact Lloyd Law Office for a consultation.
