Questions To Ask Your Car Accident Lawyer
If you have been involved in a car accident, you may have been left with serious injuries or your way of living has been greatly affected. It is important that you contact a car accident lawyer immediately and ask them the following questions before you get their services:
- What is your area of legal specialty? You want to ensure your chosen attorney has specialized skills which will help ensure a favorable outcome to your case. While there may be many attorneys who are competent enough to handle your auto accident personal injury case, in fact different attorneys specialize in different legal areas.
- Will you be the one handling my case personally? While junior attorneys and paralegals may be well-qualified to handle your case, you need to know up front who will actually handle your case.
- How will you charge for my case? Many car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you win. Attorneys who work on a contingency fee usually get paid a percentage (generally 20-40 percent) of your total settlement.
