Questions to Ask Your Lawyer During the Vetting Process

Struggling financially because of someone else’s mistakes is difficult and painful, which is why you may be thinking about pursuing compensation through a personal injury claim. To do so effectively, you’ll need legal representation that is compatible with your case. Making an informed decision will drastically increase the chances of a positive outcome. 

A reputable injury lawyer will help you deal with your case’s legal intricacies. Their objective is to protect your rights to a fair settlement, and they won’t back down while negotiating with insurance adjusters. 

It can be overwhelming to understand how to walk through your path to compensation, but you can start by asking Conway, Pauley & Johnson P.C. some key questions during the vetting process. 

What Experience Do You Have Handling Cases like Mine?

This should be your first and most important question, as having an understanding of the attorney’s awareness and experience about all the elements that could impact your injury case is fundamental if you want to make the right choice. 

For example, if you were injured in a car accident, you’ll want to ask questions about car accident cases they’ve dealt with in the past. You also don’t want to rely on a lawyer who’s only taken other types of cases or only deals in criminal defense law, for example.

How Will You Communicate with Me During This Process?

Stable and effective communication is the key to all relationships, including professional ones. To build a strong claim, you want to make sure you and your personal injury attorney are always on the same page, and there’s no better moment than during initial consultations to establish how you want to be updated about your claim. 

Your attorney must be a good fit for all your preferences. Make sure to clarify if you prefer in-person meetings, phone calls, or emails, and how often you want to be contacted about possible changes. Keep in mind that frequent communication is often required when you’re receiving offers from the insurance company if you want to avoid getting lowballed. 

What Is My Case Worth?

The value of a personal injury case is determined by a significant amount of variable elements, usually summarized as economic and non-economic damages. While there’s no definitive answer to this question, as a claim’s value is something that changes from case to case, a good lawyer will gladly provide you with an estimate of your total compensation. 

What Is Your Fee Structure?

Many victims of negligence fail to obtain fair compensation as they’re afraid of speaking to a lawyer because of the cost. Don’t make the same mistake. Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means that you won’t have to pay their fees if they’re not successful in providing you with the settlement you need. 

It’s still important to ask this question, as the last thing you want is a misunderstanding about payment plans during a critical moment in your case. A reputable injury lawyer has no problems informing you of the percentage of the settlement that will be going to them to cover the assistance provided.
