When considering a personal injury lawsuit, you likely have many questions on your mind. It’s important to work with a firm that will take the time to answer your questions and will do so thoroughly so that you can move forward with an understanding of the process and a sense of ease.
Here are some of the most important questions to ask when meeting with a personal injury attorney:
Do I Have A Case?
This may be the number one question we get when meeting with new personal injury clients. Every case is unique and will require a thorough evaluation by our team. Once we can hear your version of the event and can review the available evidence, we will be able to provide you with an honest answer as to whether or not you have a feasible lawsuit that we can represent.
What Is My Case Worth?
It is difficult to provide an opinion without looking deeper into the details of your case. Be wary of attorneys who throw numbers around in the hopes of obtaining a client. It takes a careful and deliberate assessment of details to understand the full value of your case. After factoring in liability, factual details, pre-existing medical concerns, injuries, medical bills, and much more, we can give an honest opinion as to what your case may be worth. Remember, every case is unique and it is a careful assessment of those differences by an experienced attorney that can make a big difference.
What is the statute of limitations?
The statute of limitations is a deadline by which you must make a personal injury claim. If you don’t file suit to protect your claim or settle before that date, you lose your right to collect damages for the injuries you suffered. The statute of limitations varies by state and type of case so it is important you seek assistance and ask this question as soon as possible.
What Are Your Fees?
Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay a fee to the attorney unless you recover money damages through a settlement or at trial. At Fulmer Sill, our personal injury clients do not pay us anything until their damages are recovered.
If there are other questions you have, don’t be shy to ask. The law firm you work with should be willing and able to take the time to answer all of your questions.
