Seeking legal compensation for your injuries is a serious matter. Although there are plenty of personal injury attorneys available, selecting the right one for you and your case can be challenging. To help with the process, we have compiled a list of some common questions you should ask a personal injury law firm before hiring them.
Are You Familiar with My Type of Case?
The answer to this question is critical for the success of your case. Although there are many attorneys experienced in certain types of personal injury cases, such as auto accidents, your attorney should be experienced with your type of case specifically.
From motorcycle accidents to medical malpractice to slip-and-falls and more, there are numerous types of accidents that can result in personal injuries. Each type of accident tends to have different parties involved, different types of causes and different types of injuries. In fact, many involve completely different areas of law, such as maritime law for boating accidents.
At Farah & Farah, our personal injury attorneys are familiar with a wide variety of personal injury cases.
What is My Case Worth?
If your personal injury attorney is knowledgeable and competent, he or she should be able to provide you with some estimate of your case’s value. The attorney will need to take into account your injuries, the chances of proving liability and sources of available compensation.
How Hard Will You Fight for My Case?
Before you retain a personal injury attorney, you need to know how hard they will push for you to win your case. Will they put a limit on the output of time and expense to prove your case? Will they find the experts you need to prove liability? Will they take the case to trial?
At Farah & Farah, we will do what it takes to prove liability and damages for your case. This means finding the right experts, such as accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, economists, or the various other types of experts your case may need. It also means taking your case through tough litigation and all the way to trial, if necessary.
How Much Will It Cost Me?
The answer to this question should be simply “Nothing unless we win.” A personal injury attorney should be paid on a contingency basis, where they take a portion of your final compensation. All the costs should be advanced by the attorney as well. At Farah & Farah, these are our promises to you.
