What to Ask Before You Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

Securing a personal injury lawyer is a great first step toward securing compensation for an injury caused by someone else’s negligence. However, not all personal injury lawyers may not be as effective as clients believe. JZ helps’ video walks through the key questions to ask a personal injury lawyer before getting started.

It’s important to know if one is working with a paralegal or case manager or if they’re actually going to be working with the person they’ve hired. Some attorneys will have their paralegals working with their clients while the attorney handles the rest of the process. While this isn’t always bad, paralegals may know less, and some clients want to be able to work with the attorney directly moving forward.

Personal injury lawyers should be upfront about the process (especially if they have personal injury law experience, which is key), be transparent about how communication takes place and how long it takes them to respond, and about past results. Some attorneys aren’t transparent about this and won’t answer these questions in a straightforward manner. Those who don’t likely aren’t a good fit.

The more questions are asked, the easier it is to find the right personal injury lawyer fit. Of course, knowing which questions to ask is crucial. The guide above provides anyone with a solid personal injury case the direction they need to find the right personal injury lawyer for their needs.
