Suffering an injury can be a very traumatic experience. One moment can completely alter the rest of your life, leaving you with a lifetime of pain and suffering that can keep you from working, disrupt your family life, and affect your day to day life from that moment on. Injuries you incur because of the negligence of another party, such as an auto accident, slip and fall injury, a defective product, animal attack, or one of many other types of accidents can leave you facing many challenges. To get the best result, you need an attorney on your side. To ensure that you hire a qualified lawyer, you should ask any potential injury lawyer a few important questions.
Know Their Experience
Ask any lawyer you may potentially hire about the experience they have handling cases like yours. An injury lawyer that has dealt with a case like yours before will have the experience necessary to negotiate with insurance companies or defense lawyers. Additionally, a lawyer with the needed experience will be able to use his knowledge of the law to ensure that you achieve a fair settlement.
Will the lawyer put up a fight?
You should also ask an injury lawyer you may potentially hire how far he will be willing to go in defending your rights. Is the injury lawyer willing to go to trial? Does he regularly litigate cases? Or, does the lawyer regularly take small settlement offers from insurance companies before even considering filing a lawsuit? Ask the lawyer about the number of cases he handles. Typically, a lawyer that handles a high number of cases will try to settle cases as quickly as possible. An injury lawyer that handles a modest number of cases will be able to give your case the attention it deserves.
Does the lawyer care?
Have a conversation with any lawyer you will potentially hire, and talk about your case. Try to assess whether the lawyer displays any concern for how it has affected you. An attorney that shows real care and interest in your well-being and medical needs will have the right characteristics to make you feel comfortable throughout a stressful and traumatic process.
Will the lawyer keep in touch with you?
Often times, lawyers will be extremely polite at the initial consultation. However, once you sign the contract, you never hear from them again. You will only hear from their secretaries or paralegals. If you hire a injury lawyer, you deserve to have direct contact with the injury lawyer. Your injury lawyer should be available to you at all times. He should be directly involved in your case. At The Law Office of Damon Alimouri, you will always be able to speak directly to your lawyer.
