The video starts with Justin from justinziegler.net saying that he will discuss 8 questions you should ask your professional injury attorney before giving them the job.
The first question to ask a personal injury attorney is if they’re licensed in the state where the accident took place.
The second question to ask is if you will be dealing with the case manager or attorney. While some clients don’t mind dealing with either, a case manager isn’t eligible to give legal advice. The third question to ask is when you can expect them to respond to your emails and phone calls. This will ensure that you are both on the same page.
The fourth question to ask is about their experience with personal injury claims. Personal injury lawyers get better with practice and experience. The fifth question to ask is whether you will receive emails, faxes, and letters sent to their office. This allows you to keep up with the progress of the case. The sixth question to ask is if you will be charged for copies of papers and long-distance phone calls. In today’s digital age, you generally shouldn’t be charged.
The seventh question to ask is if you will be charged a flat fee. Some states don’t allow attorneys to charge a fixed cost.
The last question to ask is if they are ready to sue. Some personal injury attorneys don’t sue.
By asking these questions, you will make the process a whole lot smoother for both you and the attorney.
