If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident in Madison, you may want to file a Wisconsin injury claim. You know that you need a lawyer, but the number of lawyer ads on TV, the Yellow Pages and the Internet is overwhelming. How can you tell if a lawyer is right for you?
Most Wisconsin personal injury attorneys offer free consultations. These consultations are a great opportunity for you to interview lawyers at no charge.
First of all, you want to be comfortable with the lawyer you choose. You’ll be working together for a while, and you’ll have to share details about your injury and your life. It is important that you feel that you can trust the attorney that you choose. If you don’t feel comfortable with the lawyer, the answers to the following questions are insignificant.
- How long have you been representing Wisconsin slip and fall claims like mine? You want a lawyer who has several years of experience and expertise in Wisconsin premises liability law. This will ensure that your attorney follows the proper claim filing procedures, and has the experience necessary to deal with the insurance companies and the judicial system.
- How big is your law firm? You want to work with an established law firm with access to a variety of resources, including medical experts.
- How many people will deal with my case? Many firms will assign a legal team to help you with your case. Make sure you know who your main contact person will be and how often you can expect updates.
- How much will this cost? Many Wisconsin personal injury lawyers take cases on a contingency basis. This means that there are no upfront costs. The attorney is paid a percentage of your final settlement.
