If you have been seriously injured in a Madison car accident, hiring a personal injury lawyer is a good idea, though choosing one can be overwhelming. How do you know if the attorney you're considering has the knowledge and experience to get you the insurance settlement you deserve?
We suggest that you take advantage of free consultations as a way to interview attorneys, which Hupy and Abraham, S.C. also offer.
5 Questions to Ask When Considering a Lawyer
1. Do you have experience with accident cases like mine?
Not all auto accident injury cases are the same. You want to make sure that your Madison car accident lawyer has had experience with car accident cases that are similar to yours. You should ask for case results and client testimonials.
2. When will my case be filed?
You want to be sure that the attorney has the time to make your case a priority. Some attorneys prefer to wait until just before the statute of limitations runs out before they file an injury claim; there is no reason for this delay. Your bills are piling up and you deserve a car accident lawyer who will help you now.
3. What is my case worth?
During your free consultation, you will discuss the details of your accident and injuries, and by the time you finish, the attorney should be able to give you an estimate of the value of your case.
4. Why should I hire you?
You are hiring a personal injury lawyer because you need money to cover the cost of your car accident. You want a lawyer who can get you the maximum recovery. It is ok to ask the lawyer why he thinks he can get you a better settlement than someone else.
5. How much do I have to pay?
Madison accident lawyers often work on a contingency fee basis. This means that, if you win your case, you pay the attorney a percentage of your settlement. If the lawyer doesn’t win your case, you pay no legal fees. Ask your attorney if you are responsible for any other costs, such as filing fees, copying fees, and out-of-pocket expenses.
Having the right answers may not be enough. It is important that you choose an attorney that you feel comfortable with.
