How Will My Case Be Paid?
The first question you need to ask is who will be paying for the case? Most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, which means that we do not get paid unless we win your case for you. You do not likely want to hire an attorney who requires you to pay them out of pocket upfront or who will charge you even if they lose your case.
What Are the Chances of Winning/Settling My Case?
No attorney can give you a guarantee, but you do want an attorney that has a very good track record in the courts. The attorney's success rate is essential in determining how successful the attorneys are at winning/settling cases. The length of time they have been practicing and the number of cases they have settled are also a key factors. We have a 95% success rate and have handled upwards of 100,000 cases in our firms.
Do I Have to Pay for an Initial Consultation?
Most personal injury attorneys will start with a free, no-obligation, confidential consultation. You need this because you will need a chance to ask appropriate questions and determine if you have found the right attorney for your needs. You should never pay for this consultation.
How Easy is It to Get Ahold of My Attorney?
During your case, you will have questions that come up. You might worry about filing deadlines or preparation for court dates. You want an attorney who takes your call (or returns it quickly). You want an attorney who responds to your emails. There is nothing worse than having no idea what is going on with your case. This is not an issue you have to worry about with The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker because we keep you in the loop.
What is Their Vision for Your Case?
Once you have found an attorney that you think might be a good fit, it is time to ask them some specific questions about your case. Do they think they can settle it, or do they want to take it to court? What is their strategy? During a consultation, they will not likely have a complete idea but they should have a basic plan for you.
