Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Motorcycla Accident Attorney

When you are seeking a personal injury lawyer, there are several questions you want to ask in order to make certain you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. There may be other questions you want to ask depending upon the scope of the accident and your injuries with some more important than others. The following questions are the most important ones you want to ask.

  1. -You want to find out firstly if the consultation is free. Even though you may choose to ask when you go for your first visit, it’s advisable to ask when you make the appointment so that you will know whether you are interested in doing business with that personal injury lawyer. If you forget to ask when you make the appointment, you can ask when you arrive at the appointment but make certain you ask when you first arrive at the office.

  2. -Another question you want to ask is what rights you may have that are in need of protection. If the personal injury lawyer you are interviewing is unable to answer that question based upon the information you have provided about your case you don’t want that attorney to represent you. Instead you want to find a personal injury lawyer that is more knowledgeable in the area of personal injury law.

  3. -You also need to find out who will be paying your medical bills and prescriptions as well as your lost wages, pain and suffering, domestic help and any additional expenses you may incur because of your injuries. You want to find out if the bills will be paid directly or if you will need to pay them initially and request reimbursement.

  4. -You will want to find out how the attorney plans to protect your rights and what forms and paperwork will need to be filed. In addition you want to ask if you will need to file the paperwork for your case or if the law firm will assist with that.

  5. -Since it will be necessary to send claim letters, you need to find out what insurance companies need notification if you or the law firm will take care of that. More often than not the law firm you choose will file any pertinent paperwork for you.

  6. This is just a sampling of the questions you may wish to ask at the personal injury lawyer you interview. Make sure you write down any other questions that come to mind before you arrive at your first appointment so that you don’t forget. The more questions you ask the better you will feel about the personal injury lawyer you choose. You can only find out how the lawyer litigates personal injury cases if you ask questions, so the more questions you ask, the more knowledgeable you will become about each personal injury lawyer you interview. Their answers will tell you how experienced they are in personal injury law and how efficient they are in personal injury litigation.
