Before You Hire: Questions to Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer

Posted on

After an accident, you need a lot of help from a variety of places. You need qualified health care professionals to assist you with your physical recovery. You need support from family. You need cooperation and understanding from your employer while you’re recuperating and unable to work. You might even need accommodation from your creditors as bills and expenses pile up.

It goes without saying that juggling all these people and tasks can be incredibly overwhelming – especially when you’re injured. Fortunately, this is where an experienced personal injury lawyer can help protect your legal rights. Choosing a personal injury lawyer is one of the most important decisions you will make for your claim.

So how do you know if a lawyer is the right fit for you? Here are several questions to ask when speaking to an attorney about your claim.

What Areas of Law Do You Practice?

Many lawyers practice in a broad range of areas. Although there are plenty of competent attorneys with diverse practices, personal injury is a rigorous area that demands the skill and experience of a seasoned litigator. At Samster, Konkel & Safran, personal injury law is what we do. Our attorneys are trial lawyers who regularly handle complex cases with millions of dollars on the line. One of our attorneys even co-wrote a book on personal injuries.

Have You Handled a Claim Like Mine Before?

Every claim and injury is unique, but many share similar fact patterns. Your lawyer should be able to tell you how similar claims have been handled in your jurisdiction. Our lawyers handle all types of personal injury claims and have experience with everything from ATV accidents and workplace injuries to boating accidents and mesothelioma claims.

What Fees Will I Be Charged?

It’s important to get a clear understanding of your financial obligation right from the start. At Samster, Konkel & Safran you pay no fees unless we recover compensation on your behalf. We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality legal representation; that’s why we offer our clients contingency fee agreements. Our “no fee unless you win” policy ensures that our clients pay no fees out of pocket. If we are successful, our fee is covered by a percentage of the client’s settlement or verdict.
