When you meet with a car accident attorney for the first time, you are interviewing the attorney to handle your case and in many instances, the attorney is also interviewing you. As a result, the attorney will hopefully ask you numerous questions about you, your case, and what goals you have for your case. In return, it’s important for you to make sure that you are hiring the right attorney for your case. How do you know you are? By asking the right questions.
Below are some good questions you can ask your car accident attorney during your consult with them:
What areas of law do you practice?
If the attorney you are interviewing has a lot of practice areas, then the attorney may be a very capable and very smart attorney who has knowledge about many areas of the law. However, it might also be that the attorney dabbles in a variety of practice areas without focusing exclusively on one or two. You should know if the attorney practices personal injury law regularly and what kinds of cases they take on.
