What to Ask Your Car Accident Attorney
When you sit down with a lawyer to discuss your Laredo car accident, here are some important questions to consider:
- Do the facts of the accident support a personal injury lawsuit? Each case has its own set of facts. The attorney will analyze the facts of your car accident and evaluate whether you have a valid claim. The attorney will look for evidence such as a police report or a witness statement to show that another driver’s error, misconduct or disregard for safety caused the accident and led to your injuries.
- How many cases similar to yours has the attorney handled? Ask the attorney about their experience and how many cases he or she has handled. You want an experienced attorney who has represented many individuals in accident cases likes yours and can provide guidance based on experience.
- What are the law firm’s case results? We are proud of our attorneys’ case settlements for clients. They show our hard work on behalf of clients. But be wary of any lawyer who promises certain results. Each accident case stands on its own merits and past results do not predict the outcome of future cases.
- Will the attorney take your case on a contingent fee basis? Our attorneys at Herrman & Herrman P.L.L.C., represent clients on a contingency fee basis. That means you have no upfront cost and only pay a legal fee if we obtain money for you. We understand that many families experience financial stress after a serious accident and do not have extra money to hire an attorney. A contingent fee arrangement makes it easier for victims of serious car accidents to have an experienced lawyer representing them.
