Questions to ask a Personal Injury Lawyer:
How will you decide whether my case is work accepting?
Your lawyer will consider factors such as whether you have suffered an injury that someone else is responsible for, whether it will be possible to prove that responsibility, and whether you've suffered damages as a result of the injuries.
How do they charge?
Most lawyers bill by the hour - but personal injury lawyers are different. They mostly charge a contingency fee - which means they get paid only if they win your case. The average contingency fee is between 25% and 40% of the money eventually recovered. Lawyers will often take a higher fee for more complicated cases. It's rare for a client to be charged for expenses before the case is finished. Make sure you understand what costs you'll be responsible for before signing a contract.
What's the flukiest injury case you've seen?
The strangest case our clients have told us about is a home elevator company in the Dallas area that had a client wrongfully claim negligence on the part of the installer. The case was ultimately thrown out. Those rich people and their home elevators I tell ya!
