CC_Law_Firm

Dealing with a personal injury due to someone else’s wrongdoing can be very difficult. From physical damages, mental stress, financial responsibilities and even the emotional burden that all come with this unfortunate incident, victims can often feel overwhelmed with how much they have to deal with.

At The Law Firm of Cohen & Cohen, we understand how important it is to have a lawyer there to help you every step of the way during this difficult time. Not just any lawyer, but the right one. And to find the right one, you’ve got to start asking the right kind of questions. Here are three essential questions to ask each candidate before ever making a decision to hire:

1. What are your practice areas?

This is an important question, as you’ll want to know which types of personal injury cases this attorney or firm has experience in. If the categories of practice areas are openly listed on their site or explained to you in detail over the phone, they are likely very experienced in representing these types of cases. If your case falls within those categories, you can feel confident knowing this lawyer/firm has represented others similar to yours.
 

2. If my case gets settled, how much money will you get vs. how much I’ll receive?

This is another essential question to ask prior to hiring a lawyer. If your lawyer is planning to get more than you do from your settlement, or if he/she plans to charge a fee even if the case doesn’t get settled, you definitely want to consider another lawyer. Your personal injury attorney should always have your best interest in mind when representing your case.
 

3. How do I know if you are a lawyer I can trust?

Although the answer to this will vary from attorney to attorney, the main characteristics of a trusted lawyer should include: experience, availability, transparency, dedication and active communication.
