Once you've identified one or two personal injury attorneys to potentially hire, schedule initial consultations with each lawyer. This free meeting gives you the chance to tell the lawyer about your accident and to learn more about the lawyer and his or her skills.
Bring to the meeting a list of questions you'd like to ask the lawyer, as well as some writing material so you can take notes. Questions should focus on factors that will help you decide whether to hire the attorney.
Sample questions include:
- Where did you attend law school and how long have you practiced law?
- Do you only practice personal injury law, or do you represent other types of clients, too?
