13 Key Questions to Ask When Hiring An Attorney

During civil litigation, it is important that you find an attorney suited to your case with a successful track record at trial (even if you do not desire to go to trial).

When you’re meeting with attorneys, there are some important questions to ask them.

  1. Do you have any areas of specialty?
  2. Do you have any experience regarding my type of injury/damages?
  3. Do you go to trial?
  4. How often do you go to trial?
  5. What are your results at trial?

While conducting your own research, there are also key questions to answer yourself.

  1. How long has the attorney been in business?
  2. Does the attorney’s office reflect the trappings of success?
  3. How much work will the law office be able to put into my case?
  4. How large is the support staff?
  5. What will be the division of labor between attorney and paralegals/legal assistants?
  6. How many files does the attorney have in litigation?
  7. Did the attorney take the time to answer all of my questions?
  8. Is the attorney asking me to advance any costs out of my own pocket? (Red Flag)

3 Tips About Your Doctor Visits During a Personal Injury Lawsuit

During the civil litigation process, the opposing counsel will use a variety of tactics to undermine your case. One of those tactics involves using your doctor, and your treatment, against you.

Here are a few tips that your lawyer will want you to know.

  1. Follow your treating doctor’s advice, even if it involves something as minor as bedrest. If you don’t listen to your doctors, you will be providing the defense counsel with the ammunition to say you “failed to mitigate your damages.” Basically, the defense attorney will argue that the defendant shouldn’t have to pay for injuries that you made worse by failing to accept treatment.
  2. Never discuss litigation with your treating doctor. It’s highly likely that anything you say to your doctors will end up in their notes and medical records, which the defense counsel can scrutinize and use against you.
  3. Find a good doctor who can both treat you and testify for you as a medical expert. Don’t assume that every doctor has the ability or desire to participate in a lawsuit. The last thing you need is a doctor unwilling to stand his/her ground against a forceful defense attorney.
