Four Questions You Should Ask Your Wrongful Death Lawyer
Hiring an accidental death lawyer is one of the hardest things you will ever do. This action follows the death of a loved one. Worse, there is a good chance that this death could have been prevented. When you are visiting the professional for a consultation, you should ask four questions to feel more comfortable with the experience and to know that you are in good hands. Do you know what these questions are?
- What is your experience with accidental death cases? Work with a professional who has counseled clients, settled with insurers and litigated cases in this field before. You do not want a beginner fresh out of law school to handle this type of case.
- What have your results been? You are looking for a record of accomplishments. Work with a professional who has a history of reaching satisfactory settlements or litigating successfully in front of a jury.
- Who will handle my case? Some law firms direct the workload to paralegals, interning law clerks and newcomers to the profession. You want to know that the attorney with the great track record handles your file personally.
- How involved will I be in the case? You would not be the first client who imagines being an active member of the team handling the negotiations. When this does not happen, and it rarely ever does, it is easy to get frustrated. Know ahead of time what your role in the case will be.
