Three Questions to Ask During Your Initial Consultation

by Staff Blogger | October 27th, 2016

Have you ever tried to drive a nail without a hammer? How about tighten a screw without a screwdriver? Having the right tool for the job is absolutely necessary for getting it done efficiently. That logic applies to personal injury law as well. In Roanoke, you have a number of law firms that can help you with your personal injury claim, but getting the right firm for your case is crucial to its success.

Here are 3 questions you should ask personal injury firms in Roanoke to determine whether or not they are the right firm to handle your case:

  1. Have you handled similar cases in the past? One important factor in choosing the right law firm is determining whether or not they have handled cases like yours. Just because they handle car accidents or motorcycle accidents doesn’t mean they have handled one with similar circumstances.
  2. What results have you gotten in similar cases? If they have handled similar cases, the next obvious question is what change of results did you get for those clients. That may be indicative of the result you would get if you go with their firm.
  3. How quickly can you settle my case? The right answer for this question is it depends on the insurance company. Be leery of any firm that says they will settle your claim in a set amount of time. Getting maximum results can sometimes require months of negotiating and even a trial. You want a firm that will go all the way, no matter how long it takes.
