Questions to ask Naples Law Firms before you decide who to hire

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, car accident or slip-and-fall accident, you likely understand the importance of contacting a personal injury attorney to help with your case.

Trying to navigate a complex legal landscape is never something you should attempt on your own, as you will be unlikely to receive the best possible settlement.

Below are just a few of the things you’ll want to ask the attorneys you speak with, before you decide which Naples law firm to hire.

How much experience do you have with cases like mine?

Different types of law firms tend to specialize in different types of cases. If you have been injured as a result of a slip-and-fall, you’ll want to make sure the attorney you hired has a lot of experience in helping clients obtain settlements for slip-and-fall cases.

If you’ve sustained a traumatic brain injury, you’ll want to make sure you hire an attorney who is experienced with this type of litigation. Again, this all comes down to hiring a lawyer who will be well positioned to get you the best possible settlement.

What percentage of your cases are personal injury cases?

Although some Naples law firms dedicate their full practice to personal injury cases, others may be more diverse. If you’re speaking with a firm that mostly focuses on real estate law, bankruptcy law or family law, and they only spend 20 percent of their time working on personal injury litigation, you may be better served by working with a different firm.

Do you work on continency?

Many personal injury attorneys will work on a contingency basis. In layman’s terms, this means the attorney will not bill you by the hour, starting on day one. Instead, they’ll agree to work in exchange for a percentage of your future settlement. If your case isn’t successful, and you don’t receive a settlement, you won’t need to pay your lawyer anything.

If you’re already struggling to pay your bills, you’ll want to hire a law firm that will take your case on contingency.
