any representation that is available, so make sure to ask these inquiries prior to hiring a personal injury attorney.
First, trust your gut. Even though this isn’t an appropriate issue to be asked the gut, it can tell you a lot about what you must know. If you have a negative feeling or if you get rushed in meetings with a personal injury attorney it could be that they aren’t an appropriate attorney.
Always inquire about whether they are licensed in the same state in which your incident occurred. They are not legally or ethically able to represent you if they’re not licensed or licensed in another state.
Inquire if dealing with the case manager or the attorney who handles the process. Case managers are extremely knowledgeable however, they’re not able to provide legal advice. Discuss with your attorney whether they’re available to aid you in the entire process.
Find out how long it will take for messages and calls to be answered. You want to make sure you are on the same page as your attorney so if they say it could be several days, you’re ready.
