Personal Injury Lawyers in Virginia Beach – Interview Your Lawyer

Written by our personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach

After being hurt in a car accident, many people start looking for a personal injury lawyer. However, it can be hard to tell whether a certain car accident lawyer is the right fit for you. It can be helpful to ask the following questions when interviewing an injury lawyer:

Have you handled a case like mine before?
Some cases have unique facts and theories of liability. For example, what if you are in an accident with a truck that is being leased by a city? You need to make sure your truck accident lawyer has experience in how to preserve “black box” truck data as well as how to argue against any claim of sovereign immunity. If you are looking for a dog bite lawyer, you want to make sure the injury lawyer knows the law regarding the owner of the animal being put notice of the aggressive behavior.

If the case does not settle, when will it go to trial?
Local and competent personal injury lawyers should be familiar with the various court schedules in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth. An injury lawyer that cannot describe a timeline to you from beginning to end may not be a good fit.

Which lawyer or paralegal will I be dealing with?
While a victim of an accident might deal with a lawyer’s staff on a regular basis, the case is ultimately the car accident lawyer’s responsibility to handle. It is important to make sure that you can have a professional and direct relationship with your personal injury lawyer.

What is your fee?
Most personal injury lawyers, regardless of whether it is a car crash or premises liability case, will charge a contingency fee. This means that the law firm will not get paid unless you get a successful verdict or settlement. Make sure you completely understand the fee structure of your lawyer so that there are no hidden surprises at the end of the case.
