Choosing Personal Injury Lawyers

More Information About Choosing A Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury lawyers are one of the most sought after legal professionals in the country and are definitely in high demand.  If you have been injured and you are thinking about retaining such an attorney, you need to make sure that it makes sense financially before getting one on your side.  Sometimes, the insurance deductible is so high that it is pointless in terms of the damages that can be assessed for your case.  However, if it can be determined that the severity of the case is great enough to demand high damages, then you obviously should consider retaining one.

Okay, so here are some things to consider if you are thinking about hiring a personal injury lawyer in Chicago or the surrounding Illinois area.  Let’s look at the questions that need to be answered:

  1. First and foremost, how serious is the injury that you sustained?
  2. Is the injury permanet or temporary in nature?
  3. How did this injury occur and who is at fault?
  4. Does this involve an uninsured motorist?
  5. Is there a third party who could pay damages for this injury?
  6. Are you in pain or suffering?
  7. Has the pain and suffering that you have experienced affected either your family or friends of both?
  8. Do you have a ball park estimate ofwhat your case may be worth?
  9. If your case involves a payment by an insurance company is there a cap on the torte claim that can be made for your injury?

These are the type of questions you need to answer in consultation with the prospective attorney that could take you case.  Not only should the lawyer be asking you these questions, they should be able to answer them as well. If not, then it would be advisable to seek other counsel.
