Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Washington D.C. Personal Injury Attorney

There are few things worse than being injured as a result of negligence, and if you’ve been injured due to another party’s negligence, you are most likely now seeking the legal assistance of a knowledgeable Washington D.C. personal injury lawyer who can effectively fight for the compensation you require. Continue reading to learn more about some of the questions you should ask before proceeding with an attorney.

Can the attorney answer your questions?

Rather obviously, the most important quality in an attorney is having a firm understanding of the law. While your attorney cannot promise you an outcome, your attorney should be able to honestly and straightforwardly answer your questions, assess whether you have a valid claim, and inform you of the strategy he will pursue in an effort to obtain the compensation you need to heal.

Does the attorney exclusively practice personal injury law?

While many attorneys practice various areas of law, with personal injury law being one of them, in most cases, you should instead seek out a law firm that exclusively practices personal injury law to handle your injury case. Our firm is solely dedicated to helping the wrongfully injured throughout Washington D.C., and we have been for years. Do not settle for a “jack of all trades” when you can have an attorney who focuses on the area you truly need.

Do you trust the attorney?

After leaving your initial consultation, you should feel better than when you first entered. Your attorney should give you a good feeling about your case, for if you cannot trust your attorney, you probably have a valid reason not to. Our firm will take the time to address your concerns, answer each of your questions, and ensure that you understand that your case is in good hands.

How is the attorney rated on Google?

If you’re considering hiring a mechanic, plumber, or even going to a restaurant, there is a very good chance that you will check their online ratings before proceeding, as few things can accurately report the quality of a business as well as real reviews from past clients can.
