If you are need of an injury attorney for a car crash accident in the Crystal Lake area, there are a number of things to consider.
Finding the right personal injury lawyer by just opening the phone book gives you a confusing list of lawyers and law firms all claiming to be the best. One way to find a good lawyer is through the referrals of family, friends, and colleagues. However, make sure that their lawyer is qualified for personal injury cases, as lawyers often handle a variety of legal issues and don’t just limit themselves to one type of legal matter. After scheduling a free consultation with a lawyer, ask some of the following questions:
How many personal injury claims have you settled successfully?
Do you accept injury cases on a contingency basis?
Do they typically represent accident victims or the insurance companies?
What experience do you have as a trial attorney?
Will you be handling my case personally? Or will an associate or junior associate handle my case?
