These are the top three questions you need to ask a personal injury lawyer

Now that you are looking for an attorney to help you with your car accident or your personal injury claim, there are a couple things you need to know about the lawyer in Tampa or Clearwater you are interviewing. Asking these questions is an important step in understanding the capability and expertise of the lawyer in question, and if they will be able to help you and the best possible way. Below are the top three questions that you need to ask before hiring your personal injury attorney in Tampa, Clearwater or St Petersburg.

#1. What kind of experience do you have representing people with their personal injury claim?

This is the obvious first question you would ask a lawyer – what kind of experience they have representing their injured clients. It’s important for you to know that they have represented the plaintiff in a courtroom. You can follow up this question with “what percent of those cases have had a favorable outcome for your clients?”

Cory Baird of Baird Law Group in Tampa Florida has been the primary council for thousands of court cases in his nearly two decade long career. Cory experienced his own personal injury (a car crash) giving him the inspiration to want to help others during this uncertain time in their  lives.

#2 Will you personally be handling my case?

Why should this be a question? If you hire a lawyer in Tampa or Clearwater to represent you, won’t that lawyer be the person leading the case? Not so fast. Just because you’ve called one of these highly advertised lawyers does not mean that they will be the one representing you. In many cases, you won’t ever even speak to the lawyer whose face is on the billboard or in the commercial.

When it comes to law firms, bigger does not mean better, and in many cases Cory has actually gotten better payouts than one of these lawyer mills you’ve seen around town.

#3 Why should I hire you to represent me?

It’s an honest question and one that should make you feel comfortable when you give your trust to someone you just met. Unfortunately there are some lawyers who should just not be lawyers. Will they communicate with you often? Do they have good Google reviews? Do they have any kind of awards or accolades?
