If you are going to be comfortable with an injury lawyer who is working with you on a compensation claim, you want to be sure that they know what they are doing. There are lots of questions that you can ask your injury lawyer to make sure that they know what they are doing and are the right lawyer for you, but they should be asking you some questions relating to your specific accident and injury claims in Dartford as well.
Here are some of the questions to look out for in your initial conversation, so that you know that you have chosen the right injury lawyer for you.
Never trust an injury lawyer who promises to make a successful claim on your behalf without ever actually knowing what happened in your accident. If your lawyer isn’t interested in what happened in the accident then they are not really interested in finding out the truth and getting you what you deserve, more just getting their bit of the compensation.
What evidence do you have?
Again, an injury lawyer who doesn’t want to know what evidence you have probably isn’t very keen on putting together the strongest most honest account of your accident and claim. The best lawyers will build your case from the evidence that you have, so this is a topic of conversation which should come up early.
What will you settle for?
Your lawyer should always take into account what you actually want out of the case, and should keep this in mind as they process your claim. If you are willing to settle for a certain amount then they should know this so that they know when to stop pushing the claim forward.
