10 Crucial Questions to Ask Your Personal Injury Attorney

Suffering an injury due to someone else’s negligence can be a trying experience. When seeking legal recourse for your injury, finding the right personal injury attorney is crucial. To ensure you select the best representation for your case, asking the right questions during your initial consultation is essential.
Here are the top 10 questions to consider:

1. What Is Your Experience in Handling Cases Similar to Mine?

Every case is different, and every client has unique experiences and challenges as result of being injured. In our almost 100-year history as a firm, we have been standing up for those who have been injured or suffered the loss of a loved one due to negligence or wrongdoing. We have handled a wide variety of cases over the years, and our attorneys have a combined 300-plus years of experience in personal injury cases, including automobile injury, wrongful/accidental death, premises liability, gun liability, negligent security, product injury, and other related injury cases. Our lawyers have obtained verdicts, judgments and settlements that total in the hundreds of millions of dollars. You can review some of those results here, and we are here to help.

2. What Approach Would You Take with My Case?

The first thing we do is focus on communication. We will learn about your case and your injuries and help you through the process with regular communication. We are always available for our clients. We take a very proactive and aggressive approach when dealing with the parties at fault that we are bringing action against on behalf of our clients. We have been representing injured plaintiffs and their families in and around the West Palm Beach, Stuart, Boca Raton, Wellington and throughout Florida since we opened our doors in 1927. We understand just how difficult this process can be. Our team of experienced lawyers will be at your side throughout the entirety of your matter to provide personal communication as we guide you and your family toward recovery and compensation.

3. Will You Personally Handle My Case?

Yes. At Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, your case will be handled by at least one of our experienced lawyers who will be at your side throughout the entirety of your matter to provide personal communication as we guide you toward recovery and compensation. Some advertising firms use case managers, but our firm frequently has a team of two lawyers and legal staff working together for our clients.

4. What Potential Compensation Could I Expect?

One of the most common questions our personal injury lawyers hear is how much a certain case is worth. Without fully reviewing the facts of your case, it is impossible to determine how much you can receive in damages. The value of your case will depend on the severity of your injuries, your own degree of fault for the accident, and more. We work our hardest to get the maximal value and results for our clients.

5. How Do You Charge for Your Services?

In the State of Florida, personal injury lawyers are legally required to handle personal injury case on a contingent fee basis. You do not owe our firm any attorney’s fees unless you make a recovery or settlement on your case. A Florida personal injury lawyer can also help you secure a significantly larger outcome than you would on your own. Our lawyers have significant experience and can explain how we will work hard to get the maximum result on your case.

6. How Long Will My Case Take?

Every case is unique and has a different timetable, often related to the duration of medical care. Sometimes cases get resolved more quickly, and sometimes the outcome takes longer if litigation is necessary. After reviewing your case, the personal injury lawyers at our firm can provide a general timeline you can expect from your claim and be in regular communication throughout the process.

7. Will My Case Likely Go to Trial?

The vast majority of personal injury cases settle out of court in Florida. Still, it is important to work with a Florida personal injury lawyer who has trial experience like our lawyers do, many of whom are board certified trial lawyers. This reputation is helpful when we negotiate with the insurance company and at-fault party to help you recover a fair settlement. You should also only work with a lawyer who has trial and significant litigation experience.

8. Can You Provide References or Case Examples?

Evry case is different, and we have handled many types of cases over the years. We would encourage you to review the Case Results and Client Reviews on our website for more helpful information.

9. How Accessible Will You Be During My Case?

Our reputation for dedication to personal service is unparalleled. We are big believers in communication with our clients throughout the pendency of the case. You will regularly hear directly from your attorney as the case moves forward. We are there to get the best result for you, and we are there to provide communication and counsel while the case is pending.

10. What Sets Your Firm Apart from Others?

The firm has a reputation for hard work and good results for nearly a century. Our attorneys have successfully fought for our clients all over Florida. Our attention to detail, along with a proven record of success, has earned us an unparalleled reputation. As a result, we can rely solely on referrals from clients and professionals and friends in the community. We do no formal advertising as we believe that a job well done, and a client well served, is the best way to generate new business and grow our firm.
