Be Sure to Write Your Questions Down
You will want to write your questions down before your meeting. Bring a pen and notebook – or your phone or tablet if you prefer taking notes electronically.
To make the most of your first evaluation, here are some suggested questions to ask a personal injury lawyer in Houston:
- Do you accept this type of case?
- How much experience does your firm have in this area?
- How much do you charge?
- What kind of settlement may I expect?
- How long does it take for an insurance settlement?
- Will I deal with an attorney or another staff member?
- Will I have to talk to the insurance company or the defendant?
- How long do I have to file a claim or a lawsuit in Houston?
- Do you ever take cases to court?
- If my case does go to court, will I have to testify?
