Ask these questions when meeting with a car accident lawyer

Imagine that you have just been through a devastating car accident that has left you seriously injured. Your doctors are discussing that you may have to go through rehabilitation, which is going to cost a fortune -- a fortune that you simply do not have. If the Rhode Island car accident was caused by another individual due to his or her reckless actions, you may be able to pursue legal action to hold him or her responsible for the accident and obtain financial remuneration to assist you in your recovery.

First, you need to schedule a consultation with an attorney. As a general rule, you will be able to meet with a personal injury lawyer for free since most of them work on a contingency basis, meaning you only pay the lawyer if you receive a settlement. At this initial consultation, you need to know what to ask to ensure that you are hiring the right legal counsel for your case.

Before hiring an attorney, ask him or her how many trials he or she has personally handled and how many of those cases he or she has won. You will also want to ask about other things that qualify his or her expertise, such as the length of time he or she has been in practice as well as proof of his or her credentials. In addition, you will want to ask for the lawyer's opinion on your case. Does he or she feel that you have a winning case? How will the case be handled and how long will it take?

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a Rhode Island car accident and another individual was at-fault, you could need a personal injury attorney with years of experience. Our law firm has successfully handled personal injury cases for over 25 years, and we can help ensure that you stick to time limits set forth by the state for filing these types of claims. In addition, we can ensure that your rights are fully protected if you decide to move forward with your case.
