How to Interview a Personal Injury Attorney

Chad West Sept. 30, 2020

When the unthinkable happens and you find yourself or a loved one injured, recovery is likely the first question on your mind. When will I feel better? But not far behind, questions about how a severe injury will impact your ability to go to work and complete normal, everyday tasks like driving a car or caring for your children begin to arise. If you’ve found yourself wondering how to get back to normal and contemplating whether you need professional legal help to get there, this blog post is for you.

Hiring a personal injury attorney is a highly personal and significant decision. If you’re faced with a severe injury and long road to recovery, the person you hire to advocate for your rights matters. Our commitment is to personal service, preparing every case meticulously in anticipation of a trial and providing expert case management to guide you through the process and shield you from stress and anxiety so that you can focus on your health and well-being.

Here are six questions to ask your personal injury attorney.

What are your fees? All our fees are based on a contingency, and you don’t pay unless we recover for you. The majority of personal injury attorneys are paid this way and offer free consultation. We are confident in our ability to secure a fair settlement for you. More importantly, we know what’s realistic depending on the type and severity of injury. If someone insists on a fee prior to service, they’re shady. Run the other way!

How to you help me with treatment? A good personal injury firm will know the industry players in the medical treatment field. We maintain relationships and an ongoing database of Dallas personal injury treatment providers who specialize in helping people heal after a personal injury. Our providers are also well versed in working with insurance companies. They know how to manage the billing process, and so do we. When you sign on with us, the medical bills will stop coming. Our team will expertly manage the whole process.

Do you solicit clients who have been recently injured? At Chad West, PLLC, the majority of our clients are referred to us by past clients or are repeat clients themselves. Law firms that direct mail or otherwise cold solicit clients are shady. If a law firm or an attorney is unable to attract business from referrals, that means there’s a trail of disappointed clients somewhere!

Why do you think I have a good case? It may sound crazy, but we don’t accept every case that comes our way, and you should not want the attorney who does. A professional and credible Dallas personal injury attorney should evaluate your case on its merit. If you have a good case, we’ll tell you. If not, we’ll advise a different course of action.

Will my case go to trial? Insurance companies know the attorneys who take cases to trial. While we don’t always litigate, we are ALWAYS prepared. We prep every case to go all the way, and the level of detail we execute is evidenced by the results we get for our clients. Our team has successfully handled countless high stakes litigation cases ranging from complex plaintiff’s litigation suits with large sum amounts in verdicts, judgments and settlements.

Who will be my primary contact? Our goal is personalized service from start to finish. We are a boutique firm with a team of professionals who will be there to help you every step of the way. To us, you will never be just another client. You will hear from the same few people throughout the duration of your case.
