7 Questions to Ask a Personal Injury Lawyer

1.  Should I Call the Insurance Company?

Yes, you can call the insurance company to open a claim. However, when you do speak with an insurance adjuster, you do not need to discuss the details of your injuries or provide your social security number. Fortunately, a personal injury lawyer will communicate with the adjuster on your behalf and make sure you aren’t taken advantage of.

2.  How Long Will It Take for My Case to Settle? 

Ultimately, you decide when you want to close out your case.

Insurance companies will try to settle quickly with low-ball offers. They understand accident victims without legal representation may become impatient and settle as soon as possible. However, you have the power to decide when you want to close your case. Before you accept an offer, make sure you have completely recovered from your injuries. It’s always best to discuss your case with a reputable personal injury lawyer to know what your best options are. 

3.  Who Pays for My Medical Bills?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, a personal injury attorney can help find health care providers who work on medical liens. In personal injury claims, you can receive medical treatment from doctors with no upfront cost.

At Bergener Mirejovsky, our skilled personal injury lawyers have the extensive resources to connect you with the healthcare professionals who work on medical liens statewide. Once you have recovered from your injuries, our in-house lien negotiations team will help reduce your medical bills to maximize your payout.

4.  How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Lawyer?

Many people associate lawyers with hefty price tags. However, injury lawyers work on a contingency fee so you have no out-of-pocket cost. Your attorney will be paid a percentage of your final settlement. This provides a better incentive for your accident attorney to fiercely negotiate your claim for the best results so both of you benefit.

5.  Can I Change Attorneys in the Middle of a Case?

Yes, you are under no obligation to stay with the first legal firm you choose. If you are unsatisfied with the way your current attorney treats you and your case, it may be time to search for a new personal injury law firm.

Remember, your case is in your hands. Making a switch is always an option, even if there is already a settlement offer on the table.
