A personal injury lawyer is one who provides legal services to persons injured both physically and psychologically. The injury may be caused by government agency, another person, company or any other entity. For instance, the cases may be related to slip and fall accidents, defective products, traffic collisions, workplace injuries, malpractices, etc.
The playing field is always crowded. With so many attorneys in the field, it is not easy to choose the best and most suitable. Here are some questions to ask the Boise personal injury lawyer before hiring him.
What is his level of experience?
Ask him if he has experience in dealing with similar cases in the past. Here experience refers to connections with investigators and other experts that can help with the case.
What amount of compensation can be expected?
First, enquire him about the chances of winning. If the chances of winning are less, make sure very little is lost. While answering this question, he should not be unrealistic. He should be able to provide rough estimates.
Who will do the case works?
