What To Look For When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney in Boca Raton or Fort Lauderdale Florida

If you or a loved one has been injured through the negligence of others, the experienced personal injury lawyer’s at The Berman Law Group possess both the legal knowledge and the expertise to build your case properly, negotiate it with an insurance company, and (if necessary) take your case to trial. Some people try to negotiate their claims directly with the insurance company, but it is in the best interest of the insurance companies to effect the lowest possible settlement. A personal injury attorney at The Berman Law Group is in a better position to help you obtain a favorable settlement for your case.  At The Berman Law Group, our personal injury attorneys typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that the attorney does not get paid unless the client makes a recovery. The personal injury attorney’s fee is therefore based on a pre-set percentage of the gross amount of recovery, plus out-of-pocket expenses. Accordingly, our reputable personal injury attorney’s will routinely advance the costs necessary to represent clients and prepare cases for trial, if necessary.

Additionally, it is of paramount importance to do your homework before choosing a personal injury attorney to help you with your case. Ask for information about the personal injury lawyer’s education, training and experience, and ask the lawyer to tell you about his/her experience in dealing with cases similar to yours. Ask about the lawyer’s trial and courtroom experience as well, and assure yourself that if your case goes to trial, your lawyer has the knowledge and expertise to take you there.

Ask the personal injury lawyer to go over the attorney’s fee contract with you in detail. Be sure you understand how the lawyer’s fees and costs will be paid at the end of the case, and request a written retainer agreement. In addition, here are some of the pertinent questions you should ask your prospective  personal injury attorney:

• Do you specialize in any particular area(s) of law?

• How often do you go to trial?

• Have you handled similar cases before? How successful were you in those cases?

• Have you ever been disciplined by an ethics committee, or been suspended from the practice of law?

• Can you provide a time estimate for the case to be resolved?

• How will you keep me informed about the progress of my case?  If I have questions pertinent to my case, how soon can I expect to hear back from you?
