When you have an injury-related legal matter that’s particularly complex or has the potential to involve a lot of money, hiring a personal injury lawyer to look out for your interests, negotiate a fair settlement offer, or try your civil case in a court of law is often wise. However, choosing the right attorney for you and your case is rarely as simple as just opening a phone book.
What to Look For in an Attorney
When considering various Indiana lawyers and law firms, the answers to the following questions can help ensure you find someone who’s a good fit:
- Does the attorney or firm have experience handling cases similar to yours?
- Are they willing to take your case all the way to trial, if necessary?
- What is their contingency fee?
- Will the lawyer or firm answer phone calls and emails in a timely manner?
- Does the attorney or law firm have references or client testimonials they’re willing to share?
The Hiring Process
While the exact hiring process can vary between lawyers and law firms, at Sevenish Law, this process starts with a short phone call to the firm’s Indianapolis office to discuss the general facts of your potential case.
After the call, prospective clients can make an appointment to meet with our experienced personal injury lawyer Randy Sevenish. If your case and our firm are a good fit, and Randy accepts your case, we’ll ask you to read and sign a contingent fee agreement and medical release that allows us to gather your relevant medical records. With the paperwork out of the way, Sevenish Law’s knowledgeable legal team can begin investigating, gathering evidence, and building a strong case for your personal injury claim or lawsuit.
