Before you hire a lawyer there are three questions you should ask them 1. How many cases like mine have you handled? The more experience your lawyer has can mean a big difference in the result of your settlement. Hiring a lawyer with years of experience will help you in a variety of different ways. He'll already have relationships established with the insurance adjustors and he will know the ins and outs of the applicable laws. Greene and Phillips has handled thousands of personal injury cases of a variety of types including car wreck cases, slip and fall cases, 2. What system does the lawyer have in place to keep track of cases. It may surprise you to find out that your lawyer is working on your case based on a paper file folder. This can mean lost records, being put at the bottom of a to-do list or even forgotten. At Greene & Phillips we use an advanced paperless computer system that ensures no file or record gets lost or misplaced and that there is always someone working to move your case toward settlement. 3. Ask your lawyer about settlement values of cases he has settled. You need to know you are working with a reputable firm that has has experience in handling large cases. Those attorneys who have had large settlements related to your injury type will have proven experience to get you the full value of your claim.
