What to Ask in Your Consultation
This can be a difficult time for you. When you meet with your potential attorney, be sure to ask him or her these questions:
#1: What Will My Role Be in the Case?
Ask how involved you will be in the case so that you can adequately prepare. Find out how often the lawyer expects to hear from you and what kind of communication you can expect.
#2: What is Your Experience in Handling These Cases?
Ask about his or her track record and experience with wrongful death lawsuits. Make sure you find a lawyer who has the experience to handle these complicated kinds of cases.
#3: Do You Have Time to Dedicate to My Case?
Make sure he or she has the time to spend on your case so it will be handled correctly. Choose a firm with the appropriate assets in terms of the size of the legal team and its staff.
#4 Do You Have the Finances to Dedicate to My Case?
Not every firm can handle a wrongful death case. It will be necessary to fund depositions, research, expert witnesses and exhibits. Make sure you choose a firm with the financial assets to present your case properly.
#5: How Much is My Case Worth?
This will give you a good idea of how much compensation you can expect to receive. Understand, your lawyer might not be able to answer this question right away. Frequently research is required. A good attorney will be honest with you about what steps need to be taken before he can give you a sense of the value of your case.
#6: Will My Case Go to Trial?
Frequently, your lawyer will not know the answer to this question right away. But your lawyer should put your case together, from day one, as if it will be going to trial. That way he and you will be prepared should a trial be necessary. Ask your lawyer how s/he handles cases and make sure s/he plans as if she will be going to trial, no matter what.
