Top 4 Questions to Ask During a New York Personal Injury Consultation

While there are many questions you might want to ask during a New York personal injury consultation, there are four that stand out as the most critical. 

Have you handled personal injury cases like mine before?

Perhaps the most crucial question to ask is if the firm  has handled cases like yours. Every personal injury case is unique in some way, so the more experience that a New York personal injury attorney has with cases similar to yours, the more likely it is you will get the outcome you deserve. 

How can compensation help me?

The components of compensation from a personal injury case include for pain and suffering (including surgeries, recovery, future medical care, etc.) medical expenses, lost income/wages (past and future) and other long-term implications from your accident. The right firm will analyze every aspect of your case to determine the compensation to which you are entitled for your injuries. 

How much experience do you have in New York personal injury law?

In addition to asking about experience with cases like yours, ask about the firm’s experience with New York personal injury law in general. Some of the legalities of personal injury claims are complex, so it is paramount that the attorney you choose is someone who knows the ins and outs of the entire system. 

How long have you been practicing law in New York?

The longevity of a firm’s experience matters when it comes to choosing a personal injury lawyer. While newly minted attorneys are typically well-educated and enthusiastic, you are more likely to have peace of mind working with a firm that boasts a combination of eager new talent and seasoned personal injury lawyers well-versed in New York personal injury law.
