When you have been the victim of a personal injury, it can be an overwhelming and confusing experience. You are faced with large hospital bills, time away from work, automobile repairs, and physical and emotional trauma. Without proper legal representation it can be extremely difficult to reclaim your life.

There are several questions you need to ask your personal injury attorney during your first meeting.

Is there a contingency fee?

“You are not required to hire us after a consult and there’s no bill,” explains Scott Mann, personal injury attorney. “We simply want to inform you of your legal rights, so you can make an educated decision about your next plan of action. There is no contingency fee unless you receive a settlement in your case.”

Are you experienced in this case type?
