Questions to Ask Prospective Personal Injury Lawyers

By Farhan Naqvi, Personal Injury Lawyer in Las Vegas

You or a loved one has been hurt in an accident in Las Vegas, Summerlin, Henderson, Green Valley, or another city in Clark County. You feel that someone else is responsible for the incident, but you may not be sure. So you are thinking about seeking the advice of a lawyer and possibly filing a personal injury lawsuit.

How do you determine which attorney is best for you?

Here are a few questions you should ask any attorney whom you may be considering to represent you in this type of litigation.

  • How much experience do you have with personal injury lawsuits? Attorneys will often promote their “years of experience” in practicing law. But you should find out how long they have been working with personal injury cases specifically. Because if a lawyer is well-versed in wills, tax laws, securities law, or sexual discrimination, none of that experience will help win your personal injury case.
  • How much experience do you have in Clark County? It is important that your attorney be familiar with the intricacies and nuances of the Clark County legal process and its judges and lawyers. This familiarity can mean the difference between a large judgment and a small one – or even a favorable verdict and an unfavorable one.
  • How many personal injury lawsuits have you taken to trial? If your attorney is not comfortable with arguing your case in a courtroom, then you may not be able to get all of the compensation you deserve. But if your lawyer is willing to go to trial with your case, you can feel confident that he or she has your best interests at heart. 

Choosing the right personal injury lawyer is one of the most important decisions you can make in your fight to get the compensation you deserve from an accident. So make sure you choose wisely!
