How do I Find the Right Corpus Christi Accident and Injury Lawyer?

How to Find the Right Car Accident Lawyer

There are many ways to find an experienced, qualified car wreck lawyer. A referral from friends and family may be a good place to start. However, all online lawyer referral services are not the same. Unless you really have an unlimited number of hours to spend looking for online referrals, you will want to find a car wreck lawyer using any one of the number of attorney directories, all quality assured, who make their money connecting people who need an experienced attorney.

What Questions Should I ask my Potential Car Accident Lawyer

Before speaking with a car wreck attorney, you should get as much detailed information as possible about the facts surrounding the vehicle accident and any potential financial losses and injuries as possible. The documents you should gather for your attorney should include information from the accident scene, any insurance policy that might cover your losses, and your medical records, among the other important things. These are some of the important questions you want to ask a potential attorney hire before you hire them as your auto accident lawyer.

  • What total percentage of your law practice is made up of car accident cases?
  • How much experience does your firm have with the specific injury at issue in your case?
  • What has been the typical range of settlements in claims similar to this one?
  • How much of the work on my accident case will you actually do yourself?
  • How do you structure your legal fees?
  • What out-of-pocket costs and/or expenses am I possibly responsible to pay back to if we don’t win money in a settlement or judgment?
Car Accident Attorney Fees

Most injury and accident cases are done on a contingent fee or "no win-no pay" basis. What this means is that if your attorney does not settle or win your case on your behalf, he or she does not get an attorney’s fee. What does happen, however, is that if your attorney gets a recovery in your case, then your attorney gets a percentage of the damages won or awarded. Your attorney's percentage taken varies in each case, but can usually equal about one-third to 40% out of your total recovery. It is very important to remember that the attorney fees are very different from costs. You might be responsible to the attorney for certain expenses he or she is out of pocket which are associated with your case. This varies with each individual attorney fee contract.
