If you’re not familiar with the legal system, it can be hard to know what questions to ask. Here are some questions to ask a Baltimore personal injury lawyer in order to get the ball rolling:

What are My Chances for Recovery?

You need to know how the law applies to your case. You need an honest assessment of how the law applies to the facts at hand. Knowing your likelihood for success can help you decide if you want to go forward and how you want to proceed.

What is Contributory Negligence and Does that Apply to My Case?

In Maryland, if you add to the cause of your injuries, it may or may not prevent you from bringing a claim for damages. Your Baltimore personal injury lawyer can explain how contributory negligence works and whether it’s going to be a factor in your case.

Can You Tell Me a Little Bit About How My Case Might Unfold?

Bringing a lawsuit is a big undertaking. You want to know what to expect. It’s a good idea to ask your attorney to give you an overview of the court process. This can help you clarify what’s to come as your case moves through the courts.

Can You Tell Me About Your Background?

Your attorney is about to become your advocate for a very important matter. It’s important to choose the best legal team for the job. Asking your attorney about their training and experience in personal injury law can give you some insight as to whether they’re up to the task. They should be able to tell you about cases that they’ve handled that are similar to yours. This can give you some insight as to how they can put their experience to work on your behalf.
