Your Accident Lawyer in Boulder Should Have These Qualifications

In the event that you are involved in an accident in the Boulder area, you will want to retain the services of a local accident lawyer in Boulder. Your attorney will be able to tell you if you have a valid claim, help you gather supporting documents and present your claim for damages to the insurance company. In the event that your claim cannot be settled, your accident lawyer can represent you at the trial. In order to choose the right attorney for your particular case, you need to be able to ask the right questions. Here are some tips to get you started.

QUESTIONS TO ASK

In addition to being comfortable with your attorney, you also want to be sure he has the right expertise for your case.

  • Has he or she handled cases similar to yours?
  • Has he or she handled injuries like yours?
  • Can he or she give you some idea of settlement ranges in cases like yours?
  • How much is the fee?
  • Will you have to make any other payments (expenses)?
  • Can the lawyer provide client testimonials?

Most personal injury and car accident claims are handled on a contingency basis, as a percentage of the award for damages. The percentage is usually in the 30-40 percent range.

CHOOSE SOMEONE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH

Sometimes accident cases can drag on for a long time. Therefore, you want to work with an attorney whom you feel comfortable interacting with. You do not want to be put in the position of having to start all over with another attorney in the event of a disagreement or personality conflict.

This is a two-way street. It is also important that you are totally honest with your attorney. Your legal relationship will be based on trust and full disclosure on the part of both of you.

By choosing an lawyer who is specialized in handling claims similar to yours, you will be able to obtain the best possible outcome for your case. Call 303-447-1144 today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced accident lawyer at Sloat & Nicholson, P.C.
