Tell me About Your Experience as an Attorney. How Long Have You Been Practicing?

While no lawyer can promise a result, claimants may feel more comfortable knowing a personal injury attorney has been practicing in the field for a substantial period of time. It is appropriate to inquire as to the number of attorneys in a law firm, the number of years of experience each lawyer possesses, and which legal fields attorneys in the firm have focused on in their individual practices.

What Happens if The Insurance Company Will not Settle? Will You Bring a Lawsuit?

An experienced personal injury attorney should be able to deliver to a client or potential frank advice about the prospects of litigation success. An experienced attorney should not exaggerate about a client’s prospects for success in a lawsuit where the prospects are dim. At the same time, an injured person wants a lawyer on one’s side who is willing to take a case to trial if necessary.

What is the Law Firm’s Track Record of Working With Expert Witnesses?

Cases involving specialized scientific or medical evidence often require the testimony of experts. Expert testimony has been critical in Stryker hip implant lawsuits. Expert witnesses can demonstrate to a jury how defective hip implants caused injuries. Financial experts can describe the cost of an injured persons’ future pain and suffering and other losses caused by defective Stryker hip implants.

Experienced personal injury attorneys should have a proven track record of working with experts who can help an injured person win one’s personal injury case.

How can an Attorney Obtain The Evidence Needed to Win a Case?

The Rules of Civil Procedure provide litigants with tools to discover and obtain evidence, including physical evidence. Evidence must be properly authenticated, which means that attorneys must take care to demonstrate that an item of evidence is what it is purported to be, and that a person with knowledge can identify it.

Experienced attorneys can, using the Rules of Civil Procedure, obtain and properly present evidence to a jury in a personal injury case.

Is a Client Assigned to Work With The Lawyer Who Answered The Call?

An experienced personal injury law firm like Arnold & Smith, PLLC employs a team approach to cases, and oftentimes lawyers from across different practice areas in the firm will assist in client matters that involve complex issues and proceedings.

How are The Costs in a Lawsuit Allocated?

Although personal injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency basis, meaning the lawyers get paid no fees unless a client wins, in order to present a case in court, experts and other witnesses may charge appearance fees, vendors such as transcriptionists may bill for their time and labor, and courts may charge various filing and other fees. Clients generally bear these costs, although in some cases law firms may front some costs, at their sole discretion.

Resonable expectations were set and the results far exceeded them. I was well informed, prepared and supported by Matt and his team. They provided comfort and confidence, as well as a great outcome. I can't possibly describe how grateful I truly am for what they have done for me. Matt was recommended to be by another trusted individual and I believe that was a blessing. Anthony
★★★★★
I can't say enough great things about Matthew Arnold and his team. I had a very complicated, high-conflict case which took a lot of time and effort on everyone's part, and I feel like my case was given the time and attention it required. Matt Arnold is a great attorney, and I would go as far as saying one of the best in Charlotte, if not the best. Bree is also amazing. Amber
