When you want to hire especially personal injury lawyer what information you should look for or what questions you will ask from the lawyer? What information fees to be included in the signed documentation such as fee, etc?

First, a personal injury lawyer should be brought in early in the process.  Most attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, but you should look out for hidden fees, such as storage fees, which you could negotiate with the attorney.

As far as who you should hire, the biggest complaint clients have about their attorney is lack of communication.  Lawyers are notorious for failing to respond to their clients, leading to confusion and frustration.  You should also look into his or her track record and settlements.

If you're injured in a car accident due to another driver's negligence, there is no guarantee your medical bills will be covered by that driver's car insurance company; or, if you are paid, that you will be justly compensated.

You should also know it’s not necessary to hire an attorney for all personal injury scenarios. You have to hire personal injury lawyer in the following situations.

1. If you were injured seriously.
2. If your injury caused by someone else.
3. Is the company refusing to pay or offering an unreasonably low amount?
4. Are you comfortable with the law and the settlement process?

If you have recently been injured through no fault of your own, then you need to start looking for a competent personal injury lawyer to represent you against the insurance company. Finding a personal injury lawyer should not be done in a hurry. Here are some tips for finding the right personal injury lawyer to suit your needs.

Ask for Recommendations
The first thing you need to do is ask for recommendations. Talk to friends and family to see if they have used a certain team of lawyers in the past. You can tell what type of a lawyer you are going to get from recommendations and reviews many times.

Schedule a Consultation
After you get a list of lawyers together, you should call and schedule a consultation with a couple of them. Never, hire a lawyer over the phone. You want to talk to the lawyer face to face, so that you can see how comfortable you feel with him. If at any time during a consultation you feel that the lawyer does not have your best interests at heart, you should end the interview and move to the next interview on your list.

Discuss the Facts of Your Case
Discuss the facts of your case with any potential lawyer to see if he indeed thinks that you have a case. A reputable lawyer will be upfront about your chances and not make promises he might not be able to keep. Discuss the facts, see how well you get on with the lawyer, and ask about payment from there.
These are just a few tips for finding a top personal injury lawyer.
