  • Clients: Does the firm have a solid track record? How many clients has it served? Do they have positive or negative things to say about the firm?
  • Fees: Are the firm’s fees fair? Or would they eat up too much of the compensation you are trying to receive?

In this sort of scenario, you the plaintiff become responsible for proving that the other party, the defendant, is indeed negligible, and should therefore be held accountable for the injuries you sustained. It is for these sorts of scenarios that a compensation lawyer might be needed.
