Seeking an Injury Attorney? Ask These Questions Before Hiring Your Accident Injury Lawyer
The total number of personal injury attorneys in the United States is in the tens of thousands, which means that victims have a variety of choices from which they can choose assistance. The key to finding the best personal injury attorney is to ask questions before making the decision. The following are five questions that a prospective client should ask an attorney before retaining his or her services:
How Many Clients Do You Serve?
Knowing the approximate number of clients that a prospective attorney serves is important because it allows the person to get an idea of the attorney’s dedication level. An injury victim needs an attorney who can provide a high level of dedication and time.
How Many Years Have You Been in The Field?
Experience and tenure are crucial because they indicate the amount of knowledge that the attorney has. A young attorney is not necessarily incompetent, but an experienced one has been around the block a few times and thus understands the tricks of the trade.
What Are Your Win Statistics?
The win statistics are figures that can give a prospective client hope about his or her case. An aggressive personal injury attorney will have high win statistics, and he or she can share information about the monetary awards with the person.
Do You Provide Contingency Representation?
A prospective client will want to know if an attorney provides contingency representation. Contingency representation is the representation that defers the retainer fee until the attorney wins the case. Such representation makes the case
easy on the victim since the victim already has so many worries. No-win-no-fee representation is an alternate name for contingency representation.
How Much Do You Charge?
Finally, the prospective client will want to ask the attorney how much he or she charges at the end of the case. Some lawyers charge 25 percent, and others charge as much as 40 percent. 5Star.Lawyer is a professional source of attorney listings in the United States.

President Trump has put the FCC in a unique position by asking it to regulate social media sites.
Earlier this week President Donald Trump asked the Federal Communications Commission to regulate Facebook, Twitter and other social media companies. The FCC traditionally anti-regulation, has now been asked to be responsible for punishing social media companies such as Twitter and Facebook for labeling posts as factually inconsistent, dangerous, or volatile.
This would be new and unchartered territory for the agency, and it is unclear if they will ultimately take on that roll.
Trump signed his executive order Thursday, which is an attempt to strip any legal liability protection social media companies currently have for content posted by users. This order was a reaction to Twitter placing labels on two of Trump’s tweets regarding mail-in voting. According to Twitter, President Trump’s tweets contained “potentially misleading information.”
The president is asking the FCC to review Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, the law that gives social media companies their legal protection. The president wants regulations that will let the agency investigate complaints that social media companies discriminate against certain speech on their platforms.
Any role in policing social media is unprecedented with the FCC, which has long positioned itself as anti-regulation. Legally, it is unclear whether the FCC can regulate this as per the President’s order.

In a leaked memo, Boente implied information regarding the Flynn investigation, which was made public record, did not absolve the former official of the Trump administration.
