How to Select the Right Attorney for Your Personal Injury CaseJanuary 18, 2017
You were just injured in an accident and your friends or family recommend you get an attorney. But how do you choose the right one? Finding an attorney you can trust with your case can be an intimidating process. Here is what to ask, what to look for, and how to select the right attorney for your personal injury case.
The first place to begin is by talking to friends and acquaintances. They may have been through a similar experience and will be able to point you in the right direction or even provide names of qualified experienced attorneys.
Start by looking at how much experience the attorney has, specifically in handling cases like yours, and obtaining positive results. Next, look at how often they take on cases like yours. Many attorneys advertise numerous forms of legal services, but they most likely handle some more than others. This should help further shorten the list. Read client reviews to see how satisfied previous clients in a similar situation were with the attorney’s work.
Once you have narrowed down the list to experienced attorneys that devote a majority or all of their time to handling cases like yours, you should set up a consultation. This opportunity will allow you to ask more detailed questions and a clear assessment of your case. Many of these consultations will be free as many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means they only get paid if they win your case. Consultations are an opportunity not only for the attorney to get an idea of your case and evaluate the risk and reward that will come with it, but for you to get to know them.
Once you find an attorney that makes you feel comfortable, and has a long history of positive results you have most likely found a lawyer you can trust.
