How to Choose a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident in which you have been injured, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. An experienced attorney will know how to handle your case properly and protect your rights. You want to locate the attorney best equipped to handle your case, and you don’t want to delay. Here are some genera guide lines to consider in your search:

Experience

Experience matters when it comes to building your case and negotiating with insurance companies. Also, look for someone who handles only personal injury cases. Since Personal injury law is constantly evolving, it is important to choose an attorney who is up-to-date with any changes and specializes in handling personal injury cases only. Unlike other firms that handle cases in other areas of law in addition to their personal injury section, our firm is 100% dedicated to helping victims in personal injury cases.

Communication

Almost nothing is more aggravating to a client than to leave a legal project in a lawyer’s hands and then have weeks or even months go by without anything happening. You want a lawyer who will work hard on your behalf and follow through promptly on all assignments. Consider the size of the law firm when hiring an attorney. Many times, a large law firm will assign the case to a less experienced attorney, and not necessarily the attorney that you initially met with. Being able to communicate effectively with your attorney is a crucial aspect of any successful case. Evaluate your attorney’s responsiveness, by asking how you will be able to contact them and how long it will take them to return your communications.

Honesty

It is important to know that attorneys cannot promise results and you may, at times, receive news that you do not like. However, a responsible attorney will let you know the good with the bad and keep expectations for the case realistic and rational for the entirety of the process.

Comfort

Make sure you are comfortable with the lawyer and able to “connect” with him or her. Your case could last months or even years, so you want to make sure you have a good relationship with the person representing you. You as the client need to feel confident in your attorney’s ability to further your best interests. If you are not comfortable with how they conduct their business in any way, it could result in a communication rift and lead to a negative outcome in your case. Attorneys have different styles: some are aggressive, others are more methodical. Recommendations and reviews from other clients are a great way to begin searching for an attorney that fits your preferences.
