3 tips for selecting a personal injury attorney

| Sep 26, 2018 | Uncategorized

If you have suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident due to another person’s negligence, then you likely have grounds for a personal injury case. It is right for you to seek the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering as a result of the injuries you sustained in the crash.

There are many personal injury attorneys vying for your case, and as such, it can be helpful to have some criteria to guide you in making the best selection regarding your representation. Not all attorneys will be appropriate for your particular needs. The following three tips can serve as a basic guideline to assist you as you search for the right attorney for your case.

1. Basic qualifications to consider

Generally speaking, a variety of basic qualifications exist that you should take into consideration when selecting your attorney. These include the number of years your attorney has been in practice, the type of experience he or she has, as well as some logistical considerations, such as location and where he or she is licensed to practice.

2. Approach to personal injury cases

Not all personal injury law firms operate in the same way, so it is important that you understand the way you want your lawyer’s firm to handle your case. Some law firms have attorneys who work together as teams so that your case receives the benefit of the experience of the entire law firm. You should also research how your potential attorney will handle interaction with you throughout your case. Ask if you will be dealing directly with the attorney or if you will primarily have contact with office staff or paralegals, because the answer to this may affect how much personal attention and consideration you receive.

3. Trial experience

A critical component of personal injury cases is the trial phase, where your attorney will make your case for compensation to the court. If your attorney does not have a proven track record of success at trial, you may not be getting the best possible advocate for your case. Research your potential attorney’s experience in the courtroom as well as results in previous lawsuits. You can also ask for testimonials from former clients.
