You don’t have to look far into the Yellow Pages or an internet search to find long lists of attorneys offering a variety of services. But how do you choose the right attorney for your personal injury case? Here are 5 tips for choosing a personal injury attorney that will suit your needs and your case.
- Experience – When it comes to choosing a personal injury attorney, you definitely want to choose an attorney that has experience managing personal injury cases. You want to find an attorney who is knowledgeable in personal injury law specific to your state, and who has experience working through the various unique aspects of personal injury cases.
- Reputation – You can learn a lot about an attorney by exploring his or her reputation. Look at online reviews and client testimonials to see what others in your situation have to say. You can also find out more by visiting websites like avvo.com, bbb.org, and americanbar.org.
- Focus – Personal injury cases are often resolved at different points in the legal system. Around 95 percent of personal injury cases are settled before going to trial. It is advisable to choose a personal injury attorney who has obtained both verdicts (trial) and settlements (pre-trial) for clients.
- Resources – Personal injury cases are often lengthy and require a variety of expenses during the preparation and litigation of your case. Make sure the attorney you choose has the resources you need for your case. Consider the following:
- Is he or she connected to other attorneys in the area?
- Is he or she a member of professional and community organizations?
- Does he or she have resources in terms of medical experts, accident reconstruction, life care planners, and accountants?
- Personality – One often overlooked, yet very important, aspect of choosing the right attorney is choosing one whose personality fits you and your case. Personal injury cases often take a lot of time, and can be extremely emotional. It is important that your attorney is someone you trust, feel comfortable with, and whose process suits you and your family.
