When you are ready to stand up for your rights and hold a negligent party accountable for causing your personal injuries, choosing the right lawyer will be the first important step you will take on the road to justice and compensation.
In fact, while retaining a personal injury attorney will be among your initial moves in your pursuit of justice, it will also likely be one of the MOST important choices you make in the course of your case. This is because, with the right personal injury attorney representing you, you can optimize your chances of:
- Winning your case
- Securing the highest possible compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, property damage, etc.
Given, however, that there are so many choices of lawyers out there, in this blog series, we will discuss some specific tips that can help you zero in on the best personal injury attorney to represent you.
Tips for Choosing the Best Personal Injury Attorney…
Tip 1 – Start with Referrals & Some Online Research
When you are ready to start your search for the best personal injury attorney to handle your important legal matters, you may want to ask friends and family for referrals. If, however, you get a bunch of – or no – referrals, do an online search for local PI lawyers in your area.
Given that these searches can yield hundreds (if not thousands) of results, make a list of your top 10 (or so) candidates, based on looking through their websites. From here, you can start the process of narrowing down your best choices.
Tip 2 – Check Out the Specific Experience of a Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury is a vast area of law, and not every personal injury attorney will specialize in handling every type of case. Therefore, just because a lawyer’s practice is based on personal injury law, don’t assume that lawyer is experienced at handling cases like yours.
Instead, make sure to check out the stated practice areas on the lawyer’s website and/or call the firm directly to inquire about whether it handles cases like yours. Avoid moving forward with a personal injury attorney who does not specifically specialize in or have experience with cases like yours.
