Wrapping up our blog series entitled How to Choose the Best Personal Injury Attorney to Represent You, below are some final tips to keep in mind as you prepare to hire the best lawyer and move forward with your case.
Final Steps: Selecting the Best Personal Injury Attorney
Tip 5 – Talk to Your Top Choices
You can only learn so much about a personal injury attorney from your online or other research. Once you’ve narrowed your options down to a handful or less, consider making the time to meet with each candidate – or, at the very least, arranging some time to speak with each personal injury attorney on the phone.
Whether you meet face-to-face or speak with a lawyer via phone, make sure you ask some specific questions that can better help you assess the quality of service a given personal injury attorney may offer.
Examples of questions you may want to ask when you speak to a candidate include (but are not exclusive to):
- How long have practiced law?
- How much experience do you have with cases like mine?
- What is your success rate with cases like mine?
- What can I expect in terms of service from you?
- What sets you apart from other lawyers?
- Why should I hire you instead of someone else?
Tip 6 – Trust Your Instincts
After you speak with your top choices for lawyers, make your final decision based on your instincts – namely, choose a personal injury attorney who made you feel comfortable, whom you trust and whom you can rely on for the weeks or months to come as your case progresses towards its resolution.
If you have an odd, uncomfortable or bad feeling about any of the lawyers with whom you meet, trust your gut and do not move forward with that individual. The bottom line is that you will need to be able to fully trust your personal injury attorney as you move forward, and your gut reaction should guide you in the final decision-making process.
