What to Look for When Hiring a Lawyer

When it comes to hiring the right attorney to handle your personal injury case, there are multiple vital points to consider.

Experience Specialized in the Field

Work with a lawyer who specializes in the legal practice area your case falls into and has a broad range of experience defending claims similar
to yours.

For example, if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident, select an attorney with an extensive background handling these cases in both negotiation as well as courtroom settings. Many cases can be settled without the need for the time and expense of trial, while others will proceed to the litigation stage.

Skilled at Negotiations and Litigation

The lawyer you hire should have an established history of handling all phases of a personal injury claim and achieving successful results for clients. Ensuring you have competent, knowledgeable legal representation on your side will give you peace of mind. Your attorney should not only be an accomplished negotiator and litigator, but an excellent communicator who will keep you regularly informed with developments about your case.

Contingency-Based Payment

When considering a lawyer, you should ensure that all billing and fee policies are clearly outlined and understood from the beginning. Most personal injury firms work on a contingency fee basis.

History of Success

Another element to consider when hiring an attorney is a firm’s track record. Your lawyer should not only be able to demonstrate a proven background of winning cases for clients in settlement negotiations or at trial, but also have the case reviews to back that up.

Insurance companies are notorious for working every angle to avoid paying out claims to personal injury plaintiffs. Work with an attorney who has the expertise and experience required to cut through these tactics and present a clear, compelling case for the recovery of financial damages owed.

Whether investigating sources of liability for your injuries, collecting evidence from law enforcement and other parties involved, speaking with witnesses, or compiling a settlement demand that reflects the full extent of your harm and damage, a skilled personal injury lawyer could manage all aspects of your claim.
