If you have a personal injury case, you want an attorney at your side to navigate the legal system, negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies and defendants, and ensure you get the compensation you deserve. With so many lawyers, how do you know who to hire? Here are some things to look for:
It is critical that you choose a personal injury attorney with trial experience and a proven track record of providing high-caliber legal representation. While many cases settle before trial, settlement is not a guarantee. It is important that your lawyer be willing and prepared to go to trial on your behalf.
Litigating a personal injury case requires substantial resources. Your lawyer will need to collect medical records, conduct depositions, hire experts, and may need to hire an accident reconstructionist. Make sure you select a lawyer who has developed relationships with these experts and specialists, and who has the resources needed to fully litigate your case.
Some attorneys play on both sides of the fence and represent both plaintiffs and defendants. It is important that you hire a lawyer who exclusively represents injured victims. Representing injured victims is a specialized practice, and a lawyer who exclusively represents injured victims will have honed the skills necessary to obtain a favorable outcome.
You should select an attorney who works on a contingency fee basis. With a contingency fee arrangement, your attorney only collects a fee if he or she obtains a recovery on your behalf.
