Locating the Right Personal Injury Lawyer
Every 14 seconds someone is injured or killed in an auto accident. Whenever this occurs, accident victims and/or loved ones will need the assistance of a qualified personal injury lawyer to recoup financial damages for their pain and suffering.
Just what should an accident victim look for when seeking representation? As with anything, it pays to check around and seek legal advisers who have a lot to offer.
For instance, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident it may not be wise to go with a lawyer who is either a) inexperienced or b) specializes in another type of accident scenario.
The reason behind this is pretty clear: experience and expertise can make all the difference between wining your case and facing financial devastation.
Below are a few things you should check mark when seeking a reputable personal injury lawyer.
Word of mouth as well as colleague admiration could be an indicator that the law firm you are interested in is a winner. You should also make sure that the attorney in question is in good standing with the Bar Association and is licensed as well.
Impressive Track Record
All the glowing recommendations in the world won’t matter if the lawyer you choose has a dismal record when it comes to courtroom prowess and actual wins. It pays to not only have a lawyer with experience, but one who knows how to present a solid case in court.
Specializes in your type of accident
You wouldn’t go to a podiatrist for a throat issue, so why would you hire a personal injury lawyer that specializes in malpractice if you are pursuing a product liability lawsuit? Do your home work and seek out a lawyer who knows the ins and outs of your particular type of case.
Attentive to your needs
How will you know what is happening with your case when you can’t get anyone on the phone? The right legal professional knows how worried you are about the suit and will keep you in the loop as much as they can.
Offers to Defer Payment via Contingency
You don’t have to be rich and famous to locate quality representation as many top notch lawyers offer to take personal injury cases on a contingency basis. This means you won’t have to put a penny down as they will be taking their lawyers fees from a percentage of the damages obtained after you win in court. If you don’t win in court, you won’t have to pay lawyer’s fees. This is great set up as it motivates your attorney to work harder for you. If you lose, he loses as well.
Most of all, a great lawyer will have the access to varied tools, like accident reconstruction data and forensic experts, to strengthen you case in court.
