According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 37.9 million people in the United States seek emergency medical treatment for accidents or unintentional injuries each year. This statistic is astonishing and may indicate why so many personal injury cases are filed every year.
Whether you are injured as a result of a slip and fall accident or a defective product, or an auto accident and whether you have suffered broken bones, a neck or back injury, or head trauma, the injury can have a profound and lasting effect on the rest of your life.
This is why if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it is important to hire an experienced and dedicated personal injury attorney who can guide you through the personal injury claims process, and ensure that you recover every bit of compensation you are entitled to recover from the person responsible for your injuries and financial losses.
When choosing an attorney, it is extremely important to choose the right attorney for your personal injury case. Furthermore, since you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim, it is important to get an attorney involved in your case as soon as possible.
Here are a few tips that can help you choose the right personal injury lawyer for your case without wasting a lot of time:
1. Look For An Attorney With Experience and Expertise
Make sure that the personal injury attorney you hire to assist you has the right qualifications and experience in their field of expertise. You need a lawyer who has expertise in dealing with your particular kind of injury. Your lawyer should also be able to interpret medical records and accident reports and be able to negotiate well with the liable insurance companies and their legal teams.
2. Get Recommendations
Word of mouth recommendations are perhaps the best way to find a reputable personal injury attorney. Ask your friends and family members if they know of an attorney that they would recommend. Endorsements like this can give you confidence that you are making the right choice. The more recommendations you can get, the better.
If your family members can’t refer to any good personal injury lawyers, use the internet. The internet can be a great resource when it comes to finding the right personal injury lawyer for your case. Many legal directory websites list personal injury lawyers by city, state, and/or area. These lists can give you plenty of information about a prospective attorney, such as their client testimonials, biographies, and case histories.
3. Ask The Right Questions
Once you have found a few different personal injury attorneys that you like, arrange to meet with them in person. This first consultation is usually free, and will allow you to ask in-depth questions about their qualifications, experience, and fees.
Some questions you should ask a prospective personal injury attorney during the initial consultation include:
• How long have they been practicing?
• How many cases have they handled that were similar to the one you have?
• What experience do they have dealing with insurance companies?
• What sets them apart from other attorneys?
You need to find an attorney that you are comfortable working with and who has the experience and resources necessary to properly investigate and pursue your claim. Try not to base your decision on who has the most visible advertisements in the area or on the internet. Always choose substance over flash and visibility.
