Have you or a loved one recently sustained a personal injury? If so, a lawsuit can help to cover medical costs and to ensure the responsible party faces penalties. But choosing a personal injury lawyer is no easy task. It can be difficult to find the one with the necessary experience, qualifications, and track record of success. Here are some things to look for when hiring a personal injury lawyer.
Outstanding Track Record
If a law firm is any good, they will be transparent about their track record. You want a lawyer that displays demonstrated success in their field. They may publish such information as verdicts and settlements on their website. If they have a track record of success, they will likely be successful when working your case as well.
A good lawyer will have a good reputation. While you should always take online reviews with a grain of salt, the internet can be a great resource for inspecting the reputation of lawyers. Use the abundance of resources provided to you by the internet to build a sense of prospective lawyers. Two particularly helpful resources are Super Lawyer and Avvo.
If this is your first time hiring a lawyer, you might not like the sound of ‘contingency fees.’ But trust us—it’s a good thing. If a law firm operates on a contingency basis, this means that you will not have to pay unless they win.
An attorney that will work for you on a contingency fee is worthy of your trust. It is a sign of the immense confidence they have in the service that they provide. On top of this, this means that there is far less risk for you.
Too many lawyers try to do it all. While this is admirable on paper, the truth is that law is an exceptionally complicated field. It’s best to master one area of it rather than to develop superficial knowledge of many. For this reason, you should seek out a lawyer that is laser-focused on personal injuries.
Personal injuries can take many forms—from medical malpractice, to workplace accidents, to car crashes. If possible, find a lawyer that has experience working cases similar to your own.
