What to Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer

Have you been injured in an accident caused by another person or party? If so, you may have legal standing to pursue fair compensation for your suffering by filing a personal injury claim against those responsible. When considering the myriad of different law firms all vying to represent your case, however, choosing the right attorney can be an overwhelming experience. What qualities should you look for? How do you know that an attorney will truly have your best interests in mind, rather than their own financial gain? To help alleviate these concerns and ensure you make the right decision, it is important you keep the following factors in mind during your search for representation.

  1. Experience: When your financial wellbeing is on the line, you want an advocate on your side who has dealt with situations similar to yours and understands the strategies necessary to secure the results you need. While years of practice is not always an indicator of legal skill, a veteran attorney who has been practicing law for several years will most often be able to bring a level of insight to your case that outweighs that of a novice, improving your chances of achieving a positive outcome.
  2. Testimonials: One of the best ways to gauge an attorney’s skill, dedication, and client satisfaction is by finding out what past clients have said about them. Testimonials and rankings on professional rating sites such as Avvo can provide an invaluable look into a lawyer’s track record and code of ethics. Seeing how they have treated others will be a solid indicator of how they will treat you.
  3. Personality: While a lawyer may have an immaculate website and a spotless reputation, there is always a chance that their personality may not mesh well with yours upon meeting them for the first time. Since a personal injury attorney is someone who you will be entrusting your financial wellbeing and future to, it is imperative you feel comfortable with them and feel confident in their abilities. Before you make a decision, be sure you meet an attorney and discuss your case with them in detail. Go with your gut feeling. If you are unsure of an attorney’s personality or commitment to pursuing the best possible results for your case, move on.
