Five Things to Consider when Choosing an Injury Attorney

By Frank Martyn Subscribe to RSS | January 3rd 2012 | Views:

Making sure you have an experienced injury attorney handling your personal injury case is the first step in ensuring that the lawsuit will be resolved to your satisfaction and without undue delay.

Here are five things to consider when looking for an injury attorney:

1) Interview more than one attorney.

Since most personal injury attorneys provide free no obligation consultations, schedule more than one and go in prepared, with a list of questions and/or concerns. Make sure the attorney spends time addressing your issues and observe his behavior during the meeting. Does he seem compassionate, friendly, and knowledgeable? Can he answer your questions and seem experienced with your type of case? How long has he been in practice and how many personal injury cases have he handled? Finding out this information will assist you in making an informed decision concerning your legal representation.

2) Ask around for a recommendation.

You may already know an injury attorney who handled your father’s or friend’s case, but do you know the outcome of the case, how long it took, and whether the injured person was satisfied not only with the result but with the representation? Litigation process, especially in complicated matters may take years and sometimes the attorney/client relationship is so unpleasant and unfriendly that even a favorable outcome does not erase the person’s distaste for his or her counselor. Get the good, the bad and the ugly facts about the attorney and decide what is important for you and what you can overlook.

3) Find the firm familiar with your type of case.

If you were injured in an auto accident, find a firm with auto injury attorney, who handles such matters on a daily basis. While a real estate or commercial firm may have represented auto injury victims, other matters, such as closing or contracts are their bread and butter. On the other hand, attorneys who specialize in auto accidents are up to date on all important legal developments and changes in the law that may affect your case. They review the latest verdicts and familiarize themselves with judicial opinions coming from the bench that may have an influence on their practice.

4) Meet the staff

Get to know the secretaries and paralegals since they will likely answer your calls send you letter, and work on some aspect of your case. They will often be the ones advising the attorney on the case progress, phone calls received on the matter and important deadlines. Make sure these are legal professionals you have confidence in.

5) Check the firm’s website and online reviews

These days you can probably Google anyone and find a wealth of information. An injury attorney may have an up to date website which lists his recent verdicts, client testimonials and areas of practice. Do your homework and read the site before meeting your attorney for the first time. If you have any questions about the content, you can bring it up at your first interview.
