What should I look for in a personal injury attorney?
When hiring a personal injury attorney, you want to be sure the attorney extensive experience in the area of personal injury. Experience is not just the number of years you’ve been practicing, but also the number of cases experienced in the particular field of personal injury. Personal injury also has a unique set of laws, and a lawyer that is in general practice may not necessarily understand the nuances involved in representing somebody in a personal injury lawsuit.
You also want to look for a lawyer that has the resources to take on insurance companies. One of the most important aspects of hiring a personal injury lawyer is to make sure that they can fund the case.
In addition, you’ll want to look at their trial experience. Does that lawyer go to trial? How many trials has that lawyer had? A lot of lawyers practice in the area of personal injury, but very few have trial experience. That’s important because when insurance companies evaluate claims, they often look at who the lawyer is, what their experience is, and are they willing to take the case all the way to trial. If so, can they try the case effectively? Those things are looked at by insurance companies in their claim evaluations. And when you have an experienced lawyer that has the resources to back the litigation, you’re more likely to get a fair settlement with an insurance company.
