Choosing Legal Representation After An Accident

 

Who you choose to represent you after a very serious accident can make a tremendous difference on how your case comes out. Many injury victims retain a family friend who has been recommended to them as an attorney, only to find out that the person really does not have substantial personal injury experience and may well be over their head in the case.

 

That usually occurs after the insurance company has made an offer to the attorney and litigation then becomes necessary. Unfortunately for lot of people, the fact that they may not have hired the right legal counsel sometimes does not come to light until a lawsuit is necessary and sometimes the case has been languishing for months.

 

Changing attorneys is not an easy process and is also one that is usually not the best choice for injury victims. The best course of action is to be very cautious and proactive in selecting the personal injury attorney initially to avoid problems later on.

 

In some cases where the injury is not very serious and recovery happens fairly quickly such as a soft tissue case, who you select as the personal injury attorney probably is not that critical. However when you get into more sophisticated factual patterns such as serious injury involving such things as and operated spine, fractures and amputations, who you select can be very important to your case.

 

Serious injury cases can vary in expense depending on the type of case it is and for some cases such as product liability and some truck accident litigation the out-of-pocket expenses to the law firm can be significant. It is important that you hire an accident law firm that can fund the litigation without concern. If the attorney you choose does not have the financial backing to adequately fund your case it can potentially impact the value and more importantly, how the insurance company values the risk.

 

I always suggest that families speak to several different law firms and do so in person if they can to determine who may be best suited to help them with their injury claims.
