Selecting a Personal Injury Attorney

 

After a serious accident or the loss of a loved one, one of the last things you want to do is worry about a lawsuit. It is, however, the time when it is sometimes very important that you obtain help of a successful and reputable personal injury attorney. Often, an accident scene or the instrumentalities or equipment involved are critical to being able to present a case and it is important in those instances that the evidence is preserved and inspected early.

 

Some considerations when selecting a personal injury attorney are:

 

*Experience–experience matters and in some instances such as complex personal injury litigation like product liability or 18-wheeler accidents is very important that you find an attorney who handles these types of cases routinely.

 

*Track record–just as experience counts, another consideration is the prior results of the attorney with similar type cases. Past cases are no predictor of future results but they can give you an idea on the size and scope of cases the attorney is used to handling.

 

* Communications–is the attorney you have contacted available to you by telephone? Are you speaking with the lawyer or a legal assistant? Does the firm handle a large volume of cases such that you may get lost in the shuffle? All these are good questions to ask.

 

*Relationship–after meeting the attorney you are considering do you feel comfortable with him or her? A personal injury lawsuit can be a very lengthy process and it is vital that you are able to trust and believe your representative. If you don’t have a good feeling after meeting the attorney it may be best to look elsewhere.

 

Who you choose to represent you after serious personal injury accident or when you are considering a wrongful death lawsuit for the loss of a loved one is a very important choice for you and your family. The more serious the case, the more important the choice of attorney.
