What to Look For In An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

man researching personal injury lawyers on his laptopWhen you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, contacting a personal injury attorney is imperative. For many people, the time following the occurrence of an accident is a difficult one, filled with medical bills, missed work, and emotional and physical recovery. As a result, it can be challenging to take on the task of finding a personal injury attorney to represent you.

Knowing how to look for a personal injury lawyer and what specific qualifications to look for in a successful personal injury attorney can help make the process of finding a lawyer to represent you after a car accident, slip and fall accident, construction site accident, dog bite accident, or any other type of incident much easier. Working with an experienced attorney can make all the difference when it comes to getting you the compensation you deserve following your involvement in an accident.

What Factors Should You Consider When Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle Your Case?

How can you ensure that you’re working with an experienced personal injury lawyer who is capable of helping you obtain the compensation you are entitled to?

Consider the following criteria when working to identify a reliable, capable personal injury lawyer.

What is the “track record” of the attorney?

Has he had a number of multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements in personal injury cases? Has he had years of experience handling them? Look at the websites of local attorneys—what does the biography of the attorney tell you? What does the website content tell you about the areas of practice and the results obtained?

Do other attorneys trust his expertise and refer personal injury cases to him to handle?

Attorneys who are highly regarded by their peers in the industry are often a reliable choice.

Does he speak at bar association programs on continuing legal education?

Educational speaking engagements and participation in other continuing education events shows that an attorney is experienced, knowledgable, and likely regarded as an expert in his field. It also showcases the fact that the lawyer is up to date on and updates and changes going on in his field.

Has he been recognized as a successful advocate by ratings organizations such as Super Lawyers?

Accolades, honors, and recognitions from professional organizations and institutions are an indication that a lawyer is an expert in his field.

Will he provide personalized attention?

Will you be able to call and discuss your case when you desire? If you want personalized attention and a lawyer that will work closely with you, consider retaining a small law firm. (Learn more about the benefits of working with a small law firm here.)
