Find the best injury attorney to represent you in your claim for compensation for personal injuries, car accidents, medical bills, property damage and other damages. A good personal injury attorney will have extensive experience handling cases like yours, and will know how to fight the insurance companies who are trying to get you to accept a lower settlement.
Some attorneys work with large established firms, while others have their own personal injury practice. While working with a larger firm has its advantages, it can also slow down case movement. Choosing a lawyer with a smaller firm may be quicker and more convenient, but make sure the attorney is capable of handling your case properly.
You should always comparison-shop when looking for a personal injury lawyer to handle your case. A great way to do this is to ask friends, family, coworkers and other people in your community for recommendations. Then, talk (via phone or video call) with several lawyers and meet them in person before making a decision.
Another factor to consider is whether the attorney has been a member of legal organizations that specialize in representing injured clients. These groups often sponsor legal publications and conduct lobbying activities for the rights of consumers. Also, ask about the lawyer’s policy on expense reimbursement in case of a loss. Some attorneys will reimburse expenses, while others expect the client to cover them. This is an important question to ask because it will affect your overall financial picture if the case is lost.
