How do I Find the Best Personal Injury Lawyer to Represent My Case?
Personal Injury cases are very serious and should be put in the hands of an experienced attorney. Collect some referrals from various sources and compare your options. However, it is important to note that although you can narrow your choices with comparisons, you should never make a decision before meeting the lawyer. Always set up a consultation meeting to discuss your case and see if you feel comfortable working with him or her. Listed below are a few ways to gain some referrals:
Friends and Acquaintances
Talk to your family members, friends or co-workers who have been represented by a lawyer in their own personal injury case. If this person says good things to you about this lawyer, put them on your list of people to consult.
Google, Avvo or Other Lawyer Search Engines
There are countless of online review sites for every type of lawyer. Profiles on these sites give you more information about the lawyer’s experience, education, fees and general philosophy on practicing law. Reviews are posted by current and past clients and they give you more details on their encounters and experience with the attorney along with their case outcomes. Many of our clients here at Marc Lopez Law hired us after reading our reviews on Google and Avvo.
If you know any lawyers, they are great resources to get a referral to an experienced personal injury lawyer. Lawyers commonly refer cases to one another if they feel that someone else would have more knowledge and experience on the legal matter. However, you still do not want to take this referral as the final word, make sure that you meet with this lawyer to assess them on your personal standards as well.
How Do I Ensure that this is the Right Lawyer for Me?
To be positive that you have chosen the right lawyer to represent your case, ask questions! After telling the lawyer what your case is about, interview them. Here are some basic, yet very important questions to ask:
How long have you been in practice?
What percentage of your practice involves personal injury cases?
Do you most often represent plaintiffs or defendants?
Would you be personally handling my case or would you be passing it on to another lawyer in your office?
How many personal injury cases have you taken to trial? What were the results?
How often will you communicate with me?
Will I be able to speak directly with you if I need you?
How many cases are you currently handling? Do you have the time to handle mine?
How long does it typically take to handle a case like mine?
Can I get references from some of your past clients?
What is your contingency fee?
