Personal Injury Attorney
If you've suffered an accident or personal injury, due to no fault of your own, you may find yourself considering a personal injury claim or lawsuit, in which case you'll be looking for a personal injury lawyer. But finding the right PI lawyer to handle your case may have a significant bearing on the outcome, including the amount of any settlement you might receive.
Lawyers for personal injury cases, as with any 'service provider', come in a range of shapes and sizes. You should start by assuming the worst case scenario, that your case might have to go to trial. In which case it's better to start the process with a law firm that has the capability to settle your case, or file a lawsuit and fight your case through the trial process all the way to a jury verdict.
So how do you find a good personal injury attorney?
You can start by researching on the internet. Using Google you can search for 'find a personal injury attorney near me'. Using this search term will usually pull up Google's results for attorneys in your locality, and will also provide you access to reviews left by their clients.
Reading Attorney Reviews
Look closely at the reviews received through Google and look to set the bar at around 3.5 - 4 star minimum (from 5). A personal injury attorney with only a handful of reviews and an average of 4.5 - 5 stars, may be misleading. It's better to look at a law firm with more reviews, even though a couple or more may not be so positive. One-person law firms may only deal with a handful of cases each year and may not have the collective resources and experience to get you the settlement you deserve; whereas a law firm with many reviews likely has a stronger team which can pool resources where necessary, leading to the best possible outcome for your case.
Look For A Free Legal Consultation With A Personal Injury Attorney
There's absolutely no reason why the initial case assessment should cost you money, even though many lawyers do try to charge for the first meeting. Having a free consultation is the first step in engaging a lawyer to represent you in a personal injury claim, and should be a two-way street where the lawyer will be assessing the validity of your case and you will be assessing just how comfortable you feel with the lawyer. So once you've spelled out the details of your accident / injury, and answered the lawyer's questions, don't be afraid to ask questions of your own.
Determine The Legal Cost Obligations
Most personal injury law firms will take a percentage of any successful settlement, a contingent fee usually around 33% - this is normal industry practice. Determine what that percentage is and also, should the case be lost, will you be responsible for any out of pocket or other legal expenses.
Lastly, take a look around the community for evidence of the Law Firm's standing and reputation. Do they have a name you recognize, do they advertise, do they maintain one or more practice locations. All of these are signs of a company in good standing and should help you come to a decision on which law firm to engage to pursue your personal injury / accident claim.
