Find a Personal Injury Attorney Who Has Experience in Your Particular Type of Case
The first thing to do is to look for attorneys who are in your area and have experience with your particular type of case. For example, if you need help with a drowning accident you would not want to work with an attorney who specializes in car accidents. Once you have located a few options, move on to the next step.
Look at Testimonials from Past Clients
Next, look at testimonials left from past clients. What do they have to say? What kind of results did they get? Did they like the communication style? It is a given that an attorney is not going to post any negative testimonials on their website. That does not mean that they are not useful. Think about the most important factors you want in an attorney and see if the testimonials mention those qualities. If they do then you may have found the right attorney.
Consider Peer Reviews
The fact of the matter is that for many clients, the personal injury attorney they work with will be the first personal injury attorney they have worked with. They may not know what to expect or how this type of attorney should be able to help them. They may get what they feel is a great settlement even if it is not. This is why peer reviews are important.
If other attorneys are proud to recommend an attorney then you know they are respected by their peers. You know they are providing good legal services and that you can trust them.
Ask for Case Settlements and Jury Verdicts
Finally, make sure that you ask to see examples of case settlements and jury verdicts. Look at the case settlements to see if they see appropriate. Consider the jury verdicts for the same. Do not accept an attorney who is only willing to show you either their case settlements or their jury verdicts. While 95% of cases are settled before going to court, you want an attorney who is not afraid to go to court if necessary.
