Things to Consider Before Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

The process of hiring a personal injury lawyer can be difficult and it is normal to feel overwhelmed.  A good lawyer will help you win your case, and look out for your interests. There are many issues to consider when choosing a lawyer. Be sure to interview a number of different lawyers to be absolutely sure you find the lawyer who will best handle your case. A good place to start is an internet search using Google, Bing, Yahoo, Avvo, Lawyers.com or other tools to run down information. The following questions are intended to help you in the selection process as you choose the right personal injury attorney.

  • What training do you have in this area of law? Do not be afraid to ask for documentation of education including continuing education. This is a very important part of selecting the right lawyer for your needs.
  • Do you teach this area of practice to other lawyers? A sure sign of a quality lawyer is acceptance as a teacher among peers.
  • What is your work experience in your areas of practice?  Many lawyers dabble in personal injury and wrongful death cases hoping to pull in a case and make a quick settlement. You do not want a divorce lawyer handling your serious personal injury or wrongful death case. Don’t be afraid to ask how many cases the lawyer has taken to trial or arbitration.
  • What is your rate structure? We believe graduated rate structures are a come on and an indication the lawyer is not willing to fight for you.
