What To Look For When Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney
It can seem overwhelming when deciding to hire a personal injury lawyer. Almost every attorney 'handles' personal injury cases but that does not mean they are the right attorney for you. Experience is the first attribute you should consider when speaking with a lawyer about your case. Do they have a wealth of experience handling only personal injury cases or are they a general practice firm that takes the occasional injury case when they come in? Do they have experience handling the type of accident cases that pertain to you? If you were injured due to medical malpractice it makes sense to work with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Trial experience is very important as well. While it is true that many personal injury claims culminate via settlement some end up being elevated to the litigation phase. There is a huge difference between a lawyer who will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf vs. an attorney who will go up against the same insurance companies defense attorneys in court.
