How Do I Choose the Right Personal Injury Attorney?

How Many Personal Injury Attorneys Should I Meet Before I Commit?

If you’ve just been injured in an accident, you may have started looking at personal injury attorneys. It is always best to meet with two or three different attorneys at different firms because each case is as unique as the people involved.

1. Experience Matters

Different firms work with different kinds of cases. You want to find an attorney who has experience with your type claim. Does this lawyer do motorcycle accidents or dog bite claims? Your attorney’s experience should match your situation.

2. Communication Matters

You will work closely with the attorney you choose. You need an attorney you like. You need an attorney to whom you can talk openly. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that not every person gets along well with every other person. You need an attorney you like. If you find the attorney annoying or rude, find another one.

3. Price Matters

When meeting with prospective attorneys always ask about their fee agreement. Different firms ask for different things. At The Advocates Law Firm, you do not pay anything unless we receive compensation in your case. Some firms require that clients cover some expenses upfront. It is always a good idea to avoid surprises and understand the fee agreement before you sign a representation letter.

4. You Matter

Personal injury law is all about people. Look for an attorney who will be a good advocate for you. You need to feel like your attorney and the staff of the firm is going to guide you through every step of the personal-injury-claim process. You need to feel that your needs are going to be met. Being injured in an accident makes you vulnerable, and you deserve good representation.
