How To Find A Great Personal Injury Attorney


How To Find A Great Personal Injury AttorneyIf you’ve been injured in an accident, you need an attorney. Attorneys will help prove negligence, battle the insurance companies, and negotiate a fair settlement for your injuries. However, there are some ambulance chasers out there who will make big promises but will not deliver, leaving you holding the bag for your injuries. So before hiring any attorney, you should do your research to make sure that you are hiring a qualified professional.

Be Suspicious Of Big Claims

The average personal injury case will cover damages like medical expenses and lost wages, they will not make you rich. If you meet with a personal injury attorney and they start making big promises of large financial gain from your injury, you should immediately be suspicious. Lawyers who make these kinds of big claims are usually only after your money and will not deliver on any of their promises to help you.

Check With The Florida State Bar

Any qualified attorney will be registered with the Florida State Bar. Before hiring an attorney you should look them up on the Florida State Bar website. If they are not filed with the state bar or are not in good standing with the state bar, they are not qualified to handle your case. Furthermore, the results of an attorney query will also contain any grievances filed against the attorney or their firm for the last ten years. It will also list their experience and educational background so you can understand their qualifications.

Search Them On The Internet

You can also do a simple Google search to determine if they have the qualifications and experience you need. With a Google search you can find news reports on their past cases, reviews from their customers, and any professional affiliations or accommodations. Based on this information, you can make a pretty good assessment whether or not the attorney is qualified to handle your case. If an attorney has good reviews, a positive case history, and professional awards, then you can be sure they will provide good representation in your case.

Consider Their Specialty

Usually on their website, an attorney will have a biography complete with their specialties. Personal injury law firms tend to have a variety of lawyers that have different fields of expertise. Some lawyers are experts at handling wrongful death cases while others shine in product liability cases. Make sure that you are picking someone with niche expertise because all areas of law are very complex and nuanced. You do not want to end up hiring an attorney that will be learning as you go.

Ask The Right Questions

Beyond just discussing your case, ask your attorneys some questions about their background and experience. You should ask them if they’ve handled cases like yours in the past and what were the outcomes of those cases. Ask them about their credentials, professional affiliations, and if they’ve won any awards. You can also ask them for both past client and peer recommendations. Finally, ask them their current caseload and if they have time to make yours a priority.
