The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Attorney In A Personal Injury Lawsuit

When it comes to any type of court case, you want to have an excellent lawyer. Hiring a personal injury attorney is no different. Like any other type of case, you need to have a lawyer who is going to aim to hit a home run out of the park. You do not want just any lawyer to represent you because, with all of the work that goes into these cases, you need to be 100% sure that your lawyer knows what he or she is doing and can build a really strong case for you in the courtroom. After all, the verdict is largely decided based upon the lawyer's behavior in the courtroom – whether anyone will admit it or not.

You may be asking, "Well, what if I don't hire an excellent personal injury attorney? What then?" For one thing, you can expect to lose your case or at least come close to losing it. You need a lawyer who is going to do all of the leg work that is required of any court case: gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, double-checking facts, etc. There is no court case in existence where the lawyer can expect to build a proper case for their client if they do not do some research. A good lawyer will always do this, while a not so good lawyer will probably do very little research at all.

In order to avoid hiring a bad personal injury attorney, you, the client, should also do some research. Depending on how big the area is where you live, there are likely several lawyers who specialize in this area of the law. Simply ask around to see who has a good reputation for winning and who doesn't. Sadly, while a lawyer may be a somewhat decent one, if they do not have a reputation for winning their cases, then you need to look elsewhere. Whether you win or lose will depend on the argument that your lawyer makes on your behalf, so you need one who can do that very well.

In the event that you do hire a personal injury attorney who you feel did not represent you to the best of their abilities, you do have some options. For one thing, you can sue the lawyer for not properly representing you. Keep in mind that you will have to, yet again, find a good lawyer to represent you because whether you prevail in that case will greatly rely on the lawyer's arguments on your behalf.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
