If you have been injured in an auto accident or you may have a case for personal injury, you need the right attorney. Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney will provide you with legal representation for your case. It our job to make sure you are properly represented in court. They negotiate with insurance companies to provide you with a fair settlement. If you are in need of a good personal injury attorney, here are some helpful steps to follow.
The sign of a bad attorney is when they are contacting you about a case. It is illegal for an attorney to contact you without your consent. People may provide you with a referral, but the attorney cannot call you first. It is vital to search for an attorney you know you can trust.
Watch out for an attorney that asks for payment up-front. Most personal injury cases will have a free consultation and payment arrangements will be discussed. In most situations, the attorney will ask for a percentage of your settlement. This saves you from paying them up-front, and it makes it easier to pay them since it is deducted from the settlement.
There is no guarantee that your case will be settled outside of court. Do you have an attorney that can take the case to court and can win? You need a person that has confidence in their abilities. A good attorney will have no problem going to court. Their actual trial experience can make a massive difference on your case. When you hire a person that is known for winning in the court room, it can push insurance companies to settle.
How quickly does the law firm respond to your phone calls and emails? A skilled law firm cares about their clients. They communicate frequently with their clients and make sure all of their questions are answered. How many attorneys are employed by the company? How many cases are each of them currently handling? Will they have time to handle your case? Do they have plenty of paralegals to gather information and assist with the cases? Is it easy to schedule a meeting with your attorney?
