A personal injury attorney is a lawyer who specializes in getting compensation for a person who has been injured due to someone else’s negligence. This article explains the best way to find a high-quality injury attorney.
The first thing to do is to ask trusted loved ones for referrals. If a family member or friend has been in a similar situation, then they can guide you to the right attorney for your needs.
If your family and friends come up empty, take a look at online reviews. See who has the highest rating, and how different law firms handle bad online reviews.
You also need to make sure the lawyer operates in personal injury law. You don’t want an inexperienced attorney. You need someone with practical legal knowledge. It’s also a good idea to look at a potential attorney’s track record. If they have a lot of experience but also lose a lot, they may not be the best bet.
You also need to discuss fees with potential attorneys. Most personal injury attorneys operate on contingency fees. This means you don’t have to pay unless the lawyer is successful at winning you a settlement. The percentage they take from the settlement can vary based on the difficulty of the case.
