How do I find a personal injury lawyer?
How do you find a personal injury lawyer? If you want to find a personal injury attorney, talk to friends and relatives. Ask for referrals. Look online. And do your research.
Speak to an attorney who has personal injury experience. Ask the attorney how many cases has he tried in front of a jury because the insurance companies know which lawyers will go to court and which lawyers won’t. The attorney who takes cases to court is one whose client won’t be pushed around or taken advantage of.
So ask the attorney for his experience. Has he handled an accident case such as yours? Was it an eighteen-wheeler? Was it a rear-end collision? Is it products liability? Did the equipment fail? Why did the accident happen?
It’s vital that you research the attorney’s track record, both in terms of how many cases he’s taken to court and how many trials he’s won. Additionally, you need to make sure that his experience is in your specific area.
An attorney that specializes in veterans’ affairs may be very skilled and have years of experience, but his effectiveness at prosecuting personal injury cases is probably very limited.
Personal injury cases are incredibly complex. Any attorney you hire needs to be prepared to deal with that complexity effectively. A lot of times, when there is a serious injury, there are a lot of complications that come up dealing with the facts about why it happened or how it happened.
It’s easy to get bogged down in the details. Especially if the attorney doesn’t have much experience or has spent years working in another specialization.
The attorney really needs to have the experience to dig deeper and find out what really happened. So if you have been injured offshore in a car wreck or a defective product, I’ll be more than happy to answer your questions.
