What To Look For In A Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have suffered a personal injury and are seeking the right lawyer to handle your claim, you have a big decision ahead of you. Your future financial well-being hangs in the balance.

Some of the attributes that make for a good personal injury lawyer include:

  • Knowledge: A thorough understanding of the law and the insurance system is a key element in a personal injury practice.
  • Compassion: All the legal skill in the world means little if an attorney doesn't care about his or her clients. Nobody likes to be ignored and kept in the dark. The legal process is much easier to bear when you have an attorney who responds promptly to your phone calls and gives you time and personal attention throughout the process.
  • Reputation: Is your attorney known and respected in the industry? Insurance companies know which lawyers are likely to cave in and which are likely to stand firm and fight for their clients.
  • Experience: With so much on the line, you can't afford an attorney who is learning on the job. Experience tells an attorney what works and what doesn't work.
  • Results: Results speak for themselves. If your lawyer has proven he or she can achieve success in personal injury claims, you can move forward with confidence.

I can't tell you which attorney to choose, but I can tell you I have demonstrated all of these qualities in my decades of experience handling personal injury claims.
