When you’ve been hurt, it’s bad enough just dealing with your injury and medical treatment. You don’t need the added pressure of having to fight with the other party’s insurance. A good personal injury attorney can help. Here are some tips for choosing the right one for you.

  1. Find out about their experience. Don’t just hire the first lawyer you come across. It’s important to make sure that your attorney has handled plenty of personal injury cases in the past with success. In addition, when meeting with a prospective attorney for your case, ask them if they’ve handled cases similar to yours and how those cases turned out.
  2. Choose someone who specializes in personal injury law. While an attorney whose firm focuses on other areas of law may be able to muddle through the process of representing you, personal injury cases have many special circumstances. These issues just won’t be familiar to attorneys who don’t handle them frequently.
  3. Look into their reputation. You can check with your state’s bar association to get access to a lawyer’s records. This will tell you if they’ve been sanctioned or reprimanded for unethical behavior.
  4. Hire an attorney who’s a good fit. Personal injury cases can take a long time so it’s important to make sure you hire a personal injury attorney who’s a good fit. Pay attention to how they treat you. If they treat you with respect and make you feel comfortable, it’s a good sign. If they seem to be rushing you—or rushing your case toward a quick settlement so they can move on to the next one—you’re likely better off elsewhere.
