Find the right personal injury attorneyHave you been involved in an accident that has left you injured or otherwise disabled?

Then you need to consult with an attorney who has experience handling personal injury cases.  When you decide to go looking for such an attorney, be sure to do the following four things:


  • Find firms that understand your specific kind of case – If you are the victim of medical malpractice or a car accident, then it’s import and to find a firm that has attorneys experienced in the area.  Those lawyers will be up-to-date on all important legal developments and changes in the laws that may affect your case.
  • Meet with more than one lawyer –  Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations so it is to your benefit to schedule an interview with more than one lawyer. Make sure you go in with a pre-prepared list of any concerns and questions you may have. Since you will be working closely with the person you choose, it’s also important to assess each lawyer’s skills and personality and ask yourself which would be the best match for you.
  • Talk to a law firm’s staff –  The lawyer you choose will be working with a team of secretaries and paralegals. They will be the ones who advise your attorney on the progress of your case as well as important deadlines.  Make sure these are people you can trust.
  • Get outside reviews of the firm and its attorneys – Do your homework. The Internet is a great place to start. You may be able to find client testimonials or news bulletins online  that can help you determine whether  a particular lawyer is really right for you.
