5 Qualities to Look for in a Personal Injury Attorney

If you have been injured and are considering filing a personal injury claim, one of the first steps to take is to find a personal injury attorney. However, all attorneys are not equal. Selecting the right personal injury attorney could be the difference between settling your case for far less than it is worth, and receiving fair compensation.

Here are 5 qualities to look for in a personal injury attorney:

  1. Experience. You want to make sure you hire an attorney who has significant experience in personal injury law. You also want someone who has ample experience practicing personal injury law within your state. Each state has its own unique laws, so experience in your state is crucial.
  2. Specialization. It might be tempting to have your family attorney represent you. However, you really want a attorney who specializes in personal injury law to handle this type of case. Attorneys who specialize in personal injury law deal with these specific issues everyday. They will be able to handle your case more effectively than someone who does not specifically practice personal injury law.
  3. Good Reputation in the Community. The reputation your attorney carries speaks volumes about how he/she will handle your case. You want to hire an an attorney who has a good reputation with other law firms, insurance companies and the court systems where they practice.
  4. Personal Attention. Your attorney should see you as a valued client, not as just another number. You want an attorney who spends time getting to know you and understanding your case, who works to get you the compensation you deserve. When you meet with your attorney, make sure he/she is engaged and interested in what you have to say. You don’t want to be stuck with someone who is simply trying to settle your case as quickly as possible.
  5. Comfort and Confidence. Are you comfortable with the attorney? After meeting them, did you feel that they would be able to handle your case well? Your gut instinct after your interaction with an attorney is not something to ignore. You should leave your consultation with a clear understanding of how your case will be handled and realistic expectations for the process. You should also leave feeling comfortable with the attorney and confident in his/her abilities.
