How do I find a personal injury lawyer?
How do I find a personal injury lawyer? Whenever hiring a personal injury firm, I think one thing that’s important to do, is to look for a firm who is going to be comfortable handling a trial. The reason for that is not that all cases go to trial, in fact, most cases settle.
The important part is you want somebody that’s willing to go to trial because insurance companies know who’s willing to go to trial and who’s not. Insurance companies are more likely to give better compensation to an attorney who’s willing to go to trial if necessary.
The second thing is to meet with a lawyer. Go meet with two or three lawyers. Find somebody that you’re comfortable with. Find a staff and a group of people that appear to have your best interests at heart, who are willing to listen to you and all the nuances of your case.
Lastly, find somebody who’s willing to get to know you as a person. Personal injury cases aren’t just cases, they’re not just paper files, human beings are involved in each and every one of these cases. Find someone who’s willing to know you as a human being and, therefore, get to know your case better.
