When you are in an auto collision, many emotions can take hold: pain, anger, and a sense of being overwhelmed. What can and should you do? You should contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can work for you so you can fully focus on your physical and emotional wellbeing.

 

Five Things to Look for in An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney

 

1.  Reputation  

In short, experienced personal injury lawyers win more cases. As a result, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney with a reputation for success increases your chances of getting you the compensation you deserve, whether by a settlement or at trial. An experience personal injury attorney prides him/herself on their successes and his/her reputation for substantial financial recoveries is likely a reason you contacted them in the first place. While any personal injury attorney will say that they will take a one third contingency fee, not all attorneys will provide the same level of service and success. To have the best chance of getting the compensation you deserve, you should hire an experienced personal injury attorney who is recognized by his/her peers and wins the tough cases. The one-third contingency fee is standard, but an experienced personal injury attorney with an excellent reputation is unique and is more likely to secure better results. You should hire an experienced personal injury attorney with a reputation for getting clients the compensation they deserve. 

 

2. Knowledge

No two collisions are the same, but an experienced personal injury attorney will have expertise and knowledge to properly analyze any type of accident. Every situation or set of circumstances will likely require a unique approach, aimed at maximizing the value of the recovery for the injured person. Therefore, you should hire someone that you are confident possesses the breadth of knowledge about intricate areas of personal injury law, dealing with insurance companies, case valuation, and settlement negotiation that comes with valuable experience.

 

3. Resources

An experienced personal injury attorney will work to judicially use his/her resources to best further your case. An experienced personal injury attorney will make the necessary investments to successfully prosecute your case and will not charge case costs to a client unless they make a monetary recovery whether by settlement or verdict at trial. An experienced personal injury attorney may use his or her resources and expertise to hire qualified and vetted experts needed to prove aspects of your claim as well as trusted and experienced investigators to preserve evidence and provide detailed and case focused analysis necessary to get you the compensation you deserve. 

 

4. Reliability 

Recent experience has shown all of us just how easily our lives can become upended, the same is true when you are involved in a motor vehicle collision. The good thing is you can rely on an experienced personal injury attorney to get you the compensation you deserve. Unexpected events in a case require adjustment, whether it be virtual trials during a pandemic or a change in strategy in an ongoing personal injury case when new information comes to light. An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to react to the unexpected and will reliably work on your behalf. If an experienced personal injury attorney knows anything, it is most certainly flexibility and evolving with the times and their clients’ needs. You should always feel that you can rely on an experienced personal injury attorney. 

 

5. Compassion

As mentioned, emotions can run high after a collision, leaving you in a swirl of confusion, injuries, paperwork, and phone calls. You might be afraid that you could not win a case or may not even really know if you have a case. The idea of a trial might intimidate you, and the complexity of personal injury law does not help ease your nerves. You need a compassionate and experienced personal injury attorney: someone who will advocate for you and champion your best interests with compassion. Someone who will keep you updated on your case, but deal with the daily intricacies that you do not need to focus on while you physically recover from your collision.
