How to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer and Get The Compensation You Actually Deserve

Slide2:

Insurance company representatives are usually quick to help pay for your car’s damage and immediate medical bills. But stop. Wait a second. Why are they so fast about it? Insurance is a for-profit industry, and they maximize their profits by paying people like you as little as they can get away with. It’s very likely they owe you more than they are offering. And they are quick to make that low offer, because once you accept it, you can’t just go back later and let them know you’ve got more ongoing bills from your accident, even though you do. That’s their trick .

Hire a Personal Injury Attorney (Here’s our advice. If you want to know how to find the best injury lawyer for you and your family, read on…)

Assess Your Own Situation:

Assess Your Own Situation 661-945-6969 Think about what hurts. You don’t have to say it out loud if you don’t want to, at least not at first. But you should really take an honest look and see whether you’ll be back to the doctor for more checkups because of this injury. Always seek medical attention, even if you think you’re fine. After you receive medical attention following your accident, that’s the time to call a PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER.

Slide5:

What You Should Look For in an Attorney

Trial Experience:

Trial Experience 661-945-6969 This is extremely valuable experience. So don’t go to a law firm that can’t point to several years’ worth of trial victories and large settlements. Their website is an easy way to tell. Lawyers that have such experience will post specific examples and testimonials on their website. Not having any such trial experience on their website doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t have any to speak of, but why risk it when so many lawyers do?

Reputation:

Reputation 661-945-6969 Go to review sites. Check the law firm out on Avvo and Yelp. Take a look at their Facebook page. What are their actual clients saying about them?

Specialization:

Specialization 661-945-6969 Every single car accident is unique. Specific experience is a must. Many small law firms specialize in very specific types of accidents and injuries, like those involving bicycles or motorcycles. Larger firms will have a varied team with a wide range of particular specializations. Make sure you contact an attorney who can do what you yourself need done.

Organized Processes:

Organized Processes 661-945-6969 Most lawyers will offer a free consultation to discuss the details with you. During this consultation, you can ask about their process. If they can describe the specific actions they will take and why, then you can trust them.

Transparency:

Transparency 661-945-6969 Every case has advantages and challenges. If a lawyer tells you “it’s in the bag” and offers no description of potential roadblocks, you may be dealing with a salesman and not an attorney. Every law firm should also be able to make the financials very clear up front. The last thing you want after winning a settlement is surprises that cost you more than you thought you’d have to pay.

Slide11:

What You Should Avoid from an Attorney

Bad Communication:

Bad Communication 661-945-6969 No communication is not the same as bad communication… Bad communication is where you are led to believe one thing when the reality is something different.

Secrecy:

Secrecy 661-945-6969 If you ask a question and the attorney dodges it or declares that you’ll be informed later on, question the motives. Why any attorney should hide things from a client is a mystery.

Scam Artists:

Scam Artists 661-945-6969 If you have the feeling that the lawyer you’re talking to is out for his or her own personal gain and not after your best interests, you should trust that feeling and walk away.

Prolonged Timeline with No Estimation of Completion:

Prolonged Timeline with No Estimation of Completion 661-945-6969 If your attorney can’t even give you a ballpark figure or at the very least describe the step of the process your case is in, it’s possible they don’t know and don’t want to admit it.

Failure to Properly Analyze the Case from the beginning:

Failure to Properly Analyze the Case from the beginning 661-945-6969 If your case has too many surprise challenges, and you find yourself answering questions that could have been asked from the onset, it’s conceivable your case was evaluated incorrectly

Poor Communication When Challenges Arise:

Poor Communication When Challenges Arise 661-945-6969 If something comes up to cause an issue or when you need to provide something and you aren’t notified, that causes delays and makes things difficult for all parties involved.
