5 Things to Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer

Injury Accident Attorneys

It’s quite common to get injured. Even if you’re careful, there might be someone or something that can get you in harm’s way. When this happens, there is a chance that you can claim damages for the pain and inconvenience the injury caused you. If you think that someone is responsible for your injury, a great personal injury lawyer can help you get compensated properly.

What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a professional that takes personal injury cases. They provide services like legal counsel, representation, and investigation in cases where a person is injured because of the negligence of another entity. For personal injury cases, your lawyer can fight a person or an entity (like a corporation) that is responsible for the incident.
The main goal of a personal injury lawyer is to help you get compensated properly. This should include payment for your medical bills, your missed days at work, and even for the pain and suffering, you have received during your injury. It’s also the responsibility of the lawyer to make sure that their client gets what they deserve in terms of damages and treatment during the lawsuit.

What the Best Personal Injury Lawyers Have in Common

Just by knowing the duties of a personal injury lawyer, you know that a lot of pressure is on their shoulders. At the same time, a lot of expertise is demanded of them for their client to win the case. If you are on the hunt for a personal injury lawyer, here are 5 things you should look for.

1. Focus on Personal Injury Cases

Although there are a lot of lawyers who can take on different kinds of cases, you must pick someone who has a focus on personal injury cases. This is because there are far too many lawyers who are jack-of-all-trades but end up being masters of none. Start your case right by picking someone you know has expertise in cases like yours.

2. Good Recommendations

If you don’t know where to start, consult friends and the Internet. Research on the best personal injury lawyers in your area and know why they are the best. One of the ways you’ll know a lawyer is good is if their former clients think highly of them.
If you’re going to search the Internet for lawyers, be aware of reviews that are fake. There are cases when users are just bots that give good reviews. Try to be keen enough to spot sincere reviews that talk about the lawyer’s expertise and their personal experience going through the case.

3. History of Going to Court

Although a lot of personal injury cases end with a settlement, be extra careful by choosing a lawyer who knows how to represent a client in court. Settlements and trials are very different from each other with the latter being a lot more stressful. Also, there are many processes and etiquette involved in going to court which not all lawyers know. To help you feel more assured about your case’s outcome, hire someone who is good at settlements and trials.

4. History of Winnings or Getting High Settlements

When it comes to personal injury cases, the person at fault and the insurance company can choose to give you a settlement just so you avoid going to court. However, there are parties that try to give you the lowest settlement possible. Because you are the victim in this scenario, you shouldn’t let the chance of getting properly compensated getaway.
There are many experienced lawyers who do not have a good track record when it comes to the value of the settlements. To make the most out of your case, hire someone who can make your million-dollar case worth it.

5. A Sense of Trust

And last but definitely not least is the sense of trust they give. When it comes to this trait, you have to rely on your gut to tell you if you are comfortable with the lawyer. Sure, the credentials and the history help in forming your trust, but at the end of the day, you will know if you are comfortable with a few of your options. Make sure that you pick someone who you can have full confidence in.

Personal injury lawyers are not hard to find, but if you want the best lawyer then you should be more critical of your choices. Not only will they be your legal representatives, but they will also be your confidants for everything that is related to your case.

5 stars just isnt enough for Andrew Marcantel, Marc Victor, and the entire staff here.When my... boyfriend was wrongly accused of a totally vile crime, neither of us had any experience navigating the "just-us" system.If you've faced potentially life-altering accusations, and you feel like the system is set up to empower police, prosecutors, judges, and pretty much everyone except you, then you're right! If you want to level the playing feild, Attorneys for Freedom will accomplish that.Some others have commented about the price. Good representation does cost money, unfortunately. What is a persons future worth?Compared to the competition, which is also expensive, the value you will get at this law firm is just unbelievable. Andrew especially is so great at walking you through possible scenerios, guiding you through important decisions, and has the experience to truly get good results. Extremely knowledgeable and creative not just "aggressive". He is also an excellent communicator, both in the office and in the court.Speaking of communication, the paralegal team at even some more expensive law firms will leave you wondering what it is they are paid to do. This is not the case at Attorneys for Freedom. Ashley Crispino and Kaylie Kline did an amazing job at both keeping us in the loop and being available when needed.Reading "Case Dismissed" after what felt like an eternity of fighting was the best outcome we could have ever asked for.I told my Aunt who was very worried about us at the height of all the absurdity that I felt like having Andy on our side was better than prayer. And I was right.read more

This is my first time ever needing an attorney and my attorney was Kate and she did an amazing job... with my case! Kate took time to go through all of the evidence so she understood everything before going to court. Kate assistant Madalyn was also super helpful and very sweet! Anytime I called she was very understanding and helped me walk through the process when I did not understand something and always had an upbeat positive attitude! If I ever need an attorney again I will definitely being going back to Kate!read more
