Finding A Personal Injury Attorney

What should you look for in a personal injury attorney?

Choosing a personal injury attorney is one of the most important decisions you will make in your personal injury lawsuit. A good personal injury attorney will be able to achieve far superior results; this is not an area in which you want to compromise. You should consider many factors when selecting a personal injury attorney.

You know how to find some personal injury attorneys; you’ve seen their T.V. ads during the day. But where else can you look to find a personal injury attorney? It will take some research, but it’s worth it when it comes to finding the right personal injury attorney to handle your case. A good personal injury attorney will reduce the stress of litigation and obtain the maximum settlement or trial verdict for you.

The State Bar: Many state bar associations keep a list of attorneys on their website. You can try limiting a serach at a state bar website for personal injury attorneys only (some websites don't have this option.) One advantage of this approach is that you can also check the standing of the personal injury attorney with the bar, since many states publish disciplinary records.

Friends, Family, Neighbors: A good personal injury attorney doesn't need to do a lot of advertising, because he or she has developed a strong client base which constantly results in new client referrals. Ask a friend, family member, co-worker, or anyone else whose opinion you trust if they know of a good personal injury attorney. You may hear many horror stories, but you might get that valuable tip you’re looking for to direct you to a good personal injury attorney.

Phonebook: Don’t forget to check the yellow pages, which usually list attorneys by subcategories. There will be lots of phone calls to make but it is worth your time.
