There are a few things you should consider when hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer.
Fact is that insurers, insurance adjusters and insurance defense lawyers is a small community. The lawyer you select will have an impact. The more experienced and reputable the firm is will have a direct result in the negotiation and ultimately the final resolution of your matter. Check with friends and family about experiences that they have had. A little research can go a long way in the resolution of your claim.
2. Ask Questions
When you meet with the lawyer ask questions about the process and what they foresee in terms of not just the final outcome but how they will get to that outcome. A good Personal Injury practitioner will be able to map out for you, in broad terms, what they foresee as the roadmap to resolving your claim. Test the lawyer for knowledge about your specific injuries.
3. Team vs. Individual
Two minds are better than one. That is no different when you are selecting counsel for your Personal Injury matter. A firm with a number of lawyers practicing in Personal Injury is a boon for you as the client. It is essentially additional lawyers and experience that your lawyer has the ability to talk to while resolving your claim.
4. Fee Structure
Who is covering the costs of your litigation? Will the lawyer be covering the disbursements or is the client responsible for the costs of disbursements?
