Reasons You Should Choose Your Personal Injury Attorney Wisely
If you need to hire a Naples law firm to help you with a personal injury case, you’ll want to make sure you choose the attorney that’s best suited to represent you. And, much like when you hire a roofer or contractor, taking your time, doing your homework and making an informed decision can mean the difference between making an OK choice and making a great one.
For this post, we wanted to talk about some of the things you should consider before you decide which firm to go with.
Several months ago, one of our clients told us about an experience her friend had when he was wanting to convert his work visa to a green card. When he went to the lawyer’s office he came across more than a few red flags. First, the attorney was also running a travel agency and part-time tax service out of his office. Second, the man admitted that while he’d worked on a handful of immigration cases in the past, he had never worked on this exact type of case before. Suffice to say, her friend went with a different firm.
If you’ve sustained a slip-and-fall injury, want to pursue a medical malpractice claim or you’ve been injured in a car or motorcycle accident, you’ll want to hire a lawyer who is experienced with (and has a deep understanding of) personal injury law. The firm you hire should also have a has a proven track record of getting their clients the compensation they deserve.
If the lawyer you’re speaking to only “dabbles” in personal injury litigation (and dedicates most of their practice to focusing on matters such as divorce or copyright infringement), they may not be the best person to handle your case.
Check online reviews
Online reviews are for more than bars, restaurants and hair salons. In the modern world, online reviews exist for just about everything- including legal services. Again, if you’re thinking about pursuing a personal injury case, you’ll want to hire an attorney who is experienced and knowledgeable.
Online reviews can provide a wealth of information about their practice, how well the lawyer communicated with past clients, and how happy past clients were with the level of service they received.
