What to Look for in a Personal Injury Lawyer

When you have been injured through the negligence of another party, you want the lawyer representing you to have the skills and knowledge to get you the compensation you deserve. Because there are so many lawyers practicing in each state (almost 200,000 in California alone), you should limit your search as follows:
  • Choose a lawyer whose practice focuses on personal injury law.
  • Choose someone who not only negotiates settlements, but who also has litigation and trial experience.
  • Choose a lawyer with experience handling your particular type of claim.
  • Choose a lawyer with a proven record of success advocating on behalf of injured clients.

3 Tips for Picking the Best Personal Injury Lawyer in Gilroy, Morgan Hill, or Hollister

1) Look into Their Experience & Focus Areas
When selecting an attorney or law firm for your car accident or personal injury claim, look for an attorney with years of experience in personal injury law so you know they understand what to do and how to help you with your unique circumstances.

2) Check Their Reputations & Personalities
A huge tip when looking for a personal injury attorney is choosing an attorney/firm that has a good reputation. When looking into firms, make sure to do some extra digging to find out what other people think of them and how easy it is to work with them. Finding a lawyer with a good reputation and is easy to work with can help produce results.

3) Ask Questions
Take advantage of the opportunity to voice your concerns and figure out the best plan for you and for your situation. Meet with the attorney before making a decision. Every attorney’s office should be able to answer the following questions:
  • Have you taken on cases like mine in the past?
  • How soon can I expect my case to be resolved?
  • Will I only be working with one attorney, or with a team?
  • How do you charge your clients? Do you charge an hourly rate or a contingency fee?
