If you have been injured in an accident, you need an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner; an attorney who knows how to advocate for you and get you the compensation you deserve. With so many attorneys to choose from, here are some tips for finding the right attorney to help you:
1. Practice areas matter!
Find an attorney who practices in the area of “personal injury” law, and who has experience handling cases like yours. You may have a friend who is a great estate planning attorney or divorce lawyer. However, if that attorney is not familiar with handling personal injury cases, they may not be able to adequately represent you.
2. Ask around.
Get referrals from friends or family members who have worked with personal injury attorneys in the past. If you are looking for referrals online, the Texas State Bar Association’s “Find a Lawyer” service can be a great place to start your search for attorneys near you.
3. Do your research.
Review attorneys’ websites to get a feel for their experience and practice areas. Then, interview your finalists. Most attorneys will offer a free consultation, so use that time to ask questions like:
- Has the attorney/firm handled cases like yours before?
- What steps/actions would the attorney/firm take in a case like yours, to get the best result?
- How are fees handled, and what can you expect to pay for services?
- Will the attorney/firm communicate with you regularly on the status of your case?
- Then, ask yourself if you are comfortable working with the particular attorney/law firm.
