What to look for

When considering a personal injury attorney, you should look for:

  • Experience:This is perhaps the most obvious factor, but it’s also crucial. The practice of law is often quite different than the theory of it. You need a personal injury attorney who has ample experience with the real-life details of the legal system, who understands how the process works.
  • Flexibility:“Personal injury law” is a broad term encompassing a wide range of case areas, so it’s important you find an attorney who has a proven track record in the case type that is relevant to you. An attorney who is primarily experienced with auto accidents is a personal injury lawyer, but his experience might not be relevant to you if you were hurt as a result of medical malpractice, for example.
  • Personal Connection:This factor is harder to quantify on a resume, but you’ll know it when you find it, and it is crucial. You need to feel comfortable with the personal injury lawyer you’ve chosen. Your initial consultation is an excellent opportunity for you to take the measure of the attorney and his or her practice. That consultation should be free, and you should use your time with the attorney to ask blunt questions about his or experience level and what you can expect from him or her during your case.
