How do I choose a personal injury attorney?
Who you choose as your attorney is very important because it sets up the entire experience for you and the ultimate outcome. Just because an attorney says they are personal injury attorney does not mean they’re qualified. It does not mean they’re qualified for you or your particular case. They have to know about the area of law, they have to know about the type of accident and they have to understand the ramifications of your particular injury. You shouldn’t just accept the fact that they say, “Oh yes, I’ve done many of those cases and I’m qualified.” Just because they say it doesn’t make it true. You shouldn’t accept it on face value. Ask them questions and you should not accept inferior or half-hearted representation. You need somebody who is going to zealously fight on your behalf, who will be your champion and your advocate all the way through the litigation, in the courtroom to the jury and after.
