If you’ve been injured in a car accident, whether it be a minor fender bender or a major crash, you’re going to want an experienced automobile accident lawyer on your side to help maximize your compensation while you focus on getting healthy. Hopefully you’ve never needed an accident attorney in the past, but even if you have, trying to find the right one in the days after an accident can be hectic unless you know what to look for.
We want to help take some of the stress off your plate and ease your search for a car accident lawyer. Below, we share some key tips to keep in mind when looking for the best accident lawyer following your automobile injury.
Finding The Right Car Accident Lawyer
When it comes to hiring the right car accident lawyer, here are some points of emphasis to keep in mind when talking to different firms.
Specific Experience – Any accident law firm can talk your ear off about the cases they’ve won, but what experience do they have handling cases very similar to yours? Maybe you were a pedestrian struck by a vehicle, you are a motorcyclist run off the road by a texting driver, or you were rear-ended when the car behind you hit a patch of ice. Be specific about your case when talking with prospective lawyers, because while no two cases are the same, you’re going to want a firm who has handled a number of similar cases.
Access To Experts – At Margolis Law Firm, one thing that we believe puts us ahead of the competition when it comes to getting compensation for accident victims is our access to experts. Many cases come down to your word versus their word, and while an attorney can help make your case, at the end of the day it can be tough for a judge or jury to decipher fact from fiction. However, we have a number of impartial experts that we can call on to help prove your version of events. From medical experts to accident reconstruction experts, we have connections in the industry to help prove your story.
Expectations – Finally, you want a lawyer who is going to level with you when it comes to expectations. Some lawyers promise you the moon only to jump at the first settlement offer and take a quick payday. Dean and his team will carefully review your claim, talk to witnesses, review police and accident reports, craft a case and explain how they expect everything to play out. We’re not going to be able to tell you exactly how everything will go at the first meeting, but we’ll be honest with our expectations and explain what might come easy and what might be difficult when it comes to your case. It’s easier said than done, but if you can find a lawyer who will shoot straight with you, you’ll find the claim goes much smoother.
It can be tough to find a good law firm to handle your injury case, but don’t just jump to the first firm in the phone book. Do some research and make some calls. Depending on your injuries, we’d be happy to come to you if it makes the process easier. We’re here to get you the compensation you deserve and handle the hassle of filing a claim so you can do one thing, and that’s focus on your health.
