When you are suffering from an injury because of another party's negligence, you might consider working with an injury lawyer to pursue your personal injury claim. Use the tools at your disposal, such as review sites like Google, Avvo, and Yelp, to help you select the right lawyer to handle your case. Although there are a lot of personal injury law firms in American Canyon, not all of them have reviews available to read online. A lack of objective reviews on third-party sites can make it impossible for you to determine if a particular lawyer could be right for you. Our personal injury law firm has been reviewed on all three of these sites.
Avvo, Yelp, and Google are useful because they showcase objective reviews. But look to a law firm's own website for more descriptions of the work the firm has done in its “Client Testimonials” section. These are testimonials from actual clients who have worked with the firm. Also, be sure to select a firm that has substantial experience working with injury victims and pursuing compensation on their behalf. Choose a firm that has a track record of success and can list its previous successes, whether these successes were recent or if they happened decades ago. The Law Offices of Edward A. Smith has been in operation since 1982.How to Select an American Canyon Car Accident Lawyer
You may need some help to guide you through the process of selecting a good personal injury lawyer. To help you, here are some tips when interviewing prospective lawyers:
- Your lawyer should focus on personal injury law, not simply dabble in it;
- Your American Canyon car accident lawyer should be willing to speak openly about how they will bill you, and give you a quote for their services. Do not work with a lawyer who is not forthcoming about money.
- Lastly, your American Canyon auto accident attorney should have experience going to trial. Although many personal injury claims are settled out of court, you cannot count on this happening with your claim. You want to choose someone who has the financial resources and trial experience necessary to take your case to trial should the need arise.
Although another law firm might be closer to your home in American Canyon, they might not be right for you. If, after we first speak, we feel that you have a solid case and that we are a good fit for each other, we will pay for your transportation and lodging overnight here in Sacramento so we can go over your case in detail. This way you won’t have to endure a long ride to Sacramento and back on the same day.
