How to Find the Best Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Car Accident Case

If you are looking for an accident attorney to help you obtain the compensation you rightfully deserve, it is not about choosing just any lawyer that handles personal injury law. It is about selecting the best attorney for your personal injury case.

Here are some suggestions on how to select the best personal injury lawyer to handle your claim:

  • It is vital to find a personal injury attorney who seems like they are truly interested in your needs and wants, as well as someone who cares about you and your family.
  • You also want to select an attorney who exclusively practices personal injury law. Not a jack-of-all-trades type of lawyer. Lawyers who practice several areas of law rarely have the skill required to successfully win severe personal injury cases.
  • If your personal injury case cannot be settled and proceeds to civil court in Contra Costa County, having an attorney who is familiar with the inner workings of a courtroom is critical.
  • With that said, you also need to find an accident attorney who has the resources to take your case to court in Contra Costa County if it becomes necessary. Preparing a serious personal injury case for trial can cost $150,000 and up. Not only do you want to choose a lawyer with trial experience, but you also want one who has the financial ability to pursue your case in a trial, just in case the insurance company or defense attorney does not settle fairly.
  • You also need to find a lawyer who can prove a long history of successful litigations. This includes verdicts and settlements with impressively high figures. Do not hesitate to ask prospective lawyers about this – if they have a successful past of representing clients, they will be more than happy to disclose this information to you.
  • Research potentials lawyers on Yelp, Avvo, and Google, just like you would research potential products or other services you are interested in purchasing.
