Choosing the Right Goleta Personal Injury Lawyer

Choosing the right personal injury attorney for your case can prove to be challenging, to say the least. This is especially true if you are still in pain and trying to recover from your injuries. As you know, plenty of Goleta personal injury attorneys will offer to help you recover compensation for your injuries. Even if you decide to choose a Goleta personal injury law firm other than mine, there are some things you should keep in mind when you are selecting an attorney:

  • Choose a personal injury attorney who solely practices personal injury law. Someone who has practiced personal injury law, day in and day out, knows the laws and the different ways compensation can be recovered. This is not to say that a family law attorney cannot practice personal injury law. Still, choosing someone with solid and intricate knowledge of negotiating personal injury settlements and tackling a personal injury trial makes more sense.
  • In the case of trials, you need an attorney who is not afraid of the courtroom. Many personal injury attorneys we know are excellent at negotiating settlements, but that does not mean they have the shrewdness to tackle a personal injury trial. Some personal injury attorneys even shy away from trials because of the expense and time they take. You need an attorney who will take your case to trial and has the resources to take it to trial if that is necessary to get the compensation you deserve.
  • The attorney should have a solid track record of settlements and verdicts. Feel free to check out our past verdicts and settlements as an example of what to look for.
