Finding the Right Shasta Lake Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal injury lawyers are everywhere. You see their commercials on television and the internet. You may even see personal injury lawyer advertisements on billboards if you drive on highways frequently. They make big promises, but very few are prepared to do everything they need to do to truly win a case.

Many injury attorneys out there consider settling with the insurance company winning the case. However, if the client is not satisfied with the settlement, was it truly a win?

You may not think it makes sense to choose me for your attorney, and that is okay. Regardless, here are some important tips to consider when choosing legal representation for your case:

  • Does the attorney have extensive experience in personal injury? Do they only practice personal injury law?
  • They have excellent reviews on Avvo, Yelp, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other review and social media platforms? You read reviews on products before buying them. Why wouldn’t you read the reviews before hiring a lawyer?
  • Does the attorney have experience in the courtroom? Are they comfortable with taking a case to trial? Simply asking a potential attorney if they are willing to take a case to court if the insurance company does not want to play fair will give you a good idea of whether or not the lawyer is comfortable with the idea.
  • Do they have high past settlements and verdicts? Feel free to ask potential attorneys about their past settlements and verdicts. They should be proud of their past verdicts and settlements and more than happy to share them with you.
  • Do they have the financial means to take a case to trial?
