Choosing the Right Personal Injury Lawyer for Your Case

If you are suffering from serious injuries right now, you need to find a good Susanville personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible. It is difficult enough to handle your day-to-day life with the added stress of doctors' appointments, bills stacking up to the ceiling, and your injuries complicating everything. However, that does not mean you should make a hasty decision and hire an attorney.

In fact, you should do extensive research on potential personal injury lawyers if you want to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries. Before you choose anyone to take on your case, you should consider the following questions:

  • Does the attorney focus solely on personal injury and/or wrongful death cases? You want to select a lawyer with solid experience in personal injury law, not someone who dabbles in multiple areas of law, especially if your injuries are serious. For example, you wouldn't go to a dentist for foot surgery, would you?
  • Does the attorney have an extensive online reputation? Check out Avvo, Google, and Yelp reviews before settling on a personal injury lawyer. Most people check out reviews before they buy a $10 product. Therefore, it would make sense to do similar research when choosing a lawyer.
  • Does the lawyer show a solid track record of successful trial verdicts? Check out the lawyer's website to see if they list settlements and verdicts. If there is no list on their website, ask them for a list. This is not an unusual question for a potential client to ask an attorney, so don't be scared to ask. Most lawyers will be proud to brag about their successes.
  • Does the attorney have extensive trial experience? Unfortunately, many personal injury lawyers prefer to settle cases with insurance companies rather than take claims to court. What happens if the insurance company refuses to offer you a fair deal? The last thing you want to do is settle for an unfair deal because you hired an attorney intimidated by or unfamiliar with the trial procedures.
