How do I choose the best car accident attorney for my case?
One of the most important decisions a person who’s been injured in an auto wreck needs to make is selecting an attorney. There are a lot of attorneys out there. There are a lot of attorneys who want your business. There are a lot of attorneys that hold themselves as a competent attorney in personal injury wrecks; that’s just not the case. When you select a personal injury attorney who you want to represent you, there are a couple things you need to look at. One, how much of their practice is dedicated to personal injury? Do they work regularly with personal injury cases? Do they go to trial? A lot of lawyers settle all their cases; they don’t go to trial. Ask your attorney how and when the last time is they went to trial and what the result was.Another issue is how competent they are in what they do. You can look at their reviews. You can ask for references from people that they’ve previously represented. The other issues that come out in personal injury cases is you need to ask them the length of the trial. The other question I think is important is, who’s going to be handling your case? A lot of big firms will hand you off to an associate with very little experience and you’ll wonder who really represents you in the case. In our firm, I will be representing any injury case personally, from start to finish.
The big thing is if you like your attorney. Do you connect with them? Are they a person who understands what it is to be an Oklahoman and the things that you have to deal with? When you’re injured, your whole life is turned upside down and you need to make sure the attorney you select understands that and you feel comfortable with them.
You’re the boss. You get to select your attorney, and you need to make that decision wisely. You might want to interview several attorneys before you make your decision; just don’t select the one that you’ve talked to the very first time. Just because people spend a lot of money on TV doesn’t mean they’re the best attorney; that just means they spend more money advertising. Select the attorney you believe will represent you fairly and aggressively.
