One of the most important things you’ll do after you decide to pursue compensation for your personal injury is select your attorney. You want a qualified attorney who can maximize the value of your injury claim so you can recover as comfortably as possible.

Without the right lawyer on your side, you could be at a serious disadvantage. Read on for information on how to find a top injury lawyer.

Conducting Your Search

There are several ways to find an experienced attorney:

  • Doing an online search for personal injury attorneys in your local area
  • Speaking with friends, family, and colleagues
  • Looking in local directories

These activities will likely produce several names, but that doesn’t mean these are the right attorneys for your particular situation. To find out which attorney is best for you, you’ll have to do a little more digging.

What Makes a Good Attorney?

The attorney you hire is going to significantly influence the outcome of your case. Your choice can impact how much money you receive and whether the claim is settled in or out of court.

Below are several factors that make for a top injury lawyer:

Area of Focus

Some attorneys and law firms handle many types of cases while others pick a narrow area of focus. It’s wise to look for a firm that has experience with the type of case you are involved in. For example, if you’ve been injured in a car crash, you’ll likely want a lawyer who has experience with car accident claims.

Successful Cases

Don’t be afraid to ask an attorney how many cases he or she has won or the amount of compensation his or her firm has collected for clients. Compensation award amounts and case track records are strong indicators of an injury attorney’s abilities.

Trial Experience

Ask any injury lawyer you’re considering how often he or she goes to court. Trial experience is critical when the insurance company or other party refuses to offer you a fair settlement. Some attorneys always try to settle accident cases outside of court. While this can be effective, there is no way to initially tell whether your case will need to end in the courtroom to get you the compensation you need.

Compensation Structure

Look for an attorney who offers a payment arrangement that works for your financial situation. For example, you may want a lawyer who will work on contingency so you don’t have to pay anything up front.
