Reading online reviews of any personal injury attorney can reveal much of the information you need to know before you decide who you would like to represent your interests after you’ve been injured in a car crash.

But what should you look for in car accident lawyer reviews? Read on for a few tips.

Cases the Lawyer Has Covered

It’s likely that your potential attorney has multiple reviews. Read through them and see what kinds of specific car accident cases he or she has covered, such as:

  • Car versus truck
  • Car versus pedestrian
  • Car versus car
  • Another situation that matches yours

You’re going to want to know that your specific case can be handled, so be diligent in reading the available reviews. You may also want to pay particular attention to the types of injuries the attorney’s previous cases have involved.

Personal injuries in car accidents can lead to some complicated cases, so make sure your potential attorney is capable of handling that.

Style and Professionalism

It’s a given that previous clients or even professional websites will talk about your potential lawyer’s personality and business demeanor. You don’t want to work with someone you won’t get along with, so look for a lawyer you believe you will work well with.

Look for specific keywords like “professional,” “supportive,” or any other adjective you can think of that would describe a good car accident injury lawyer.


One of the biggest concerns of anyone looking for a lawyer is cost. Do you pay up front? Is there a charge for consultations? How does he or she determine charges?

All of these things may be in the online reviews. This information will help you prepare for the financial side of your claim.
