If you are injured due to someone else’s negligence, whether it’s an auto accident, work place accident, or a slip-and-fall accident at a business, a personal injury attorney can help you navigate insurance claims, medical bills, and compensation for pain and suffering. This article explains useful tips to finding a reputable personal injury lawyer.
The first thing to do is to ask family and friends for recommendations. Perhaps they were in a similar situation and the lawyer they hired helped them get the settlement they deserved. Even if they don’t know a personal injury attorney, they may know another lawyer who is able to refer you to the right source due to their network.
You can also look online or in a phone book. Make sure that the lawyers you’re looking for are specialized in personal injury law and have a good amount of experience. A lot of experience means that they know the local court system and judges well. Compare online reviews between law firms, and don’t just look for five star ratings. See what the low ratings say and if the law firm responded in anyway.
