First and foremost, if you have suffered a personal injury of some kind, conducting independent research on your personal injury claim or lawsuit will help narrow down the list of personal injury lawyers you should work with.

Your list should weigh certain factors, such as specialization, affordability, a proven track record, reputation, and trial experience.

(Are you searching Google for the best Personal Injury Attorney near me, or the best personal injury lawyer near me. If so please join me and I’ll give you seven tips to find the best personal injury attorney for you. Hi I’m Bob Welcenbach . Today, I’m going to be talking about 7 Tips to find the best personal injury attorney for you. Tip number 1, find a lawyer that specializes in personal injury law. Many lawyers practice general areas: bankruptcy, divorce, criminal, and personal injury. You want to make sure that you find a lawyer who specializes in personal injury because they are going to have a much better grasp of what has to be done to get you the maximum settlement or resolve that trial. Tip number two, find a lawyer who has actual trial experience. As everyone knows nowadays, trials are pretty rare, so you need to find a lawyer who has had actual trial experience. So when you go in to interview a lawyer to handle your personal injury case, ask them how many trials have they had. When’s the last trial they have had. How many trials did they have last year. You want to make sure that you hire someone who is not afraid to go after the insurance companies and who is going to get you the maximum amount for your case.  Tip Number 3, find a personal injury attorney who has handled similar cases to yours and has had substantial verdicts or settlements. You want to make sure that the lawyer you’re hiring has handled cases that are just like yours. 

So that they know what they’re doing and that they’ve had actual results and success in past cases. Tip number 4, find a lawyer who is active in their State Trial Lawyers Associations. Find someone who has a membership role in those organizations. Those are going to be the trial lawyers who focus on personal injury, know the law and are able to get you the maximum results. Tip number 5, find a personal injury lawyer who will handle your case personally. Many of the big law firms have so much staff and so much overhead that they’re going to pass your case off to a secretary or a paralegal. Which is fine in some cases, but your case deserves an attention of an attorney who is trained to handle the exact type of matter that you have, blah blah. Number five, Tip number five, Find a Lawyer who’ll handle your case personally. When you interview the lawyer ask him or her if she or he going to be able to handle your case personally. Or is it going to be passed off to a secretary or a paralegal or an associate. You want to make sure that your case is handled by the lawyer that you’re hiring, someone who has gone to law school, who knows the law and who knows how to deal with the insurance company. Many times at the big law firms, they’re too busy, they have too much overhead and they pass the case off to a paralegal and you may never talk to a lawyer. Tip number 6, look online for lawyer. Tip number 6, look online to see the reviews that the lawyer you want to hire has. 

It’s important to see what other clients and other attorneys have said about your lawyer and whether that’s someone that you can get to know, like, and trust to handle your case. Finally, Tip Number 7, look online. Finally, Tip Number 7, look online to see if your lawyer has ratings from Aval, Super Lawyers, Facebook or Google reviews to see what their ratings are from other lawyers.
