You’ve been badly hurt in an accident and you have no idea how you will pay the thousands of dollars you owe in medical costs. Making matters worse, your injury has rendered you unable to work in the same capacity as before.
Would you know what to do?
If you were injured wrongfully, that is, someone caused you physical and emotional harm by acting carelessly, you have the right to bring a case forward to recover financial damages from the at-fault party.
Chances are, however, that you have no idea how the legal system works, so you wisely decide to put your case in the hands of a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer who has the proper training in practicing law.
But how do you know which personal injury attorney is the best? Which one can handle your case with the greatest chances of recovering fair compensation?
This is a good question to ask yourself. Here are some points to consider:
Legal experience. The last thing you want with so much on the line is an attorney fresh out of law school who hasn’t handled a big case before. A seasoned lawyer, especially one who focuses mostly on personal injury litigation, will have a much better grasp of what it takes to win such contests against insurance companies.
Trial experience. Related to the point above, an attorney’s experience litigating in court is highly important. Most injury cases are settled out of court, making courtroom litigation more rare. If you are not being offered fair compensation, your attorney can take the insurance company to court. Without experience in litigation, this can make it harder to recover what you deserve.
Results. A look at an attorney’s case results is an easy means to determining a personal injury attorney’s worth. A lawyer can have all the experience in the world, but if they have not accomplished anything of note in that time, they may not be worth your time. You will want to take special notice of big victories where they have recovered many thousands if not millions of dollars in damages for their clients.
Reviews. Past clients are typically not shy when speaking about an attorney with whom they had a positive experience. Listen to the stories of a given attorney’s former clients to help you decide which is right to represent you. Many forums exist online where you can hear their thoughts and learn about their experiences.
There are further considerations to be made later on, once you meet with an attorney in person. The above are a great way to help you sort through the numerous lawyers and firm to find the best Los Angeles personal injury attorney for you and your unique case.
