Frequently Asked Questions

If you've been injured in an accident, finding the right personal injury lawyer can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case. But with so many lawyers to choose from, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Here are some tips on how to find a good personal injury lawyer:

  1. Determine Your Needs.  Before you start looking for a lawyer, it's important to determine what type of case you have and what kind of legal help you need.

  2. Ask for Referrals.  Ask friends and family members if they know any good personal injury lawyers. You can also ask other lawyers you know for referrals, as they often have contacts in the legal community. 

  3. Check Credentials.  Make sure the lawyer you choose is licensed to practice law in your state and is a member of the state bar association. You can also check their credentials and disciplinary history with the state bar association.

  4. Schedule a Consultation.  Many personal injury lawyers offer free consultations, where you can discuss your case and get a sense of whether they would be a good fit for you. During the consultation, ask about their experience, their approach to your case, and their fees.

  5. Evaluate Communication.  You want a lawyer who will communicate with you regularly and keep you informed throughout the legal process. Make sure the lawyer you choose is responsive and easy to reach by phone or email.

  6. Review Fees.  Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if you win your case. However, it's important to understand the fee structure and any other costs associated with your case before you hire a lawyer.

  7. Trust Your Gut.  Ultimately, you want to choose a lawyer who you feel comfortable working with and who you trust to represent your best interests. If something feels off or you're not confident in a lawyer's abilities, keep looking until you find someone who is a better fit.
