If you’ve recently been injured, finding a lawyer to represent you may be a daunting affair, however, it’s one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Don’t pick the first attorney who comes up on your search or the attorney with the most TV commercials. At A to Z Injury Law, we know the mistakes clients often make and want to guide you into making the best decision.
Even though you have many lawyers to choose from, you want to find someone who is specifically experienced in personal injury law. That should be your first step (we’ll get into more detail on that). Then, follow the steps below to ensure you find the best person to advocate for your rights.
Find a Personal Injury Lawyer
Hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who can get you a large settlement to cover all your medical expenses and additional compensation for pain and suffering.
Personal injury law is very detailed, so hiring just any lawyer isn’t going to cut it.
If your lawyer isn’t experienced in this area, you may be more knowledgeable than your lawyer. The personal injury attorneys at A to Z Injury Law are experienced in both large and small cases. We know how to help clients after they’ve had an accident that resulted in injuries.
If you cannot contact our law firm because you live outside of Florida, find a lawyer you can trust and who has the experience to professionally guide you through these trying times.
Additionally, you should do your research to ensure your lawyer does not have years of experience in unrelated cases. In general, an attorney who specializes in personal injury law will have a more in-depth perspective and will be better suited to help you get the results you want.
Review Your Attorney
One part of researching your attorney is making sure they’re in good standing with their state and local bar association. Usually, you can get access to referral lists at many of the larger bar associations to find this information. You can also review lawyer directories, which often provide extensive information on the attorney, including client reviews and peer ratings.
Contact the Attorney
Sometimes, the best way to know if the attorney is right for you is to contact their office and evaluate your experience with them. If they took too long to return your call, if the receptionist was rude or impatient, and if you never had the chance to even speak to an attorney, then it’s time to look elsewhere.
Contacting the office can provide valuable insight into how well they treat you and handle your case.
After you’ve narrowed down your list to a few lawyers, you should call them and ask questions. A few questions you should ask before hiring a lawyer include:
- How many of their cases are referrals?
- What kinds of cases do they typically handle?
- How many cases have they taken to court?
- How long have they been handling personal injury cases?
- How many cases are they currently handling?
If you live in Miami and have questions related to your case, or would like a free consultation, contact A to Z Injury today. It’s easy to make mistakes when you don’t have the guidance of a professional attorney.
Common mistakes include posting about the accident/injury on social media, not filing their claim on time, and not including the proper documentation. Our lawyers will help guide you through the entire personal injury process and make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.
Your Lawyer Shouldn’t be Afraid of Courtrooms
Make sure your lawyer has experience taking cases to trial. This may sound obvious, but some lawyers have never stepped inside a courtroom. Instead, they expect their client to accept the first settlement offered by overly aggressive insurance companies. Make sure your attorney can take your case in front of a judge if need be.
The attorneys at A to Z injury law are trial lawyers who aren’t afraid to battle it out in the courtroom to maximize your recovery.
