How To Find And Hire A Trusted Personal Injury Attorney

It is very likely for most people to have never experienced being involved in a lawsuit of any kind, let alone a personal injury lawsuit or claim. Oftentimes, people who are involved in an accident of sorts, as well as the people around them, are either hesitant or uneasy about filing for a claim because of a general lack of understanding regarding what goes into a personal injury lawsuit.

There’s no need to fret if this is the case: you are not alone, and you are not the first, nor will you be the last. To see this through smoothly, you must first find and hire a trusted and reliable personal injury attorney to help guide you throughout the process and smooth everything out for you. Here, we’ll list down the three things you need to do to make sure your personal injury lawsuit will be handled by the best personal injury attorney available to you.

Meet With Potential Personal Injury Attorneys

Finding a personal injury attorney to handle your case is not a one-size-fits-all kind of process. Choosing an attorney could determine whether you could win or lose your case, so it is crucial to choose carefully from the list of lawyers available to you. Meet two to three lawyers and present them all the records, documentation, and other forms of evidence you can show them to prove your case. Trustworthy lawyers usually do not charge just to meet with you and discuss your case before you hire them, watch out for those who require payment upon the first meeting.

Choosing Carefully

After you present your evidence and talk about your case, lawyers will then discuss what plan of action you will have to take next, and how they can help you. You can also use this time to ask them about their experiences with cases similar to yours. Remember, learning about their track record could save you the trouble of putting your case in the wrong hands. No honest lawyer can assure you that your case will be a 100% win, no matter how good their track record is.

Also, make sure to steer clear of attorneys who promise you on the spot how much money you can win out of your case, because if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Lawyers need time to go over your evidence and documents to make a good estimate of what you can get out of any case. After you’ve met with your potential attorneys, carefully evaluate which one you’d like to choose to defend your case.

Hiring Your Attorney

Upon hiring an attorney, you are likely to sign a contract binding you to the percentage of money your lawyer will be paid if you win the case. Lawyers for personal injury cases usually get paid on a contingency basis, which means they’ll only get paid if the case ends up successful. Discuss your terms, understand the fine print if there is any, and ask all you need to know before either of you sign any documents.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
