Industry Secrets for Finding the Best Personal Injury Lawyer

Studies show that the lawyer you hire is the single most important factor in the final value of your settlement. Every day, injured people fall victim to uneducated and inexperienced attorneys claiming to be legitimate personal injury lawyers. This article will give you five ways to ensure that you hire one of the best personal injury lawyers in the area who can ensure that you receive the full compensation that you deserve after a personal injury.

Secret 1: The best personal injury firms don’t do large-scale advertising.

The best personal injury lawyers almost never advertise on television, billboards, or public transit buses. These law offices are called “high volume” firms because they must maintain a high volume of clients to meet their expensive advertising spending habits. These firms care little about customer service or obtaining high value because they need to settle multiple cases quickly to cover their extremely high operating costs. Clients with legitimate cases become the victims of their horrible business model.

Secret 2: The best personal injury lawyers only practice personal injury law.

Personal injury law changes daily. Our team gets daily updates of new laws and cases which can make a case worth double or triple the current settlement offer. A “general practitioner” lawyer cannot possibly keep up in the fast-changing personal injury world. If your lawyer claims to be a “general practitioner” or handles multiple areas of the law, he or she might miss one of these important updates and your case settlement will suffer. Lawyers who claim to be a “jack of all trades” are just a master of none.

Secret 3: The best personal injury lawyers correctly answer these two basic questions.

The best way to determine if your lawyer has experience handling personal injury matters is to ask two questions: (1) “What is my case worth?” and (2) “How long is this going to take?” If the answer to either question is anything but “it depends,” then your lawyer probably does not have the experience needed to handle your case. Case values cannot be determined until all injuries have been diagnosed, treatment is completed, and the lawyer has had a full opportunity to read and digest your medical records. The case timeline is going to depend on how long it takes you to complete your treatment because you do not want to settle when medical bills continue to accumulate. If your lawyer gives you any other answer, you do not have a top personal injury lawyer.

Secret 4: The best personal injury lawyers don’t flaunt their success.

The best personal injury lawyers understand that their reputation in the community matters. Client’s cases are decided by juries and judges, and a poor reputation in the public can kill a lawyer’s credibility in court before the trial even starts. Look for signs of a lawyer’s financial success without him or her bragging about being the “biggest” or the “best.” Does your personal injury lawyer own their office building? Is the lawyer actively financially supporting local charities in the community? Finding clues of financial success and a positive reputation can ensure that you hire a lawyer with one of the best reputations to present your case.

Secret 5: The best personal injury lawyers get their cases through referrals.

When you find a personal injury lawyer who appears to have success but does not advertise, that lawyer probably gets most of their cases from referrals. The quality of that lawyer’s work generates continued business for that lawyer. These are the best personal injury lawyers. Start by asking family and friends if they have ever had a positive experience with a personal injury lawyer. You could also try a social media post looking for recommendations. When all else fails, read actual client reviews to determine overall client satisfaction levels with a particular lawyer or law firm. Make sure that the lawyer does not have all five-star reviews because that could mean that the reviews are illegitimate.
