If you or a loved one was seriously injured in an accident, choosing a personal injury attorney can seem like a daunting task. When you turn on the television or conduct a Google search, the number of lawyer advertisements can appear to be endless. This can lead you to ask, “What should I look for in a Los Angeles personal injury law firm?” and “How is your law firm different from other firms?”
There are certain traits and skills you should look for when selecting a personal injury law firm. Here is a list of these specific traits and skills:
1. The Law Firm Focuses on Personal Injury Law - some lawyers and law firms try to do it all. It is important to choose an attorney who focuses on certain areas of the law. You need to find out how much of that attorney’s practice is in the area of personal injury for victims.
2. The Attorneys with the Firm Have Actual Trial Experience - Many lawyers claim to handle personal injury cases. Just look at the ads in the yellow pages or on TV. It is important to choose an attorney that has actual experience taking cases to trial. Insurance companies know which lawyers will take a case to trial and which lawyers just want to settle a case fast. Without an experienced trial lawyer on your side, it puts you and your case at a disadvantage.
3. The Los Angeles & San Jose Personal Injury Law Firm has a Track Record of Success - Your personal injury case is important to you because it affects you and your family. Your case is the opportunity for you to get fully compensated for your damages. It is important to choose an attorney that has a record of accomplishment and can deliver a full and fair trial verdict or settlement.
4. The Oakland & Napa Personal Injury Law Firm Works on a Contingency Fee Basis - Make sure the attorney will agree that you will not pay attorney’s fees unless you recover in your case. It is important to choose an attorney who will believe in your case and agree to work for a contingency fee.
