Two Key Things to Look for in a Personal Injury Attorney

Posted on - Wednesday, October 21, 2015 under Personal Injury

Finding a personal injury lawyer is easy. But to find the right personal injury lawyer, you need to know what to look for.

If you’ve been hurt in an accident, by a defective product or medical device, or by some other act of negligence, you know you need to find a personal injury attorney who can answer your questions about what to do next and who can help you get the compensation you need and deserve.

Given that there are thousands upon thousands of personal injury lawyers in Georgia, how are you supposed to know which one to trust with your future? When researching and interviewing personal injury lawyers, keep these two key qualities in mind:

  • Exclusivity and experience. There are plenty of lawyers who hold themselves out as “full service.” They can draft a will, help you with the closing on your new home, or defend you against criminal charges. They also can represent you in your personal injury case. But when it comes to the practice of law, there is truth in the old “jack of all trades, master of none” adage. Personal injury and wrongful death cases can be complicated, challenging, and nuanced. Changes in the law, new technological developments, and complex medical issues require a focus on personal injury law that only can be provided by an attorney who practices personal injury law exclusively. Make sure that you hire a personal injury lawyer, not a lawyer who does some personal injury from time to time.
  • Personal attention and accessibility. Your injury and your ability to obtain the resources you need to recover and move forward aren’t just parts of a case, they are parts of your life. Your lawyer should understand that. He or she should take the time to get to know you and your own unique needs and concerns. If you have questions, they should be available to answer them. They should explain how things work, keep you informed as to the status of your case, and advise you as to what may come next. Remember, the personal lawyer you hire works for you. They should act like it.
