How Do I Choose A Good Lake Nona Personal Injury Lawyer?
Choosing the right Lake Nona personal injury lawyer is not an easy decision and should not be taken lightly. All lawyers are not the same and hiring the right lawyer can be the difference between receiving a significant settlement versus receiving little to nothing at all. You will only have one shot for your case so you need to choose a Lake Nona personal injury lawyer wisely.
There are many factors to consider before hiring a Lake Nona personal injury lawyer. First, you want to hire a lawyer who specializes in that particular field. If you have a personal injury case, then you don’t want an attorney who doesn’t specialize in personal injury law. If your lawyer is new or inexperienced this can seriously hurt your case. You want an aggressive attorney that is not afraid to turn down the “last best offer” and go to court, if necessary. While most cases settle out of court without the need for a trial, you still need a lawyer who is willing to go to trial when needed.
Experience is extremely important for other reasons too. If your attorney doesn’t specialize in personal injury, they may not be up to speed on recent case law or important changes to personal injury law. Laws are always changing and you want someone who is up to date with the latest changes. You also want someone that has vast experience handling cases similar to yours. The less familiar your lawyer is with the current laws or handling personal injury cases in general, the less likely they will provide the best advice and obtain the best recovery on your behalf.
You should always find out about an attorney’s knowledge, education and experience before hiring them. This can be done by checking a lawyer’s website or simply asking the attorney about their experience before signing a contract. Most experienced personal injury lawyers are more than willing to go over their credentials and results as it gives them a chance to discuss their credentials without seeming arrogant or cocky. Don’t be afraid to ask them about their top recoveries and whether they have ever gone to trial to obtain a verdict. While many lawyers are reluctant to advertise their top verdicts or settlements, a well seasoned lawyer specializing in personal injury will be more than happy to tell you about their best results when asked.
You don’t want to choose a lawyer based solely on television commercials or other advertisements. Just because a lawyer does a lot of advertising doesn’t necessarily make them the best option for you. In this same regard, if you hire a large firm that can afford a lot of advertising, your case will likely be assigned to someone other than the one you saw on the advertisements. Find out about YOUR lawyer’s knowledge, education and experience.
Most good personal injury lawyers are extremely busy (this is a good thing!) and aren’t always available to speak to you directly. Accordingly, you want a lawyer with a diligent staff that will return your calls and answers general questions. However, your lawyer should always be willing to schedule a telephone or live conference upon request.
