After an accident or injury, you may be struggling to handle your day to day tasks. Medical appointments, medications, and materials are piling up—and so are the bills. You may not be certain how you’re going to handle future costs and your family’s needs.
If this situation sounds familiar, working with a personal injury lawyer to seek compensation may be the right choice for you. But to make the right choice, you have to hire the right lawyer.
Here’s how to choose the right personal injury lawyer for you:
Using your favorite search engine to search for attorney’s law firm pages can be a good start. To improve your chances of finding law firms with experience handling cases like yours, include your specific type of accident or injury in the search terms. For instance, instead of just searching for a “New Jersey injury lawyer,” search for “New Jersey slip and fall injury lawyer” or “New Jersey surgery malpractice lawyer.”
Friends, family, or coworkers who have worked with injury lawyers before can provide valuable leads. When you ask for help, bear in mind that every case is different, and that your results may not be the same as someone else’s. Instead, ask what it was like to work with the lawyer and how well your contact trusted their lawyer.
Finally, schedule a consultation with three to five of the lawyers at the top of your list. Many attorneys will offer a free initial consultation. Ask about their experience handling cases like yours, what challenges they predict in your case, and how their payment or billing will be handled. This information can help you choose a lawyer you feel you can rely upon.
