Choosing a Car Accident Attorney

When you are injured in a car accident caused by someone else, you need an attorney who can investigate the details of your case and determine if you should pursue compensation.

As you consider potential attorneys to represent you, consider the following elements:

  • Experience: Your attorney must have experience with relevant state laws and federal highway safety laws as they pertain to car accidents.

An experienced attorney is more likely to have developed skills in identifying fault in an accident and using evidence of how your injury has impacted your life to pursue compensation for you.

  • Verdicts and settlements: Find out if the attorney has been successful in handling car accident cases like yours. Even though you can’t expect results similar to anyone else, finding out about verdicts and settlements the attorney has achieved gives you some insight into what the attorney is capable of.
  • Consultation: You should find out about the car accident attorney’s experience during a consultation with the attorney. You should also ask who will work with you throughout the duration of your case – the attorney or someone else in the firm.

The attorney you choose should have experience with car accident claims and be dedicated to fighting for compensation for your injury.
