Choosing the right personal injury attorney for you is essential for your peace of mind and in obtaining the best opportunity for a successful resolution of your case.
To make the right choice, you should first determine what type of case you have and to look for personal injury attorneys who handle and have the requisite experience in this area to have achieved a reputation for success. Although most personal injury attorneys have experience in different types of cases–premises liability, workers’ compensation, product defect, medical malpractice–not all have the same reputation or record of success in these various areas.
For example, if you have a birth injury case or suffered an injury during surgery, you will want a skilled and experienced medical malpractice attorney. If you slipped and fell on someone’s property or were assaulted in a poorly lit parking area, you may want a premises liability lawyer. An injury at work should be handled by a workers’ compensation attorney, but may also require one who has handled product defect cases if a defective piece of machinery caused the injury.
Trial experience and the attorney’s personality are vitally important in choosing personal injury attorneys who are suited to your case. Having the resources to take a case to trial and knowing how to prepare a case can more likely result in a successful outcome, but also having an attorney tuned in to your case and your concerns can ease your anxieties and give you a good indication that your case will be handled to your satisfaction.
