Choosing a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

September 29, 2017

If you have been in an accident that led to catastrophic injuries, it’s vital that you seek legal guidance from an experienced injury attorney. There is a great deal at stake for you and your family when you suffer a catastrophic injury. Choosing qualified legal representation can have the biggest impact on the success of your case.

WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN AN ATTORNEY?

Don’t make the mistake of relying solely on the internet for your search. Keep in mind, an attorney’s website isn’t necessarily representative of their legal skills or acumen. It’s also important to realize that the skill set, knowledge, and level of experience varies from practice to practice. Make sure the attorney you choose has a strong background in the area of law that is relevant to your case.

Don’t be fooled by convenience. Just because a lawyer practices law in your state, does not mean they are qualified to handle all types of cases. An attorney who primarily handles wills and estate issues might not be the best candidate to handle your catastrophic injury case.

ASK IF THEY LITIGATE

Many people assume that all lawyers are capable of arguing on their behalf in court. However, some personal injury attorneys will only work on your case until a settlement is generated. Should your case go to trial, you’ll need to hire an attorney who is willing to handle the litigation. This is why it’s important to find out if the attorney you are interested in is a litigator. Finding out early on can save you money in the long-run.
