Tips For Choosing The Best Car Accident Lawyer For Your Case
If you have been injured in a car accident, your choice of an attorney to represent you could be the most important decision you make after the crash. There are many lawyers in the Atlanta area, but not all of them are experienced in matters of personal injury, and not all of them have a record of success in car accident cases.
At Jensen Law, we understand that the aftermath of a car accident can feel overwhelming. We have compiled a list of considerations to help you select the best car accident lawyer for your specific case.
Do they have experience in car accident cases?
Your attorney should have experience specifically in cases involving motor vehicle accidents. You should not choose an attorney who only dabbles in personal injury and car accident cases. Whether you were injured in a car accident, trucking accident, pedestrian accident or motorcycle accident, your attorney should have experience in those types of cases. When talking to an attorney, don’t be afraid to ask about their experience. Because your health and financial well-being may be on the line, it is important to choose a lawyer who knows how to investigate and litigate your type of case.
Do they get results?
One of the quickest ways to determine whether a lawyer is right for you is to look at their results. While past results never guarantee a future result, you can look at an attorney’s record and see whether they have won cases in the past. You should choose an attorney with a proven record of success.
Have they won jury verdicts?
This is a very important question to ask. Most car accident cases are resolved outside of court, but you should have on your side an attorney who has a record of success in the courtroom. Not all lawyers are trial lawyers. But having a trial lawyer on your side helps to ensure that your case is trial-ready if the other side (usually the insurance company) refuses to pay out all the compensation you need and the case has to go to court. Having a proven trial lawyer on your side also helps you negotiate from a position of strength. When the other side knows that your lawyer has won jury verdicts in the past, the other side is often more likely to pay the compensation you need because the other side wants to avoid losing at trial.
Will they be there when you need them?
When you have questions or concerns, your attorney should be there for you. Your attorney should respond to your questions in a timely manner and keep you updated on the status of your case as it develops.
