How Do I Find The Best Georgia Personal Injury Lawyer For My Case?
If you have been seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, one of the most important decisions you can make is your choice of a personal injury lawyer. Finding the right one for your specific case could make all the difference, but it’s important to know what to look for.
At Jensen Law, we represent personal injury victims and their families throughout Georgia. Following is a list of considerations for anyone in need of strong and effective legal representation in the aftermath of a serious injury.
Does the attorney handle your type of case?
The term “personal injury” encompasses many different types of injuries and accidents. Whether you were injured due to a slip-and-fall, a dog bite, a car accident, a work accident or another type of accident, your attorney should have experience specifically in personal injury cases. Not all lawyers are personal injury lawyers, and you should not choose an attorney who simply dabbles in injury cases. Choose a lawyer who has extensive experience in matters of personal injury.
Does the attorney handle personal injury cases exclusively in Georgia?
Some people are surprised to find that the attorney they hired is actually based in another state. Big law firms often advertise in multiple states, but that does not mean that a big law firm or a multi-state law firm is the best choice for your case. Your attorney should practice personal injury law specifically and know the laws in Georgia. Do not put your case in the hands of an attorney who is not familiar with the laws and courts in this state.
Has the attorney gotten good results in the past?
A strong and effective personal injury attorney will have a proven record of success. Prior victories are never a guarantee of future results, but you can get an idea of a lawyer’s knowledge, skills and commitment to winning by looking at their past results. You should choose a personal injury attorney who has won jury verdicts in court, as well as favorable settlements outside of court. Most personal injury cases do not go to trial, but having an experienced personal injury trial lawyer on your side helps you negotiate from a position of strength. If the other side knows that your attorney has won jury verdicts in the past, often the other side is more inclined to provide a favorable settlement and avoid a trial.
Is the attorney easy to contact?
Your personal injury attorney should be accessible. If you ever have questions or concerns about your case, the attorney should be only a phone call or an email away.
