When searching for an injury lawyer, it's important to find one who specializes in the type of injury that you suffered. Nearly every personal injury attorney handles car accident injuries; however, not all injury lawyers do slip and fall cases, dog bites, assaults, medical malpractice, etc. Above all, you will want a lawyer who has extensive experience with the type of injury you sustained. Although lawyers learn a lot in law school and many are very smart, there is no substitute for experience. You will want a lawyer who not only has extensive court room experience, but who is also very experienced at negotiating settlements with car insurance adjustors. An experienced injury lawyer should know most of the local insurance adjustors and understand how they work. Every insurance company and every adjustor does things a little bit differently than the others. It's important to have a lawyer who understands the best way to get the maximum compensation that you deserve for your auto accident injuries. If, by chance, your injury case does not settle, than you will be glad to know that you also have an attorney who has extensive court room experience. An experienced injury lawyer will not only know the court rules and injury laws, but he/she will also know most of the civil court judges and their staff. All of this experience on your side should result in a positive outcome for your injury case.
Deciding which injury lawyer to hire is a very important decision. Therefore, you should not feel pressured to hire the first lawyer you talk to. If the injury lawyer is being way too pushy, than that may be a good indication that he's not the lawyer for you. After all, if he's a good lawyer, he shouldn't have any problem getting new clients. The great lawyers will usually obtain many of their clients through referrals from former clients. They don't need to work too hard to sell themselves because their results should speak for themselves. Although you should hire a lawyer within a few days of the accident, you shouldn't feel rushed to hire a lawyer the first day. It's okay to take a day or two to put some thought into this important decision. You should feel comfortable calling the lawyer a second or a third time to talk the case over. If the lawyer is rushed and impatient, than that's a sign that you should hire another lawyer. After all, the first couple of times you talk with him, he should be putting his best self forward. If he's already impatient with you on the first day, imagine how he'll be a year down the road. Before you even hire him, he should be willing to give you some basic advice. He probably can't spend hours talking with you until you're officially a client, but there's no reason why he shouldn't be able to spend atleast half and hour talking with you to help address some of your concerns.
