What Makes a Good Injury Legal Expert Team and Why Would They Be Right for You?

You have suffered an injury, or you have caused someone else to be injured, so you want a good team to work with, who specialize in injury law. It is an important choice, so you want to choose the right team - you may be working with them for a while.

1. Interviewing Your Lawyer

You want to make sure that you get the best lawyer for your case, because you want to win it, but you want to make sure that you can work together.

If you have found someone that is licensed to practice in your area and wants to take your case, you want to find out whether they are good at staying in communication.

How good are they at answering the questions that you have?

You will be able to tell pretty quickly if you like the person, and meeting their staff who you also have to deal with is important. Trying any legal case is sometimes stressful, and you want to make sure that your lawyer is not a source of that.

2. Do They Want Your Case?

You may like your lawyer but do they actually want to take your case? In the same way that every lawyer is not going to be a good match for you, not every single client is going to be perfect for a lawyer.

It’s good to establish this upfront. It could be as simple as they are unable to service you due to their case load or they have no calendar openings. Whatever the reason it is worth checking with them to see if they can tell you anything about your case that led them to make the decision, as this may help you.

3. General Experience

How long have your lawyers been in practice? Having lawyers with a lot of experience is usually preferable, but if cost is an issue, a newer lawyer may make more sense.

Do they actually specialize in personal injury cases, or do personal injuries cases make up a large percentage of their caseload? If not you may want to look elsewhere. You want a firm known for its expertise in injury cases. 

Is the lawyer primarily working with claimants or defendants?

It can also be a good thing if your lawyer has had experience with the insurance company in the case, though this is not necessary. 

4. Your Settlement Goal

Being able to agree on what your goals are for the case is also going to be important. Obviously you want to have a realistic goal, but you want to  make sure that your lawyer is not on a totally different page.

Going into the whole process you should have an idea of what you are looking to do. You may need to reframe this given your conversation with a lawyer, and they have a vested interest in educating you on the whole process. 

There are a lot of online resources that you can use to qualify the team that you want to work with, and to answer some of your questions. It is still worth it to meet with them and talk with them though, as your case specifics may require a more in-depth conversation and involve more questions than a website can answer.
