Choosing a personal injury lawyer can be one of the most important decisions you ever make. It can mean the difference between you being able to afford medical bills, covering lost wages due to time missed at work and, among other things, instrumental in receiving the justice you deserve. Therefore, when choosing a personal injury lawyer, it is, at a minimum, critical to consider the following points.
Points Of Consideration When Picking A Personal Injury Lawyer
The following is by no means an exhaustive list of qualifications for your personal injury lawyer, but it is an essential checklist you’ll want to discuss with your attorney before hiring him or her.
Experience – Nothing replaces experience. The more experience a personal injury lawyer has, the more advantageous it is to you. Experience is absolutely vital because it means that your personal injury lawyer knows the ropes, that they have ‘been around the block.’ Choosing a personal injury lawyer who is ‘green,’ or who is not experienced with your type of case might have devastating consequences.
Accessibility – Lowman Law Firm is a small team of personal injury lawyers. As such, you’ll benefit from personalized, one-on-one access to your personal injury lawyer. You will always speak directly with an attorney for a free case evaluation. At larger firms, you may not ever speak directly with your personal injury lawyer until later in the process. We feel that this ultimately detracts from the level of service you get at other firms. Our personalized, friendly, discreet and exclusive approach is distinctly to your advantage.
Fee contingency – As your personal injury lawyer, Lowman Law Firm never asks for up-front payment. Our services are based on whether we win your case for you. If you seek the counsel of a personal injury lawyer who asks for a down payment or charges up-front fees, you should strongly contemplate seeking representation elsewhere. Though the majority of personal injury lawyers do work this way, some do not.
Proven track record – Ask to see the record of your personal injury lawyer. Is their practice area aligned with your case? What is their percentage of success. At Lowman Law Firm we’re proud of the reputation we’ve built and stand behind our services.
