Choosing a personal injury lawyer is a big moment. The person you choose to represent you will be your counsel, your source of advice, throughout your case. They’ll also be the one you’re counting on to keep you informed, to negotiate for you, and to represent your interests above their own. Ultimately, your Georgia personal injury lawyer will have a big impact on how much money you recover. So how do you choose the right one?
We believe that a personal injury lawyer’s reputation, experience and attitude speak much louder than their marketing schtick. By sitting down with the most qualified lawyers, you will be able to identify one whom you trust and get along with—and who knows how to get the job done. Below are our top 3 recommendations on how to choose a Georgia personal injury lawyer.
Top 3 Ways to Choose the Right Personal Injury Lawyer
1. What’s their specialty?
Some lawyers are generalists. That means they take on just about any kind of case that comes their way—whether it’s a divorce, a criminal matter, or a personal injury. If you’ve ever tried to use one of those all-in-one Swiss army knives, you know the problem with this: it can get the job done, but most of the time you’d really rather have the right tool for the job. The same can be true of lawyers. Often, a person who spends every week of their life working on personal injury law is going to have a more focused, knowledgeable approach than someone who just does it on the side. Consider working with an Atlanta personal injury attorney with experience in your specific case.
Our law group focuses exclusively on personal injury cases and similar cases of helping victims. We have attorneys experienced in car accident law, truck accident law, and motorcycle accident law in Georgia—among many other fields.
2. How many years of experience do they have?
We believe that experience speaks louder than other credentials, like where a lawyer went to school or what kind of awards they’ve won. The reason is simple: the longer you work in a field of law, the more you master the various arguments, rules and strategies that are needed to win cases. In the legal world, experience really does matter.
Our law group has more than two decades of experience helping victims, and we work with only the most experienced and proven lawyers.
3. Do they have the resources?
Winning a personal injury case takes resources. In many cases, it also takes time. And most personal injury lawyers don’t get paid until the case is over, when money is recovered. That means that the firm you choose has to be comfortable going months or longer without getting paid, and be able to handle everything in the meantime—hiring investigators, paying their legal team, maybe even helping you afford medical cost until your settlement comes in. Before you hire a firm, ask yourself: can they handle that?
The unfortunate truth is that many smaller firms cannot. This leads to a difficult situation where they start pressuring you to settle early, leaving you wondering if it’s what’s truly best for you or just a way for them to get money in the door. Don’t put up with that. Choose a large, established law firm that can handle the reality of taking on a personal injury case.
