With so many attorneys claiming that they handle injury claims, how do you choose the right one? While no single factor is the answer, here are some important things to consider:
Attorneys who have tried many cases to verdict provide an important advantage. Insurance companies tend to take them more seriously and value their cases higher, as they know the attorney is willing and able to take the case to trial if the insurance company does not offer a fair amount to settle the case. Further, the more trial experience the attorney has, the more likely he/she is to win the case.
To become Board Certified, an attorney must meet stringent standards and pass a rigorous exam, and must satisfy the requirements to maintain the certification every five years. Board Certified attorneys have distinguished themselves as having achieved a level of greater experience and expertise.
Ask about the attorney’s experience and results in similar cases, and look at the firm’s results in similar cases.
