Hiring the right personal injury lawyer is important for a variety of reasons. You want to make sure that the lawyer and law firm you hire has the experience and the knowledge to handle your particular type of case. There are many types of personal injury cases, from slip/trip and falls, to auto accidents, to negligent security. A good personal injury lawyer will know the law. But a great personal injury lawyer will also know how to assess and navigate your case appropriately. Here are five things that you should look for when hiring a personal injury lawyer:
Make sure that the personal injury attorney/law firm you hire doesn’t already have a high volume of cases.
In those firms, you become a number, not a client. When we accept a case at Romano Law Group it means that we understand the time that your case requires and our attorneys and staff can allocate for that time. At Romano Law Group, we build relationships with our clients.
Make sure that the personal injury attorney/law firm you hire knows how to handle your specific case.
Experience matters. At the beginning of a case, there are often crucial steps that some lawyers or law firms miss. For example, you’ll want to make sure that a spoliation letter goes out immediately (assuming such is merited in your case). You’ll want to make sure that the attorney/law firm understands your case and its intricacies. No two cases are alike. The lawyers at Romano Law Group have significant experience in handling and trying: auto accidents, premises liability, product liability, mass tort, dram shop, and negligent security cases to name a few.
Make sure that the personal injury attorney/law firm you hire is accessible. Recently, a new client explained an unfortunate experience he had with a prior law firm.
He explained that in the prior six months, he was only able to talk to his former attorney twice and wasn’t able to speak with support staff. That’s not acceptable. At Romano Law Group you have access to our attorneys and support staff during the week and after hours.
Make sure that the personal injury attorney/law firm you hire explains to you what you should expect throughout the course of your litigation.
What’s a deposition? mediation? non-binding arbitration?
Is a non-binding arbitration really non-binding?
What’s a trial?
At Romano Law Group, we work with our clients to make sure they are prepared every step of the way throughout their litigation and understand any risks.
The case is yours.
While attorneys can help you make crucial decisions in your litigation, ultimately, you are the decision-maker with various aspects of your case. At Romano Law Group, we help navigate our clients through litigation in the most worry-free way that we can.
Hiring a personal injury attorney is an important decision. If you feel that you’ve been injured due to the wrongful or negligent acts of another, call Romano Law Group today at 561-533-6700 to talk to an attorney.
