When searching for a “personal injury lawyer near me,” the results can be overwhelming. So how do you choose the right personal injury lawyer for your needs? Should you just choose the first one? The one with the most reviews? The one whose office is closest to your home?
There are a number of considerations when selecting an attorney. Proximity shouldn’t be the top. In fact, a good personal injury lawyer will come to you if you are unable to visit their practice. Neither should the first attorney to pop up on your search results be your default first choice. Remember, companies can and do pay for top search results. Many of those first listings are paid advertisements.
Areas of Practice
The first consideration when selecting a personal injury lawyer is their areas of practice. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you want someone who handles workplace injury. If you have been injured in a car accident, you want someone who handles car accidents. Many of the best personal injury firms have attorneys who are experienced in all of these areas, just make sure any that you contact list the cause of your injury as an area of practice.
Testimonials and Reviews
Always look at client reviews and testimonials. Many attorneys will list these on their site, but look also at various review platforms. Once you have found an attorney who you find impressive, call for a consultation. This meeting should be free of both cost and obligation. You are free to meet with as many attorneys as needed to find the right one for your case.
