Selecting A Personal Injury Lawyer

Written by Malman Law, reviewed by Steve J. Malman.

Being injured through no fault of your own can be a very difficult time for you and your family. Hiring a personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible to represent you after the injury occurs is an important step in protecting your options to get a fair settlement and reasonable financial compensation.

You need to take the time to find the right personal injury lawyer for your case. It is important not only to have the best legal representation but also someone that you feel comfortable with and trust. Finding the right lawyer doesn’t have to be time consuming as you can do a lot of research online as well as by phone.

Specialization Counts

You will find that there are a lot of different law firms and types of practices that will advertise that they handle personal injury cases. It is highly recommended you consider firms that specialize in this area rather than those handling multiple areas of legal representation.

By choosing a personal injury lawyer from a firm that specializes in helping injured people you will have the essential expertise necessary to handle this complex area of the law.

Firm Size

Once you have located firms that specialize in personal injury cases then you then need to decide which size law firm to choose. Generally a single personal injury lawyer with a solo practice is not the best choice as he or she is literally one attorney serving all the clients for that office.

A better option if you want personal service as well as the ability to have a team working with your personal injury lawyer is to select a small to medium sized firm of around ten attorneys. This option provides all the benefits of a small office with the assets and professional skills of a larger office.
