How to Choose the Best Car Accident Lawyer for Your Case

When you have a car accident claim, you likely may have many car accident attorneys and law firms to choose from. In deciding which firm or attorney may be right for you, some of the factors you should consider in your decision include:

  • Experience — You should choose an attorney or law firm with extensive experience handling car accident claims, preferably cases similar to yours. You may want to ask an attorney what percentage of the cases they work on are car accident claims, what their success rate is in car accident cases, how many car accident claims they’ve taken to trial, and how often they win at trial, and whether they’ve handled car accident cases similar to yours. You’ll want to make sure that the attorney you choose knows what to expect in your case and has the experience to see your case all the way through trial if necessary.
  • Good communication — Your car accident claim is important to you, so you’ll want an attorney that you can contact whenever you have questions about your case and who will regularly reach out to you to update you on your case’s progress. Your attorney should respond to your calls, emails, and texts within a reasonable amount of time.
  • Personal fit — The success of your claim may depend on you having a good working relationship with your attorney. Trust your gut if you get an uncomfortable feeling when talking with an attorney during an initial consultation.
  • Tenacious approach — Insurance companies will fight tooth and nail to avoid paying you fair and full compensation. You should make sure that the attorney or firm that you choose to represent you won’t pressure you to take the first decent offer the insurance company makes but instead will put in the work necessary to secure a maximum settlement offer.
  • Resources — Car accident cases can quickly become complex, especially if you’ve suffered serious injuries or if fault for the accident is an issue in the case. You’ll want to make sure that your attorney or law firm has the resources to thoroughly pursue your case, including the ability to consult with accident reconstruction or medical experts when necessary.
  • Reputation — Your legal counsel’s reputation with the insurance companies can affect the ultimate outcome in your case. If your attorney or law firm is known for winning cases at trial, the insurance company may be more likely to offer a larger settlement to avoid litigation.
