A sure way to lose your accident case is to hire a lawyer who is a “jack of all trades”. If you have found your lawyer online or in the yellow pages, look at the ad carefully. Does the lawyer advertise that his or her office handles every type of case under the sun? Do they claim to do divorce, bankruptcy, estate law AND accident or personal injury cases? Unless this is a large firm with many lawyers in subspecialties, you may be hiring a jack of all trades, master of none.
You should choose a lawyer who practices exclusively in the area of personal injury law, which may include various types of accidents. When you contact the office, ask how much experience the lawyer has in personal injury law and how many years they have been in practice. In fact, ask whether the attorney handles a large number of auto accident cases if yours is a motor vehicle accident case. There is a huge difference in the experience level of lawyers, even within the category of “personal injury lawyers”. Do your research and get the best lawyer for your case. WorthingtonLawGroup.com
