After a serious car accident, you should get an experienced lawyer to look after your legal interests. However, there is such a thing as the “right” attorney for your case. While every lawyer tells you they are here to fight for your legal rights, not every attorney may be the best fit for your legal matter. Although you have little time to decide, you must choose the right attorney for your case.

It is up to you to discern which lawyer may be the best one for you and your specific circumstances. Here are some tips for you to keep in mind.

Pay Close Attention to the Reviews Online

Some lawyers may cherry-pick the best reviews and include them as part of their testimonials online. What you need to look at is an objective source of reviews, such as the ones that are posted on Google. Actual clients can tell you about their experience and working with the attorney. You are looking for a largely unblemished record of satisfied clients who have had good experiences with the lawyer.

Speak With Friends and Family

There are scores of personal injury lawyers working in your area. You need to quickly sift through quite a few of them to settle on the one that works best for you. One way to find a good lawyer is to ask family and friends for their recommendations. They may have previously worked with one with whom they were satisfied and obtained a satisfactory result. At least getting a recommendation from a friend or family member can give you a starting point for finding an attorney.

Hire an Attorney With Experience in Your Specific Type of Case

If you have a complex case involving a specific type of car accident, you need to hire a lawyer with experience in your area. If you notice that an attorney commonly hires many more minor cases, you may not want to retain them for a case where you have suffered considerable damage. In addition, you want to ensure that your attorney has handled personal injury cases rather than having experience in another type of law.

Speak to an Attorney During a Free Initial Consultation

The best way to get a sense of who the lawyer is and what they can do is to speak to them during a free initial consultation. A lawyer will talk to you free of charge so you can learn more about them and your case.  This is your chance to ask them direct questions and hear from them in their own words. You want to pay attention to how the lawyer interacts with you and whether they take time to give you a full explanation in response to your questions. You are also trying to understand the attorney’s response and how they address you because you can work with them for a considerable time.
