If you have an injury claim, you want legal representation that is both experienced and skilled. To determine this, you can ask questions such as:
- How long has the law firm been in practice?
- What percentage of the firm’s practice involves personal injury cases?
- Does the firm generally represent plaintiffs (injured parties) or defendants (businesses or insurance companies)?
- Does the firm have experience with the insurance company in your case?
In addition, you need to determine if the personalities of the lawyers at the firm mesh with yours. You may well be working closely with them for a number of months, so you want to be personally comfortable with them.
Online reviews can be a great source of information about your prospective legal representation. Look for trends in the reviews that might make working with the firm either easier or more difficult.
