When you’re looking for a personal injury attorney, know that finding the right lawyer to represent you is critical. Like most decisions, it helps if you spend some time doing research and considering your options. This way you can be sure to find the best personal injury attorney in Indianapolis for you and your needs.
How to find the Best Lawyer for a Personal Injury Lawsuit
As you begin to search for attorneys, you’ll want to consider the financial and staffing resources a firm has to take on your case. If a lawyer lacks the resources to fund a case properly, it can mean that the case will suffer or you may be pressured into taking an inadequate settlement. It’s best to hire an attorney who has the financial means to take the case all the way to trial, if necessary.
Experience and Expertise
You also want to consider what types of cases the attorney handles on a daily basis. Some lawyers are “general practitioners” who handle many different types of legal cases, but if you have a serious personal injury claim, you need an attorney who handles personal injury cases on a daily basis. The practice of law is incredibly complex, and you need an attorney who is able to stay up-to-date on all the developments in personal injury and medical malpractice law. Also, consider how long the lawyer has been practicing. Whenever possible, go with the more seasoned attorney.
Verdicts and Settlements
Consider the trial experience of the attorney. While many people assume all attorneys go to court and try cases on a regular basis, a significant percentage of lawyers have little to no jury trial experience. If you hire a lawyer who always settles and never goes to court, more than likely you will get substantially less compensation in your case. Ask the attorney you’re considering about their verdicts as well as their settlements. You want to be represented by an attorney that can go to trial, if need be, and win.
