Choosing a Car Accident Lawyer
Washington, DC, Maryland & Virginia
When you are seriously injured in a car accident, your choice of attorney will play a significant role in the overall success of your claim. A good car accident attorney will know how to uncover important evidence in your case and present it in a way that helps you secure the compensation you need to make a full recovery. Meanwhile, a sub-par lawyer without the relevant resources or experience will ultimately cripple your attempt to pursue fair compensation.
Because of how crucial this decision is, you should take care when choosing your car accident lawyer. Spend some time researching attorneys in your area, and look for specific qualities that indicate a car accident lawyer has the skill and experience necessary to successfully handle your case.
What Makes a Good Car Accident Lawyer?
A good car accident attorney should:
- Focus on your case’s specific practice area
- Have a demonstrated history of success handling cases like yours
- Have a reputation as a good trial lawyer
- Work on a contingency fee basis
- Have solid credentials, peer recognition, and membership in a variety of professional organizations
- Be available for you to contact throughout the case process
- Be personally invested in the outcome of your case
While some of these attributes can be learned by looking through an attorney’s website, many of them will only become clear during a personal consultation. When you schedule a consultation with a car accident attorney in your area, do not hesitate to ask them direct questions about their experience, their methods, and how they would approach your case.
Ultimately, the right car accident lawyer for you will not only have the credentials and experience you are looking for, they will also put you at ease and keep you informed during every step of the claims process. Being able to trust your car accident attorney is of the utmost importance.
