After being involved in an accident that has left you or someone close to you with serious injuries, it's important to get the advice and representation of an attorney. Valuable information and guidance can be given by a personal injury attorney. Some of your injuries may be permanent and receiving the compensation that you legally are entitled to is important for your future.
Finding an attorney to represent your interests can be achieved by asking friends or acquaintances. When you have collected a few names, make an appointment with all of them to discuss your case. Do not sign agree to hire an attorney until you have spoken to and consulted with all of them. Some lawyers will not take a case unless the amount of money you'd receive in a settlement would be at a certain amount. Attorneys place a great deal of financial resources and time into cases that involve injuries and if your case does not meet that amount, they will tell you they're not interested in your case.
If you are unable to ask friends, you could ask another attorney for a referral if you're associated with one. Bar Associations will assist you in referring you to car accidents that handle injury cases. Even if the bar association in your area refers you to several lawyers you will need to discuss your case with them before you choose to hire them. You will need to find out their background, the settlement agreements they received for their clients that were similar to yours and if the attorney will be aggressive in making sure you receive what you're entitled to. In addition, if your case does not have enough merit to pursue, you need to respect the advice of the attorney.
Insurance companies will have an amount they are willing to settle a case for and it is usually less than what your case is actually worth.
