EXPERIENCE ASSESSING CLAIMS. Personal injury attorneys are experts with cases like yours and they can certainly tell you at the outset whether it is worth your while to pursue legal action. If you are unlikely to win your case, the attorneys will be the first to tell you to not anymore pursue your case and waste money for nothing.
FEES IF YOU DON’T RECOVER. Most attorneys prefer to be paid using contingency fees. This means that when you win your case, they will have a share in your winnings. You will, however, be responsible for certain expenses not directly related to professional fees, such as the fees doctors charge for reviewing your records or being interviewed.
RED TAPE. Everyone certainly hates red tape which slows down the process. An experienced attorney can work through the maze of paperwork necessary to resolve your claim so that you can get on with your life.
INVESTIGATIVE TEAM. It is important to have an effective investigative team. In this way, you will be able to search for your evidence and use them to win the case.
OBJECTIVITY. You will need an objective attorney who would only take the cases based on its merits and will not fool you with suggestions that you will win a case when in fact the case is weak. An objective attorney will work for the best of your interests, as his client.
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION. An alternative dispute resolution would allow things to be less costly. With ADR, it is not always necessary to go and seek judicial remedies when things can be settled in an extrajudicial manner.
EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH OTHER LAWYERS. An experienced personal injury lawyer can deal most effectively and expediently with opposing counsel.
EXPERIENCE WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES. Lawyers who have experienced working for insurance companies will be more familiar with the process that the lawyers who have not. Thus, it is more advantageous to work with insurance lawyers over others who have merely general knowledge on the issue.
BEST SETTLEMENTS. Personal injury lawyers would always aim to work hard to be able to settle and advance the best interests of their clients.
BEST JURY VERDICTS. A good lawyer is someone who can represent his client in court if trial becomes necessary to settle the claims.
