Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney

Finding yourself in a position where you need to hire a personal injury attorney can be frightening and confusing. A quality personal injury attorney or firm, such as the Orlando, Florida Law Offices of Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., may be essential for you to receive compensation for a debilitating injury that prevents you from working or supporting your family. But finding a good personal injury attorney that can protect you and your loved ones' best interests requires some effort and research on your part.

Things to Look For in a Personal Injury Attorney

  • Experience
  • Medical expertise
  • Personal attention
  • Verdicts and settlements

Experience

Many kinds of accidents can result in personal injury, including:

  • Assault
  • Automobile, motorcycle, or truck accident
  • Defective product
  • Industrial injury
  • Work accident

Due to the variety and unique nature of injury causes and effects, hiring a lawyer with extensive experience in a range of injury cases is essential to winning a case.

Medical Expertise

Since personal injury cases often deal with medical issues, having a personal injury lawyer who has extensive medical knowledge, such as a doctorate in medicine, can mean the difference between winning and losing a case. This knowledge is also of great benefit in medical malpractice suits.

Personal Attention

In larger firms, it's easier for clients to "fall through the cracks" and not receive the personal attention from lawyers needed for a successful case. One should look for a firm large enough to provide all of the resources necessary yet also devoted to making sure your lawyer gives you the undivided attention you need. The complex nature of personal injury cases means that attention to detail is crucial to a successful outcome.

Verdicts and Settlements

Even given the above factors, how can you tell whether a lawyer will be successful in your case? Looking back at their record of winning verdicts and settlements in personal injury cases similar to yours should give you a sense of the capabilities of your lawyer or law firm. A lack of reasonable verdicts and settlements might indicate a firm that has a good advertising department, but falls short in winning cases for their clients.
