Tips on Choosing a Personal Injury LawyerHaving a serious injury often means having to miss work, having to change your daily routine, and having to deal with medical bills that never seem to stop coming in the mail. If you’re stuck with a personal injury case and don’t know how to find a fair way out, you need the services of a professional.

At Yermus & Associates, our team of personal injury lawyers can assess your situation and ensure that your rights are protected. Having a lawyer by your side should help answer your questions about the legal process, saving you from the stress of dealing with your legal claim and insurance company, and allowing you to concentrate on more important matters—like getting better.

Here are some tips on how to choose a personal injury lawyer.

1. Experience and Credentials

Experience and training are what set apart good lawyers from the rest. The only way lawyers can build their experience is to handle more cases, but don’t just look at the number of years a lawyer has been in the business—ask about their record of helping clients.

It also pays to know a lawyer’s credentials. Don’t be afraid to be discriminating in your needs—it’s how the business works.

2. Expertise

Different lawyers have different experiences and backgrounds, so if your case has to do with a personal injury, you can’t expect a tax lawyer to be as effective as a personal injury lawyer. Personal injuries are a completely different animal than tax or real estate law, requiring the attention of a specific lawyer specializing in this unique aspect of the law.

3. Communication

Communication is extremely important, particularly for those with severe impairments due to their injury. As with any lawyer-client relationship, hiring a personal lawyer means having to work on a personal level over several appointments. You can’t expect to build a solid case with your lawyer without an open line of communication. Ensure your lawyer is responsive to your needs.

    I have a friend that was recently involved in a car accident and hasn’t been able to work. Her situation has made me cautious of the same thing happening to my family, so I think it would be best for us to make sure we have a personal injury lawyer in mind in case anything does happen. I like the tip you give here of looking for someone who has great communication skills. I imagine that no matter how good of a lawyer they are, it will be hard to work with them if they can’t communicate. We will be sure to keep these tips in mind as we look around!
