How To Choose The Right Personal Injury Attorney For You in Philadelphia?

On behalf of greg

If you or somebody you love has been injured due to the negligent actions of somebody else, you may have to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover compensation for your damages. Securing maximum compensation for these cases usually involves working with a skilled personal injury attorney in Philadelphia. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we want to discuss how you can choose the right personal injury attorney for your case.

Finding the right personal injury attorney in Philadelphia

The practice of law is highly specialized. This means that you should be able to find an attorney who works specifically with the type of injury you may have sustained. There are, however, many attorneys who do not specialize in personal injury. For example, you do not want to go to a family law specialist to help with your traumatic brain injury case.

There are several factors that are important when determining the right personal injury attorney for your case. Just like buying a car, you should do some comparison shopping of different attorneys in your area.

  • Use the internet: A quick Google search of your injury and area will likely bring up many pages of attorneys around you who may be able to help. However, there may be multiple pages of results. Find some with good reviews and schedule free consultations.
  • Talk to your friends and family: You can ask people you know whether they have worked with an attorney they would recommend to help handle your case.

Some questions to ask a personal injury attorney

After you schedule meetings with a few different attorneys for a free consultation of your case, you will want to bring all of your documents to each visit (medical bills, accident reports, lost income information, etc.). Some of the questions you should ask a prospective personal injury attorney include:

  • How long have they been in practice?
  • How often have they handled injuries similar to the ones you have sustained?
  • Does the attorney have any experience dealing with the insurance companies involved in the case?
  • Will the attorney be handling the case or will it be handed over to a paralegal or junior assistant?

You need to find an attorney that you are both comfortable working with and that has the experience and resources necessary to properly investigate your case. Try not to base your decisions on who you have seen the most in advertisements. While they may be skilled attorneys, you should still compare them to other firms.
