Personal injury cases involve proving one party should assume legal responsibility for causing injuries to a second party. The insurance company for the party accused of some form of negligence investigates a claim to determine whether the claimant should receive compensation for sustaining one or more injuries. If you suffered injuries caused by one or more acts of negligence, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to schedule a free case evaluation.
What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer? Experience litigating personal injury cases ranks as one of the most important criteria when searching for legal counsel. You want an attorney who specializes in handling your type of persona injury case. For example, if you sustained injuries caused by a reckless driver, you should search for a car accident lawyer. Another important trait to look for in legal counsel is responsive communication, which means your attorney should return emails, text messages, and phone calls in a timely manner.
Just as you search for legal counsel that meets your criteria, a personal injury attorney reviews a case to determine whether the case is worth pursuing. Reasons why a lawyer might not take your personal injury case include lack of evidence and difficulty establishing negligence.
