How to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
Hiring the right personal injury attorney can mean the difference between recovering significant financial compensation and coming away empty-handed. More importantly, it can mean the difference between achieving justice and falling short of it. In short, hiring a personal injury attorney is a make-or-break decision with major ramifications.
Here’s the truth: Not all attorneys and law firms are created equal. Many lawyers lack the willingness or ability to go to court. Others are missing the knowledge and experience to protect their clients. Some don’t have the confidence to take on the big insurance companies.
If you’re considering hiring a personal injury lawyer, here’s what you need to know – and what the other guys might not tell you.
Not Just Anyone Will Do
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, a personal injury lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation for your medical costs, time missed from work, and other damages. Personal injury attorneys are responsible for many things:
Collecting evidence such as police reports, medical records, and photographs of the incident
Identifying the party responsible for your injury
Determining how much your case is worth
Negotiating with the insurance company to obtain the most favorable settlement
Going to trial to present your case in the strongest terms if a settlement can’t be reached
Not just any law firm can get the job done. You need a firm that specializes in personal injury cases, boasts a stellar reputation, and has a track record of success. Morgan & Morgan attorneys have recovered upwards of $7 billion for our clients over 30-plus years of fighting For The People.
Bigger Is Better
Personal injury cases are team efforts that generally demand extensive investigations. You need a legal team that will give your case the time and attention it deserves, and a law firm with the resources required to build the best case possible. At Morgan & Morgan, we often hire medical professionals and accident reconstruction experts to strengthen our clients’ cases. We’re ready, willing, and able to take on the biggest insurance companies. And with more than 550 attorneys across 16 states, our reach and resources are nearly unparalleled.
Why put your fate in the hands of an unproven attorney when you can rely on a firm with a long track record of success? In addition to our size, experience, and family atmosphere, what sets Morgan & Morgan apart is the fact we win, and we win big: We’ve recovered more than $7 billion on behalf of our clients.
Hiring a ‘Jack of All Trades’ Usually Ends Badly
Some lawyers dabble in different areas of law. Morgan & Morgan attorneys, on the other hand, are dedicated to personal injury law. They live and breathe these cases, so they understand how to determine what your case is really worth – and how to recover it. With so much experience under their belts, they know every trick in the book and are prepared for anything the insurance companies throw at them.
You Shouldn’t Have to Pay Upfront
There’s no such thing as a convenient time to get injured. But some law firms still insist on taking your money before your case is resolved – when you may have a stack of medical bills and no means to pay them.
Morgan & Morgan doesn’t take money out of your pocket. Instead, we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t owe us one cent upfront. We don’t charge by the hour, and the money we earn is a percentage of the winnings we obtain for you – it never comes out of your own pocket.
Communication Is Key
You deserve an attorney who is an excellent communicator and who will keep you up-to-date on your case. With Morgan & Morgan, you’ll receive around-the-clock service via our mobile app, with a dedicated team of attorneys and staff who will keep you informed every step of the way.
More than 100,000 clients have put their trust in Morgan & Morgan. That’s because we get results and treat every client like family. We have the resources the little guys don’t have, the track record the big guys can’t match, and a personalized approach our clients love.
