How To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer
Finding and hiring a lawyer can be stressful and intimidating. There are more lawyers per person in the United States than in any other country in the world. Finding a lawyer is easy. Finding the best lawyer for your legal issue is not so easy. This is especially true when it comes to finding a personal injury lawyer. A person can use Google and find a long list of personal injury lawyers. But a first page listing on Google does not mean that a particular lawyer or law firm is the best, most qualified, or reputable choice to handle a personal injury or death case. To find the best lawyer for your case requires an understanding of how a personal injury claim works.
In most personal injury cases, it will likely be the at-fault person (or business) insurance company that will pay the injury or wrongful death claim or jury verdict amount. If you are hit by a drunk driver or your loved one is abused or neglected in a nursing home and dies, it is the driver or the nursing home’s insurance company that is evaluating your claim. Under the terms of most insurance policies, it is the insurance company that makes the final decision on what it is willing to pay to resolve your claim, not the drunk driver or the nursing home.
Since insurance companies evaluate and pay claims on a frequent basis, they know which personal injury lawyers are experienced and willing to file a lawsuit and take a case to trial if the insurance company decides not pay a reasonable amount in a settlement. Insurance companies also know which personal injury lawyers always settle cases for low amounts to avoid filing lawsuits. Indeed, there are many lawyers and law firms that do not take cases to court, and will instead try to convince their clients to accept a small settlement.
The bottom line is this: How much you will receive in a settlement depends a lot on what lawyer you have hired.
