How to begin your search for a vehicle accident lawyer

If you were hurt in a car accident caused by another driver or bad road conditions and need assistance being compensated, contact a car accident lawyer. Begin by looking for personal injury lawyers who routinely handle automobile accident cases. Look for experts with extensive expertise and a lengthy track record of successful settlements. Check out their blog and testimonials to discover whether vehicle accidents are a big part of their practice.

Request a free consultation

Most automobile accident lawyers provide free initial consultations. The meeting has two goals. It allows the attorney to examine your claim and you to judge their suitability. During the consultation we will assess your case and damages. We will ask about evidence you have, the cause of the accident, and when and where the accident occurred.

Not only is it a chance for us to determine if you have a strong case for us to take on, but it is a chance for you to determine if we are the right personal injury attorneys for your needs.

Choose experience

Experience counts in automobile accident cases. Most accident attorneys take other personal injury claims but specialize on auto, truck, and bus accidents. Ideally, you want to choose a lawyer with extensive expertise who routinely handles situations like yours. Ask these questions and don’t be afraid to ask for a case history.

  • How much of your practice is automobile accident?
  • How many cases have you handled in the last three years?
  • How much experience do you have with head-on, rear-end, or multi-car accidents?

Check accreditations

Professional memberships and achievements can demonstrate an attorney’s dedication to personal injury and auto accident law. National Board of Trial Advocacy, American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys, and other state and national business groups certify attorneys. Experience, a case history, and peer evaluation are usually required for board certification. You can ask:

  • Are you accredited by a professional body or a state bar?
  • Have you received any notable professional awards?
  • Have you ever faced disciplinary action for your law practice?
