The 5 Most Important Factors to Consider When Choosing a California Personal Injury Attorney

Finding the right personal injury attorney can seem like a challenge – especially when you have never had to work with an attorney before. At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we have come up with what we consider to be the five most important factors to think about when choosing the right attorney. Remember that you can call us at 800-333-0000 for a free consultation at any time.

  1. The Way the Firm is Represented
  2. It is tempting to look at third-party sites to gather unbiased information about an attorney. We do encourage this, but we also encourage you to consider the attorney’s website. Look at the text to see if it seems as though it is written by a competent attorney or someone who does not know what they are talking about. While a well-written website doesn’t guarantee an attorney well-versed in winning your case, it is a good sign.

  3. Years of Experience
  4. There may be nothing more important in choosing a personal injury law firm than their years of experience. Yes, an attorney must get their start somewhere, but do you want it to be on your case? Do you want them to learn from your wrongful death case what types of evidence work and which ones don’t? Or do you want to work with The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker where you can get the advantages that come with 42+ years of experience?

  5. Their Success Rate
  6. Any personal injury attorney you are considering working with should be open about their success rate. For example, at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we have 95% success rate. If you find an attorney who will not tell you, or who has a success rate of 75%, then you will know they are not the right attorney for you.

  7. Reviews Are Included on Their Website
  8. If you find an attorney’s website that does not include reviews from past clients, then you may take this as a sign that they do not have many positive reviews from clients. Also look at other reviews on third-party sites. The more information you can gather, the better. Remember that a good attorney can stand on their reputation and will not be trying to hide the facts.

  9. A Free Personal Injury Consultation
  10. Finally, make sure that the attorney you choose is one that offers a free personal injury case evaluation. What’s more, they should provide a no-recovery, no-free compensation model. This means that you do not pay anything upfront. If they win your case then their legal fees are a percentage of your settlement or jury award. If they do not win your case then they do not get anything.

Not only does this keep your upfront costs very low, but it also means that they have as much invested in winning your case as you do. Contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker now at 800-333-0000 to request a free legal consultation.
