The Four Most Important Elements to Consider When Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney in California

If you have been injured in an accident and require the help of a personal injury attorney, it is important to find the right person for the job. That said, if you have not needed to hire an attorney before, you might not know what to look for. Consider these four elements to consider and then contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 to request a free legal consultation.

  1. Their Reputation
  2. One of the most important factors in choosing an attorney is their reputation. You can ask for referrals from previous clients and/or colleagues. Look at websites that rate attorneys. Remember that there will always be some negative reviews, but you are looking for the overall experience of clients. Pay attention to reviewers who say they get personalized service, great outcomes, and whose attorney communicated well with them.

  3. Their Experience
  4. At the base level, you should ensure that you are choosing an attorney who has a valid license and is in good standing with the California Bar Association. Then look for an attorney who has experience in the specific type of injury you are dealing with, as well as the type of accident you were the victim of. Doing so ensures that you choose an attorney who knows the laws specific to your case.

  5. The Cost of the Consultation
  6. If an attorney tries to charge for your initial consultation, then they are not the attorney to work with. You need someone who offers a free legal consultation. That is what you can expect with The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker. Think of the consultation process as a preview of what you can expect from a law firm. It is a chance to discover if you like the attorney, if you feel they take your case seriously, and whether you can trust them. If they try to charge you for this process, move on.

  7. Your Upfront Costs
  8. Ideally, they would take your case on a contingency basis. This would mean that you do not pay anything upfront for their legal assistance. If they win your case, then they get a percentage of your winnings. If they do not win, then they do not get any legal fees. This has two main advantages. First, you will not have to pay anything upfront. Second, it incentivizes your attorney to get the best possible outcome for your case.
