Looking to hire a car accident attorney? Make sure you do your due diligence. Start with these tips from AA Accident Attorneys.

When you’re involved in a car accident, the consequences can be bleak. It’s critical to find someone who can help you put things to right, seeking the maximum monetary compensation on your behalf while allowing you to focus on rest and recovery. Generally, that means hiring a car accident attorney… but which one? Review these guidelines from AA Accident Attorneys.

Choosing the Right Car Accident Attorney

When you’re involved in a car accident, the consequences can be dire. You may face serious physical injury, emotional distress, mounting out-of-pocket expenses, and lost wages. It’s imperative to find someone who can help you put things to right, seeking the maximum monetary compensation on your behalf, all while leaving you to focus on making a full recovery.

Generally, that means hiring a car accident attorney. However, it’s critical to note that not all car accident attorneys are created equal. The question is, how do you find an expert lawyer who’s worthy of your trust and able to win the results you need?

In this post, we’ll outline some of the best ways to locate a car accident attorney who can meet your needs. With any specific questions, reach out to AA Accident Attorneys at any time. We’re always happy to answer inquiries and provide our insight.

Finding the Best Car Accident Attorneys

Start with the Basics

A good starting point: Ask your friends, family members, and co-workers if they have ever worked with car accident attorneys in the area. And if so, ask them about the experience and the outcome. A personal recommendation is often the best way to find a trustworthy lawyer.

And if your loved ones can’t recommend a good car accident attorney, that’s when you turn to your old friend Google! Some things to look for:

  • Positive reviews on Google, Facebook, and similar sites
  • A well-maintained law firm website with client reviews or testimonials
  • Credible citations in relevant directories, such as the local chamber of commerce

Some quick Google research can leave you with a list of local car accident attorneys you can call. It’s perfectly reasonable to interview representatives from a few different firms, seeking someone you feel comfortable working with.

Interviewing Car Accident Attorneys

First, we’d recommend asking each attorney you interview for a list of referrals. A reputable law firm should have plenty of happy clients ready to sing their praises. If an attorney is reluctant to give you a list of referrals, that’s probably a warning sign.

Additionally, here are some questions you can ask to make sure you find a reputable car accident attorney:

  • How long have you been practicing law? While there’s nothing wrong with choosing a younger lawyer, especially one with impeccable references, it’s your right to seek a veteran, if you like.
  • What areas of law do you practice? You wouldn’t pick a lung doctor to deliver your baby, and you don’t necessarily want a wills and trusts attorney to handle your car accident case. Make sure you look for a firm that specializes in helping individuals who have been injured in vehicle accidents.
  • Have you ever worked on a case similar to mine? Some car accident attorneys have particular expertise working cases involving Uber and Lyft, or motorcycles, or semi-trucks, etc. Make sure you look for a car accident attorney whose track record aligns with the specifics of your case.
  • Do you work on a contingency basis? These days, many lawyers do provide their services on a contingency basis. This means that you don’t have to pay anything until the case is resolved in your favor. This gives you some peace of mind and also helps mitigate the risk you take on when you hire an attorney.
  • How often do your cases go to trial? Sometimes, there’s just no way to avoid a case going to trial. Most of the time, though, you’ll get more money if you can settle with the insurance company beforehand. Ask your attorney about their track record of avoiding trials.
  • What’s the timeline for the case to be resolved? Your attorney won’t be able to give you an exact date, as there are many factors that impact the case’s duration, and not all of them are controllable. With that said, you should expect your lawyer to give you a basic, estimated timeframe.
  • Have you ever been censured or disciplined by an ethics committee? The answer to this is probably no, but it’s still worth asking. An attorney with a history of ethics violations is probably not going to be well-equipped to represent your best interests.

Of course, you’re encouraged to ask any questions that come to mind as you interview potential car accident attorneys. Use these questions as a guideline. And again, feel free to contact AA Accident Attorneys if you have further inquiries.

As a final tip, we’d counsel you that you should always listen to your gut instinct. Your car accident attorney is someone with whom you’ll need to work closely to ensure your case is resolved favorably. If you meet a lawyer you don’t like or don’t feel comfortable with, or who has a communication style you dislike, that’s reason enough to look elsewhere.
