First Step in Hiring the Best Texas Personal Injury Attorney

Hiring an injury lawyer can be a difficult process. You may find yourself overwhelmed with many options and you might not even know where to even start. What is your criteria for choosing the right one?  Some people want reasonable prices while others prefer excellence in service.  Fortunately with personal injury attorneys, they will not charge unless they win your case.

The first step to choosing an attorney to represent you would probably involve searching the internet for a top rated attorney with experience related to your specific type of accident/injury. This could lead to a long list of potential attorneys.  Once done with this stage of research, narrowing things down will get easier by looking through their websites, reading testimonials left online about them by past clients, or simply calling the law office and asking any questions you might have.  Whatever it is that attracts you most will result in finding someone who meets those qualifications as well!

You should consider the following criteria when looking for an attorney:

  • Is he or she licensed to practice law in your state?
  • How many years has the attorney been practicing?
  • Does the attorney focus specifically on personal injury law?
  • Does he/she have a good reputation among other attorneys and judges?
  • Has this person been sued more than 10 times over the past 5 years, according to public records of defamation lawsuits filed against lawyers nationwide?
  • Does the attorney already represent another party involved in your accident?
  • Does the attorney have any awards or accolades that set him/her apart from the bunch?

After you have narrowed down your results it is time to schedule a consultation.  Now for the interview questions!
