When making the decision to pursue justice against an individual or company who has harmed you, choosing the right lawyers for your personal injury case can be a daunting task. Hiring the right attorney is not be taken lightly or made without full knowledge of the important aspects of hiring the right personal injury and accident attorney for your case.
In the paragraphs below, I suggest five key items to consider to help make the right choice in hiring a personal injury and accident.
When Hiring An Attorney, Make Sure That …
1. The attorney you hire concentrates his or her practice on injury cases.
There are many areas of law – real estate, business, contracts, employment, personal injury and more – so you need to find an attorney who is knowledgable and experienced in personal injury law. At Whiting Law Group, we focus on a select few areas of personal injury law so that we can offer the right expertise and experience to handle your injury or accident case.
2. The attorney has real trial experience in personal injury cases.
To secure justice for you, an attorney must be prepared to take the fight to the defendant. That can mean going all the way to trial. You want to know that your attorney has a track record of winning jury and bench trials. Our trial attorneys at Whiting Law Group have winning records in both jury and bench trials in multiple jurisdictions including Illinois, Wisconsin and California.
3. The attorney has experience in handling similar cases to yours or that of your loved one.
Even within personal injury law, there are different areas of focus: medical malpractice, auto accidents, truck accidents and more. You want an area who has a success record of handling cases with similar circumstances to your own. In limiting our practice to personal injury law, Whiting Law Group has developed deep and extensive experience and knowledge with many of the types of personal injury cases.
4. The attorney makes a commitment to clear, timely and open communication.
Your case really is about you. How it is handled, how it progresses and developments that will definitely affect you and your case. You need a lawyer who communicates regularly, openly and clearly with you to ensure that you know how your case is progressing and that you’re involved with the case to assure a winning result. At Whiting Law Group, we are deeply committed to excellent client care and communication. We pride ourselves on the way that we look after our clients in their time of need.
5. You feel comfortable with and like the personal injury attorney that you hire.
Most personal injury cases take 12-36 months to resolve, so you will be spending a lot of time communicating with your lawyer about your case. You must like the attorney or the entire fight for justice will be much more stressful than it needs to be. At Whiting Law Group, we appreciate the need to work well with our clients. We work very hard to make sure that each and every client is as actively involved in their case as they want to be. This testimonial from a client illustrates how much our clients love our approach.
