Here are some tips on how to find the best injury lawyer for you:
Take your time
When they become injured, many people think that they need to try to find a lawyer quickly. Although speed is of the essence, some injured parties will take on the first attorney that they see. In actual fact, similar to when entering into any business relationship, it pays to do your due diligence. Try to do some research on the firm, look at past cases won, and finally arrange to meet. Most firms of lawyers nowadays will offer a free no obligation consultation, and any reputable firm will not pressure you to into hiring them. Use this time to get a feel for what they can do for you and only decide to hire them once you are sure they are experienced.
Experience in your field of personal injury
Quite often a firm of Long Beach injury attorneys will suggest that they can represent people in most types of cases, whereas in reality they just need to drum up business. One way to do this is to expand their areas of practice even though they don’t have experience in other areas. The bottom line is that the outcome of your case could be life changing in many ways and it is probably not the time to hire someone who has never represented a personal injury case in your particular field. Instead, it is vital that when you are looking for an attorney to represent you, that you seek out a lawyer who has a proven track record in your particular area of personal injury law. They will be well versed in the area and as a result will know the complexities of the state laws and will be able to deliver a speedy result. At the Law Offices of David H. Greenberg we have been representing personal injury victims for forty years and as a result, have delivered more than $200 million in compensation to our clients. We have represented people in many areas of personal injury law and our experience is top notch.
Beware of waiting room stalkers
Although it probably seems a little obvious, you may be surprised at how many people hire the services of an attorney they haven’t even met, all because they got handed a business card in the hospital waiting room telling them to call a number for a lawyer. This practice is frowned upon by most states and in many it is illegal (including California). A highly skilled and experienced Long Beach personal injury attorney would never need to drum up business in this fashion and any firm worth their salt would not violate the law. Instead, firms such as ours prefer to adopt a no pressure approach. You should be aware that in many cases law firms that employ the services of runners or ‘ambulance chasers’ (as they are otherwise known) are normally very inexperienced and are therefore not the type of people whom you would want to represent you anyway.
How much do the services cost?
Cost is an important factor in any business transaction and it goes the same way when thinking of hiring a firm of Long Beach injury lawyers. You really don’t want to be hit with some unexpected attorney bills at the end of your case. Instead it is vital that you know exactly how much your representing attorney is going to charge. With this in mind, it is fair to say that most honest law firms now carry what is known as a letter of engagement. This is a contract outlining the exact prices charged and the price the client has to pay at the end of the trial. Getting a signed copy of one of these means that you know exactly what you will be paying. It is always best to insist on one when you are hiring the services of a lawyer. At the Law Offices of David H. Greenberg, we operate on a contingency fee basis which means that we take your case on a ‘no win/no fee’ basis. This means that you will not have to endure any out of pocket expenses and will only get paid if we win your case.
Personal injury law covers a multitude of areas and therefore you need to find the right Long Beach injury lawyer for you. If you can follow some or all of the advice listed above then you will be able to choose a lawyer who has your best interests at heart and is confident of delivering the required result.
