4 Things to Consider When Hiring a Personal Injury Law Firm

There are four main issues to research when looking for a personal injury law firm to represent you or your loved one. Not all law firms, or lawyers, are equally experienced, or talented. In searching for an Alaska personal injury lawyer, it is advised that you look over the following issues before you make a decision:

Experience

There are varying levels of experience, and some attorneys are new in practice, with very little real life experience, while others may avoid court as much as possible, as they are not litigators, but just like to get a settlement and then move on. Look into the trial experience of the attorney before you make a decision – it matters.

Results

Does the law firm have case results you can review? If there are no high value settlements, but the lawyer tends to represent low value cases, and grab a settlement for the client without putting in the hard work it requires in serious injury cases, it is probably not the right firm for such cases.

Fight for Maximum Compensation

Some firms like to settle early, as the lawyer has too much on his or her plate, or is not personally dedicated to the injured person or the family. The fight for maximum compensation requires skill, detrermination, and the ability to press hard on the insurance company. When there is no response, or a failure to offer meaningful compensation, it is time to file suit. Your lawyer must be willing to go the distance in seeking maximum compensation.

Personal One-On-One Relationship

You don't want to be represented by a law firm that runs like an "injury mill." Many people complain that they never met their attorney, and were only spoken to by a staff member, and never felt like they were cared for. You want personal one-on-one care from the entire staff at the firm, including the attorney representing you.

Mr. Johnson and his staff were remarkable to work with! They were both professional and yet very down to earth. They made me feel a part of their family and would often check in on me! In fact, Jennifer even went out of her way, sending cards to me well after my case had been resolved! I would highly recommend them! Jennifer Koontz
