Question:

How do I select the best lawyer for my construction accident claim?

Answer:

Selecting a Construction Accident LawyerI had a client call me the other day who was involved in a construction accident out at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina, and they asked me, “How do you hire a construction accident attorney?” If you’re reading this, you may have the same question. I’ll share with you what I shared with that client.

It’s important to meet with an attorney in person. Ask that attorney what kind of experience the attorney has with construction accidents. Are work injuries in construction accidents a core of that attorney’s practice? Is that attorney a personal injury trial lawyer, or does he do other types of cases, like divorce or DUIs or criminal cases? Make sure that attorney has a personal injury trial focus. Ask that attorney if he’s a trial lawyer and does focus groups of all cases going to trial. It’s important for the attorney to work the case like it’s going to trial, and he’ll get a more favorable result for his clients. Ask the attorney if he has the resources to hire experts on construction processes, OSHA rules and regulations, and building code issues.

I also told the client that it’s important to look at online reviews. What do past clients say about this construction attorney? Has he received good results from clients? Are they satisfied? See what kind of Avvo reviews, Google reviews, Facebook reviews these lawyers have. Also, look at how other lawyers are rating this lawyer. Look at Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, 100 High Stake Litigators, and see what kind of lawyer-to-lawyer ratings the attorney receives.

Once you’ve met with the lawyer, ask questions and then look at online reviews from clients and other lawyers to make your decision. If you’ve got any questions about your construction accident in the state of South Carolina, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
