|How do I select the best lawyer for my pedestrian accident claim?|
I had a client that was injured in a pedestrian automobile accident, and they asked me, “How do I go about getting the best attorney?” If you’re reading this, you may have the same questions. I’ll tell you what I told that client.
It’s important to go meet with the lawyer in person and ask the lawyer many questions. Ask the lawyer if he’s experienced in pedestrian automobile accident cases. Ask the lawyer if automobile and personal injury cases are the core of his practice. Does this lawyer try cases, is he a trial lawyer? Insurance companies pay more money to clients whose lawyers are trial lawyers who will actually take the case to trial if the insurance company is not reasonable.
Ask the lawyer if he has the resources to hire expert witnesses that will help develop the case, as far as accident reconstruction and visual acuity issues. Could the driver see the pedestrian? What was the driver’s field of vision? Ask whether the lawyer conducts focus groups for cases going to trial. Presenting the case to mock juries is important because it allows the lawyer to craft the case and present the case in the best light possible.
It’s also important to do online research. Research what past clients are saying about the lawyer. What do the Google reviews say about the lawyer? Avvo reviews? Facebook reviews? Are the clients pleased with their results? What are the star ratings? It’s also important to see what other lawyers rate the prospective lawyer. Other lawyers rate lawyers in services such as Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, and 100 Best High Stake Litigators. If the lawyer has high ratings in those review services by clients and other lawyers, that speaks well of that prospective lawyer.
