If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another person, you will need to find an experienced Florida personal injury attorney who will be able to successfully settle your case. If you find yourself asking:
“How do I know what to look for?”
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. In fact, many people don’t know what to look for when choosing an attorney. To prevent you from hiring an attorney who doesn’t have the level of experience you need, be sure to ask these questions before making what is a very important decision:
Do You Have Experience Dealing With My Injuries?
While each personal injury case is different, auto accidents often have similarities which include:
- The type of accident
- The injuries sustained
- The insurance provider involved
This is why it is so crucial that you choose an attorney who knows about the injuries you are dealing with and the type of case you have. Ask your potential attorney about some of their previous cases. Have them inform you of the injuries they have dealt with and see if they understand what types of experts will be needed in your case.
The team of auto accident attorneys at Harmon Parker has an established network of experts for car accidents who will be able to provide proof of your injuries. Over many years, we have developed a winning strategy for these types of cases and will explain the process clearly, helping you understand what to expect and putting your mind at ease.
How Are Their Reviews?
We live in a digital age, which means that nearly everything we do is online. This is especially true when it comes to attorneys. You had a bad experience at the firm? 1 star. You were led to believe that the firm was going to provide a level of service that you just outright didn’t receive? 1 star. Your attorney went above and beyond all of your expectations? 5 stars!
You see where this is going. Reviews are one of the single most important pieces of information to take into account when deciding on an attorney—they are real-life experiences from their previous clients. When looking for an attorney, you will want to take a look at their Google reviews, as this is usually the most complete place for legitimate reviews.
Try to find a firm with a high star rating and a good amount of reviews:
Be sure to look out for glaring issues in the reviews such as:
- Poor communication
- Unable to speak directly with the attorney
- Promising the world and delivering nothing
- Low stars across many review sites
How Are Their Services Paid For?
One of the most common reasons why people don’t hire an attorney is that they believe they are too expensive. This is a valid reason for concern because if you are involved in an accident requiring medical treatment, the bills can pile up quickly and leave you with nothing to pay an attorney. However, many personal injury attorneys, like our team at Harmon Parker, work off of contingency fees. This means that you won’t be required to pay anything up front, and your attorney will be paid a percentage of what you win — and ONLY if you win.
