What to Look for in a Personal Injury Law Firm
If you were recently injured because of someone else’s negligence, you may be looking for a law firm to help you get compensation. Everywhere you look, there’s a personal injury law firm advertising its services. And while it may seem like a good thing that there are so many law firms available to take your claim, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the number of choices you have.
When it’s time to choose a personal injury law firm, there are a few things you should consider:
- How much experience do they have?
Every firm has to start somewhere, but do you want a new firm that hasn’t “seen it all” to handle your claim? Few personal injury claims are straightforward, and winning requires experience.
- Do they understand state laws?
Virginia’s pure contributory negligence law makes it tough to get compensation if you’re blamed even 1% for your accident or injury. Firms that only dabble in personal injury claims or that are based in other states may not be familiar with Virginia’s unique law.
- Will they make your case a priority?
Many law firms see new clients as nothing more than dollar signs. And the instant those new clients become an inconvenience to them, they stop prioritizing their cases and may even stop talking to them. Get a firm that will go out of its way to help you.
