How to Choose the Right Personal Injury Law Firm for Your Case

May 7, 2020 in

Choosing the right law firm for your case is an extremely important decision that can often feel overwhelming. When choosing a law firm to represent your case, there are two major elements on which your determination should be made—your evaluation of the relationship you will have with the personal injury law firm you select and your analysis of the qualifications of the personal injury firm you choose. Here, the qualified personal injury attorneys at Sullivan Papain Block McManus Coffinas & Cannavo P.C. discuss the process of evaluating potential law firms, understanding the resources available to you and ensuring that you are adequately represented in your personal injury case. 


Evaluating the Professional Qualifications of the Law Firm

When seeking professional counsel to represent you in a court of law, ensuring that they are qualified to represent you with expertise in the area of your case is vital. When beginning your evaluation, you should research and discuss the professional resources the firm has. This includes their staff size, resources to conduct potential investigations, expert analysis, case development and presentation, as well as the trial skills needed to obtain the highest possible compensation for your injuries. Additionally, consider the firm’s experience in fields similar to your case. If they have a legal specialty in personal injury, you may be better off working with a specialty law firm to obtain compensation. Finally, research the firm’s previous successes. If the firm has a proven track record of high settlements for their clients, such as SPBMCC, you may feel more comfortable in your representation choice. 


Examining the Relationship with the Personal Injury Law Firm

While the professional qualifications of a personal injury law firm are important, examining the personal connections and relationships you can build with this law firm is equally as important. Ensuring that those who are representing you understand that your case is unique is the first step in evaluating if this law firm may be right for you. Having the ability to dedicate research and time, as well as build a trustworthy and transparent relationship with clients, shows that these lawyers genuinely care about your well-being, not just the recognition or profit they may get from your settlement.  Furthermore, it is important that mutual respect is established when choosing a law firm to represent you. When personal injury occurs, your entire life may be changed through physical, mental or financial burdens. Finding lawyers who respect your opinions and wishes when moving forward with your case is an integral part of achieving proper compensation and closure. 


Apart from in-person conversations and relationships with your potential lawyer, it is important that you find a law firm that is efficient with responding through other means of communication. The process of personal injury representation often leads to myriad questions and concerns that need to be addressed in an efficient manner and finding a law firm that is able to communicate through outlets such as website inquiries, emails and phone calls can help streamline the communication process. Finally, consider choosing a law firm that makes continuous contact a priority. Your case is extremely important, and remaining up-to-date with any changes that may occur can bring peace of mind that your lawyer has your best interest at heart.
