When you're seriously injured in a car accident and begin looking for a Los Angeles auto accident attorney, it's easy to get overwhelmed very quickly. Between the pages of Google results and the recommendations from loved ones, how are you supposed to know who is the best?
One key thing to remember: No one lawyer is going to be the "best." It's not about who has the "best" advertisements or the "best" office—it's about who is right for you. Every person is different and every car accident case is different, so the attorney who was right for your best friend may not be right for you.
There are at least three ways you can approach the task of finding a California traffic accident attorney who is a good match:
- First and foremost, look at the kind of experience your prospective attorney has. Many people feel most comfortable hiring a car accident lawyer who has had quite a few years of experience working in the legal field and, more importantly, actually handling car accident cases.
- Look for signs of special skills and a record of success. Check out your candidate’s credentials, find out whether he is respected in his community, and learn if he’s published any articles. These are all indicators that an attorney is probably good at what he does.
- Another way to choose the right attorney for you is a bit more intangible: consider how the attorney makes you feel when you meet for your free consultation. Does he make you feel safe? Do you feel as if he is actually listening to you? Do you feel like he cares about your case and isn’t just out for money? Do you think he has your best interests in mind? Go with your gut instinct when it comes to this. If something is telling you that an attorney may not be best for you, your intuition is probably right.
