Question: How do I choose the best car accident attorney for my case?
In Washington, if you’re looking at selecting the best personal injury attorney for your claim, you want to be sure that you do your research, so pick an attorney that’s experienced in personal injury law. What you want to look for is a firm that handles only personal injury cases. A lot of firms dabble in personal injury and you don’t want a lawyer that just dabbles in your type of law. It’d be like going to an orthopedic surgeon who dabbles in brain surgery. That’s not the doctor you want for your brain surgery, and that’s certainly not the lawyer you want. Be sure you have the right attorney with the right expertise.The other thing you want to look at is that attorney’s track record. Is this an attorney that goes to court? Is this an attorney that goes to trial? Insurance companies keep track of all of that and if you have an attorney that actually will take your case to trial, the insurance company will pay more value on your case than they would an attorney who caves in every time your case gets difficult.
The other thing that you want to look for is an attorney that’s the best fit for you. I always recommend that you talk to a couple of attorneys by phone and that when you actually decide on the attorney that you like, that you meet them in person. This is a long-term relationship you’ll have with someone, and you want to be sure that it’s the right fit.
