A car accident is a terrible occurrence. Worse than the actual incident, is dealing with all the legal aftermath. A good attorney can help take that burden off your shoulders. Below are some great tips on how to find the perfect lawyer for your case.
Ask a friend
If you are looking for a reliable car accident attorney, friends and family can be a great resource. Car accidents, unfortunately, are very common. It is likely one of your friends or family members have been in the same situation, or knows someone who has. Ask if they may have a good referral for an attorney they trust.
There are many great resources online to search for local attorneys. Many websites have attorney reviews that can give you a good sense of their reputability. Try to take some reviews with a grain of salt. A person is much more likely to write a bad review, than spending time writing a good one. But if you see a pattern of multiple negative reviews, it should raise a few red flags.
Local Bar Association
You can also call your local bar association to get an attorney referral. They have a list of all bar certified attorneys in your area who focus on car accidents.
Call a handful of the attorneys that you think may be a good fit for you. Schedule a consultation and go speak with them about your case. Make sure that you feel comfortable that they would be able to handle your case competently. A good attorney will sit down with you, make you feel at ease, and explain the next course of action in your case.
