Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney? 3 Crucial Factors to Consider First, Groton, Connecticut

When you've been hurt in an accident, there's certainly no shortage of personal injury attorneys promising to help you get the compensation you deserve. Of course, having legal representation is absolutely crucial if you plan to pursue damages, but how do you know which lawyer would be best for you?

Before hiring anyone, Mark O. Grater Attorney at Law in Groton, CT recommends meeting with at least three different law firms, taking into consideration:

  • Communication Style: Many personal injury attorneys prefer to stay in constant contact with their clients, receiving updates on the progress of medical conditions and keeping you up-to-date with negotiation news. Find out how a law firm prefers to communicate. These days, you should be able to expect a firm that's comfortable with email, phone calls, and even text messages.Personal Injury Attorney
  • Payment Structure: Almost all personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency basis, meaning that they don't get paid unless they win. However, make sure you understand the fee structure before signing a contract. Some law firms charge as much as 40%, and may require you to pay filing fees and expenses up front.
  • Experience: You'll want to find a personal injury attorney with extensive experience handling cases like yours. Feel free to ask about the results they've achieved in the past, and what percentage of their practice is dedicated to personal injury law. While new attorneys are certainly capable of providing excellent service, when the stakes are high you're almost always better off hiring a lawyer with a track record of success.
