5 Tips for Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney, Lincoln, Nebraska

If you have suffered an injury in an accident and believe another person is to blame, you may want to take legal action. A successful claim can secure you compensation to cover everything from medical costs to wages lost due to time off work. The first step to getting the money you deserve is finding the right personal injury attorney — and quickly. A statute of limitations exists for personal injury claims, so the sooner you act, the better your odds of success.

5 Factors to Look for in a Personal Injury Attorney

1. Expertise & Experience

The legal field offers diverse areas of expertise. You do not want a divorce lawyer or IP specialist handling your case. Look for a personal injury attorney with experience in your type of case — whether it’s a dog bite injury or an auto accident.

2. Positive Testimonials

Do not be shy about asking lawyers for references from former clients. Any reputable law firm will be happy to provide these. Talking to others they worked with can also give you an idea of what the process will be like.

3. Sufficient Resources

personal injury attorneyIt takes time, money, and manpower to build a strong personal injury claim. The job includes everything from interviewing witnesses to combing through police files and analyzing forensic reports. Ensure potential lawyers have the team needed to get the job done.

4. The Right Attitude

Most personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that they will not charge an hourly fee but instead will get a cut of whatever payout you may receive. You want a lawyer who believes in the strength of your case and has the aggressive attitude needed to score a win.

5. Commitment to Your Cause

Personal injury cases can be time-consuming. In some cases, they can drag on for years. A lawyer should be fully committed to completing your case instead of trying to knock it out rapidly, which could result in a premature settlement — meaning less money than you actually deserve.
