There are many injury lawyers to choose from in South Carolina. How do you know which one will be the best fit for you? Please consider the factors below as you consider an attorney for your personal injury case.
Factors to Consider When Choosing an Attorney
Experience: Your lawyer should have years of experience handling personal injury cases. Experience informs your attorney as he or she works to resolve your case with the best possible outcome.
Resources: You should be treated with individualized attention, but your lawyer should have the resources and access to experts that is common with large firms. At Whetstone Perkins & Fulda, we have extensive resources to put to work in your case:
- Courtroom experience
- In-house media and technology department
- Network of highly qualified experts
How you are treated: Don't underestimate the importance of how you are treated. You should feel good about the communication between you and your lawyer. You should feel as though you are receiving individualized attention and that your questions and concerns are being heard.
Results: All the experience in the world isn't significant if the lawyer cannot demonstrate any results. Ask the attorney to show you past verdicts and settlements that have been achieved in cases similar to yours.
Testimonials and client reviews: The value of past clients' experiences cannot be overstated. Testimonials and reviews are first-hand accounts of what it is like to work with the law firm, and although results cannot be guaranteed, you can get a good idea of the kind of results the lawyer is capable of producing.
Questions to Ask About a Prospective Attorney
Your initial consultation is an important time to learn more about the lawyer. Ask any questions you have on your mind, such as:
- How long have you been practicing personal injury law?
- Do you handle these types of cases routinely?
- Who will be handling my case at your firm and will I be able to contact them if I have a question about my case?
- How long do you think it will take to resolve my case?
- What do you think I can reasonably expect in terms of results?
