If you have suffered an injury due to another person’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering. This video explains how to find the right personal injury lawyer if you are facing difficulties getting the compensation you deserve.
The first thing to do is to talk to your family and friends to see if they have referrals. This is especially helpful if they have been in a similar situation as you, or are a lawyer with a good network.
You can also look at online reviews. Look for lawyers with a large enough sample size of reviews. If they have five starts but only two reviews, this may not be a reliable source of information. Also, see if the law firm responded to negative reviews and, if they did, how they handled it.
You will also want to determine the lawyer’s fees before hiring. Most personal injury lawyers work on a compensation fee model. This means you don’t pay them unless they win a settlement for you, and then they will take a percentage of that. There are also separate court fees to work with the lawyer through, as these are not going to be covered by the settlement and need to be paid upfront.
