Choosing the Right Lawyer for Your Catastrophic Injury Case

What to Consider During Your Initial Consultation

Whether you’ve been injured in a tragic accident or are pursuing a claim on behalf of a deceased loved one, ensuring that you are working with an attorney who understands the complexity of catastrophic injury cases is crucial. Since these injuries are often irreversible, they require an attorney who is focused on the long-term implications to your quality of life and is dedicated to seeing your interests are protected.

Trial Experience and Strategies

While not every case will end up in a courtroom, working with an experienced trial attorney often is crucial to a successful claim. A trial attorney will approach your case like a warrior preparing for battle. They will not be bowed by negotiations unfavorable to clients simply to keep the dispute from going to trial. They are not strangers to the courthouse and know that a courtroom is not an unknown to be feared. They understand juries and judges. They know what it takes to win in court, employing unique strategies that will strengthen your case.

The Firm’s Reputation and Track Record

A key component in choosing the right attorney is seeking out one who has a track record of success in catastrophic injury cases. Before scheduling a consultation with the firm, look at the practice or results pages on their website. This will help give you an idea of the experience the attorneys have in cases similar to yours and whether this attorney can provide the representation needed to get your desired outcome.

Additionally, the reputation of the firm is critical. Look for client testimonials and media coverage involving the attorneys. This will give you a better idea of the reputation of the firm and its attorneys.

Working One-on-One with the Attorney

When choosing the attorney and firm that is the best fit for your case, take time to consider what you want out of your attorney-client relationship. A common complaint larger firms hear is that clients do not receive personalized attention from their attorney and instead communicate through a paralegal or case manager for important matters. Catastrophic injury cases can be sensitive, requiring extra time and attention, a boutique firm can offer a more hands-on approach, with your attorney working one-on-one with you from start to finish, allowing them the opportunity to build trust and understanding of your needs.
