How to Choose the Best Personal Injury Lawyer
How to find a Personal Injury Lawyer in Madison WI
Much of the legal advice online is about what happens if you find yourself in a particular situation, with the advice to contact a lawyer before anything else. However, if you don’t know of any good lawyers, that advice can ring a bit hollow. It is possible to find a good personal injury lawyer within a reasonable time frame if you look for a specific set of qualities.
Winners Who Know What They’re Doing
Look for lawyers who have experience in the field you need, and look for ones who win. For example, if you are dealing with a car accident, you need a lawyer who is familiar with accident and car collision liabilities and injuries. If you are dealing with an injury from a drunk-driving accident, you need a personal injury lawyer who is familiar with Wisconsin’s OWI laws. You may find firms with combined expertise.
Always check with friends and family and the local bar association for names of lawyers who you should contact.
How Well Do They Work With Others?
Once you get a few names, set up consultations. Most lawyers offer free consults.
At the meeting with the lawyer, try to gauge how the lawyer interacts with you. Can you get simple explanations, or are you being peppered with legalese that the lawyer doesn’t explain? How comfortable are you with what the lawyer wants you to do? You want someone who can explain, in simple terms, the laws affecting your case, and who does not try to push you to sue for things that you are not comfortable pursuing.
