If you’ve recently had an accident that resulted in injuries, and someone else was at fault, your first priority is most likely recovering from those injuries. After the recovery process has begun, you are likely to consider taking legal action. However, choosing an attorney can be overwhelming. There are some steps you can take to make the process easier.
First, you should consider hiring someone who specializes in personal injuries. Some personal injury attorneys take some types of personal injury cases but not others, so keep that in mind while you are looking for an attorney. If you already have an attorney who has done other work for you, ask him or her for a recommendation. Also ask family and friends for recommendations. Contact the State Bar of Texas. Search online for attorneys who seem knowledgeable about personal injury.
Once you’ve compiled a list, narrow down the list to your top choices and call the attorneys. Are they willing to consult with you for free? Do they promptly return your calls? Has the attorney ever handled a case like yours before? How much are fees and how are they paid? Does the attorney seem like he or she is concerned about your case? Does the attorney seem knowledgeable about the area of law? Do you feel comfortable with the attorney? Since you and the attorney you choose could be working very closely together, it’s important to choose someone you feel comfortable with.
