Choosing a Lawyer

How Do I Choose a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Choosing the right Personal Injury Lawyer can be a big decision. There are a few reasons for this. First, picking the right lawyer can mean the difference in making sure that you’re properly compensated. Second, your lawyer is someone that you’ll be working with closely for a while. Personal injury cases can take many months or years to resolve, and having a good relationship with your lawyer is vital to maximizing your recovery.

Experienced, Tenacious, and Practical Personal Injury Lawyers

At Marcotte Law Firm, our Lowell Lawyers feel that the right lawyer is one that is both experienced and tenacious. The importance of experience is obvious. Every case has hurdles, twists, and turns. Having a lawyer who has gone through these processes before can be invaluable to making sure that your case proceeds smoothly. That’s not to say that a young lawyer cannot be experienced, but having yours be the first personal injury case that your lawyer is taking might put you at a disadvantage.

Along with experience, your lawyer must be tenacious. Many more experienced attorneys can become complacent. They know what they’re doing, and they don’t need to work as hard to get the results that you think you’re getting. That’s why you need a lawyer who will also leave no stone unturned in pursuing your case. Every case, whether it’s a car accident or a work injury, has its surprises, and it’s best to have a lawyer who will uncover them as early as possible so that things that were missed don’t come back to haunt you in the end.

Finally, you need a lawyer who is practical. A personal injury attorney is one that resolves your case as quickly and efficiently as possible, while also maximizing your recovery. Sometimes that means a long, drawn out fight with the insurance company. Other times, it might be best to settle before going to court. A practical lawyer will look at your case, use his or her experience to predict where the case will go, and make a recommendation to you. If going to court and spending 3 years litigating won’t make you any more money, why waste time?

Lawyers Who Are Relatable

Having the best lawyer is great, but what good is it if you aren’t able to talk to him or her? This entails a few things. First, you need an attorney who will answer your calls, emails, and questions. Your lawyer works for you, and you deserve a timely response. That’s not to say that your lawyer might not be able to get back to you for a couple days during a busy period. But, the response should always come in an appropriate amount of time.

Second, you need an attorney who you have a good rapport with. Pursuing a personal injury case entails a lot of discussions about sensitive topics. You’ll have to discuss your medical history, your medical condition, and how your injury has affected you on a day to day basis. If you don’t feel comfortable with your lawyer, you won’t be able to communicate with him/her, and your case will suffer.
