How To Choose Your Personal Injury Attorney
When you or a loved one has been injured, you want the offender to make things right and you want justice. And that means hiring the best personal injury attorney in Michigan. There are many options but we are here to help you narrow your search. While hiring a personal injury attorney may seem daunting, especially when you’ve never been through something like this before, The Mike Morse Law Firm team of experienced personal injury attorneys can help.
Here are some tips on How to Choose Your Personal Injury Attorney:
In these days of social media, it’s easier than ever to ask your friends and family for a referral of a personal injury attorney they have used and liked – and who got them results. You can also inquire at the local bar association for a list of referrals.
Once you have a handful of options, head to the Internet to find out if a particular personal injury attorney would be a good fit for your case. Check each attorney’s Web site for background, track record of case results and what types of claims he or she generally handles. For instance, you may not want to go with an attorney who has been known for representing insurance companies. You need to find a personal injury attorney who represents people like you who’ve been injured and need help.
Schedule an initial consultation
Most initial meetings with a prospective personal injury attorney are at no cost to you. At the Mike Morse Law Firm, we offer free consultations for potential clients so we can discuss your case and see how we can help. And here at our firm, accident victims can walk in without an appointment and be seen and helped right away.
You’ll also be able to learn more about your attorney, how he or she handles cases and what the expected outcome could potentially be for your case.
Find out how your case will be treated — and settled
Once you think you’ve found the right personal injury attorney, be sure to ask – and get straight answers – about what fees will be collected and when. You’ll also want to know exactly who is handling your case: Will there be one main attorney or several associates involved? Also, inquire about how you will be communicating about the case — how often, initiated by whom and by phone, email or in person.
You should also ask how long the case should take to be resolved. Will it most likely be settled or will you have to go to court? If it will be settled, talk about your expectations: Do you want a higher amount of money or a quick resolution? Obviously, things are not always foreseeable, but your experienced Michigan personal injury attorney should have a good idea of how it will play out. At the Mike Morse Law Firm, we have a proven process for success and we provide all of this information to every client at the time of your first free consultation.
Make sure you and your attorney are on the same page
You want your personal injury attorney to have the same goals for your case as you do. If he or she is interested in sidestepping the results you’re looking for, you may need to keep looking.
A good personal injury attorney ALWAYS has your best interests in mind.
Sign a retainer agreement
Once you decide on a personal injury attorney, make sure he or she will sign a retainer agreement that outlines your financial agreement about the case.
