Legal Minute: Choosing an Injury Lawyer

You don’t need an injury lawyer, until you do. And sometimes you do.

How do you pick one? Getting the right injury lawyer may be the difference between keeping your home and losing it.

Injury lawyers all look alike on the internet. Great teeth, nice hair. They all say the same thing. Trusted, respected, successful.

But are they? Not really.

How can you tell the difference between the good, the bad and the ugly?

1. Ask questions.

How much trial experience does the lawyer have?

How often will I meet with my lawyer?

Will I get to speak to my lawyer or just his staff?

How long will the claim take?

What are my chances of success?

What happens if I lose?

How will I be billed by the lawyer?

What is my case worth?

2. Ask around.

Your real estate lawyer. The lawyer who did your will. Any lawyer.

Your surgeon, your doctor, your physio, your OT.

Your insurance broker.

Remember, you don’t necessarily need an injury lawyer, until you do. So choose wisely when the time comes.
