Tips for Hiring a Car Accident Lawyer

Posted in on March 2, 2018

No one wants to get into a car accident, but it happens. Fortunately, the number of fatal and injury-causing car crashes in Colorado decreased by 1.4 percent in 2017. However, there were 3,668 of these crashes last year. It could happen to you, and if it does, you’ll want to know how to find the right car accident lawyer to get you a settlement for your injuries.

Use these tips to find the best car accident attorney for you:

Attend a free consultation

Most accident lawyers offer to review your case for free. If possible, take the time to sit down with the attorney, see how you get along, and if they seem like someone you can trust. If you pull the trigger before a face-to-face meeting, you might choose a lawyer that isn’t a good fit for you, and that will hurt your case.

Check the fees

Look at your prospective attorney’s website or make a call to find out how they assess legal fees. Make sure they charge fees on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t pay fees unless you receive damages. You don’t want to owe legal fees if your case doesn’t get a settlement.

Hire local

If you have a choice between a local and an out-of-state lawyer, choose the local one. A local attorney knows local laws, local courts, and local juries. Because of their proximity, they have a familiarity that an outsider simply doesn’t have. Hire a local accident lawyer who can effectively navigate the process of getting you a settlement for you injuries.

Find someone with experience

An accident lawyer who’s had years of experience handles a case better than a greenhorn straight out of law school. Ask a prospective attorney how long they’ve been practicing law, and how many car accident cases they’ve had. If you’re satisfied with the answer they give, consider hiring them.
