What Type of Lawyer Do I Need for a Car Accident?

It sometimes seems that we are inundated with constant billboards, commercials, and radio spots advertising local personal injury attorneys. With such a wide array of choices, how are car accident victims supposed to make the right choice of representation? How can San Antonio accident victims and their families find an attorney who will ensure they win the compensation they deserve? The reality is that, just like any other profession, the quality of legal representation depends highly on the background and experience of any given car accident attorney.

What type of lawyer do I need for a car accident? Thousands of car accident victims ask themselves this question every year. By applying the following criteria to your search for an attorney to represent your car accident injury lawsuit, you can eliminate unqualified personal injury lawyers and make the best decision for your claim. Before making a final decision on representation for your car accident injury lawsuit, be sure to schedule a case review to learn more about an attorney’s qualifications.

Lawyers With Specialty Practice Areas in Car Accident Injury Law

First and foremost, it is important to recognize that not all personal injury lawyers have the same specialty practice areas. Some personal injury attorneys may specialize in burn accident, workplace injuries, child neglect, or sexual abuse lawsuits. Many personal injury attorneys, however, specialize in car accident or commercial vehicle injury law. These attorneys are the best choice to effectively navigate the particular legal complexities of your claim.

Additionally, it is best to consider an attorney’s experience with the car accident laws in your state. While a car accident injury attorney operating out of Louisiana may be able to help with your claim, an attorney based in Texas and familiar with Texas’ accident laws would be the most effective choice.

Lawyers With Prior Experience Representing Car Accident Victims

Just as not all personal injury lawyers have the same specialty practice areas, not all car accident attorneys have the same practical experience representing San Antonio car wreck victims. If an attorney has represented victims of similar car accidents in the past (for example, victims of drunk driving or commercial vehicle accidents), they are likely to be more familiar with the challenges presented by your lawsuit.

Lawyers Who Have Successfully Reclaimed Damages for Their Clients

Lastly, a car accident lawyer’s past track record with their clients can give you an idea of what to expect for your claim. Did their past clients receive settlements that covered their economic AND non-economic losses? Was the attorney able to settle their clients’ cases outside of court or were their clients eventually forced to pursue lengthy legal battles? Many attorneys will provide client testimonies and even allow you to speak with previous accident victims they have represented. If an attorney or law firm has managed to reclaim fair compensation for the majority of their past clients, you can reasonably expect they will be able to do the same for you.
