How Do I Choose The Right Personal Injury Lawyer?

Personal Injury Lawyer | Mike Lewis Attorneys
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost? That’s a question I’m asked every day. Personal injury attorneys usually take cases on a contingent fee, that simply means the attorney fee is based on the amount he or she can win for you. If your lawyer tries your case and loses, your attorney does not receive an attorney fee, nor do you receive any money for your injuries. Of course, attorney fees are different from costs, and you may be responsible for certain costs associated with your case. That’s a question you will need to ask your attorney before signing any contract.

Attorney Fees

Why do some attorneys charge less than others? Usually, attorneys base their fees on their ability to recover for you. Attorneys with years of experience and a good reputation charge a set percentage and stick to that number. Less experienced attorneys may be willing to cut their fees, but their lack of experience may show in the courtroom or when it comes time to discussing your settlement with the insurance company. The old saying, “You get what you pay for,” often fits in this case. Having an experienced attorney by your side may actually help with your settlement.

Finding the Right Representation

How do I find the right attorney? Usually, I suggest talking to friends and neighbors. You might want to search the internet or Google an attorney you’ve seen on TV. Look at their ratings and read their testimonials. AVVO is also a good source for attorney reviews. You may want to skip the PRO paid ads which many attorneys purchase to be listed first on AVVO’s web site. Simply read the reviews. A “Best Law Firm” and “Best Lawyer” award is usually a good referral. These honors are given by fellow attorneys and meet tough requirements. Take your time and choose wisely. You want this to be a rewarding partnership.
