What to Consider When Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney

Go beyond education and credentials to make sure you choose a lawyer who really cares about your case

Choosing a personal injury firm to represent you when you are at your most vulnerable can be a difficult decision. After you or a loved one has experienced an injury due to the recklessness or negligence of another, it can be hard to know who to trust.

The Atlanta-based personal injury lawyers at Mulholland & Sutlive, LLC, believe that finding a personal injury attorney to really rely on is one of the most important steps in filing a claim or entering into a lawsuit. Read on for a list of things to consider when making this decision.

Credibility of a Personal Injury Law Firm

Finding a lawyer that has a good reputation helps ensure that you’re not being taken advantage of. If they have helped other people get the results they deserve, there is a very good chance that they can help you, too. Check websites that rate lawyers, post reviews or testimonials, and highlight top lawyers in the field; this will help you get an idea of how personal injury lawyers are doing in comparison to each other. Mulholland & Sutlive, LLC, has top ratings on several attorney review and rating sites, and has been included in exclusive lists of elite lawyers for years.

If you get a call or are approached right after an accident, be careful. This is a practice called “ambulance chasing”; it is illegal in Georgia and is not something credible law firms do.

Will the Personal Injury Firm Meet With You for Free?

Check to see if the firm you’re interested in offers free consultations or case evaluations. Having your case explained without having to pay for it is essential. A consultation should be something free of incentives.

We offer a free case consultation to evaluate your situation and help you sort out your claim without ever having to pay out-of-pocket.

Review the Firm’s Specialization and Experience

Picking a personal injury attorney that has experience in the field is important. Check to see if your attorney has experience with cases like yours, or – even better – if they specialize in cases like yours. There are many firms that focus on car accidents, workplace accidents, or medical malpractice. If you look, there will be an attorney who specializes in cases similar to yours.

Understand All the Fees and Expenses

Make sure you know what the fees and expenses will be upfront. Many good firms do not collect fees unless you get paid. Know what percentage the firm will charge and what sort of things will be billed as expenses before you sign anything.

Mulholland & Sutlive, LLC, in Atlanta offers a No Win, No Fee Promise, which ensures that you pay our firm nothing unless we help you win your case. We believe that no one should have to dig into their savings to pay for good legal representation.
