All Georgia attorneys are not created equal. While some provide a high-level of expertise and bring years of knowledge and know-how to the table, others may not even have the correct experience to represent you. This is why you don’t want just any attorney handling your personal injury claim—especially a Georgia semi-truck accident case.
Because no accident victim should settle for less than excellent legal representation, ahead are four strategies that will help you get just the right attorney for your case:
- Make lists. Your mind is probably racing with a million worries following a Peachtree City truck accident. Get your head back into the game by creating lists—questions and to dos. And bring these questions and lists with you when you meet with a lawyer to determine how he can help you.
- Be selfish. In this one area of life, it is okay to be selfish. Many attorneys offer free consultations. You don’t have to settle for the first lawyer whom you meet with. It’s fine to ask questions and move on to the next law firm’s office. This way you can make sure you find a lawyer whom you can work well with and feel comfortable with.
- Focus on the facts. While some of the attorneys you meet with will have similar answers and good advice, others may not have great advice. Listen to what each attorney has to say, and see what you feel the most comfortable with. By focusing on the answers the attorney gives you, you will be able to determine if a lawyer is being honest and has the experience and know-how to get you the best results possible.
- See similar case results. Does the attorney have experience handling similar cases as yours? A simple yes or no won’t suffice. Ask him to show you Georgia semi-truck accident case results and talk about strategies used in these cases.
