When you’ve been injured in an accident, have lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence or find yourself the victim of New York dental malpractice or medical malpractice, finding the right attorneys matters.Unfortunately, many people don’t know what to look for in a lawyer. In addition, making good, reasoned decisions can be difficult in the wake of an accident. You may be in pain, worried about your ability to return to work and distracted by concerns about your family’s future.
These tips will help you determine which New York personal injury lawyers are in the best position to help you.
Most personal injury cases settle, so you may not think it’s important that your personal injury lawyers have trial experience. However, you can’t predict how your case will unfold in advance. Your attorneys must be prepared to go to trial if that’s the best course of action in your case. Even if your case doesn’t go to trial, the fact that opposing counsel knows that your lawyers can and will skillfully try the case can impact settlement offers.
Some personal injury lawyers handle a wide range of cases, while others devote most of their time to a particular type of case. If you have a complex claim such as a commercial boating accident injury or a medical malpractice claim, for example, you probably won’t want to entrust that case to an attorney who has only handled car accident cases.
Complex litigation requires a significant investment of time and money. Your attorneys must be prepared to work for a year or more without receiving payment, and will often be required to advance payment for costly experts, testing and other trial preparation. A new, young, solo attorney may be fully invested in your case, but be sure to ask the questions necessary to determine whether he can adequately support the litigation.
Skills, experience, willingness to go to trial and resources are all important factors when choosing an attorney. But, it’s important to remember that you will be entrusting important matters to your personal injury lawyer and must have confidence in him or her.
