If you’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be due compensation – but first, you’ll need to find an accident lawyer to represent you. It’s important to find someone who is trustworthy and will help you claim what you deserve in reparations without cutting corners or settling for an unfair amount of money.
Where Do I Start?
Although finding an accident lawyer may seem daunting – especially if you’re still recovering from your accident, or are experiencing anxiety due to the financial stress your accident has put on you and your family – we promise that there are simple steps to follow to ensure you are matched up with a lawyer who will have your best interests at heart.
How Do I Find the Right Lawyer?
Step 1: Conduct a simple Google search of “Accident Lawyer Near Me” and you will find lawyers who are able to practice in your local area.
Step 2: Ask for recommendations. If you know someone who has claimed for the injury, it may be helpful to try to find a lawyer by personal referral – you may be able to glean more information as to the processes involved and the benefits or drawbacks.
Step 3: Read the reviews. This step is the most important as there are many large firms who deal with hundreds of cases every year, but when you dig a little deeper, you may find that these types of firms are not invested in the success of their clients as much as they are invested in simply processing as many cases as possible. You can find reviews on TrustPilot, Yelp, Feefo, Facebook, Free Index and more.
Step 4: Speak to a representative on the phone. It’s difficult to get an idea of how competent and how invested a lawyer is over email, so we always recommend at least speaking on the phone, or better meeting in person to discuss your claim. You will get a better understanding of exactly how your case will be represented, and what your chances of success are.
Step 5: Stay local. We recommend choosing a firm which is local to your area. They are more likely to understand the complexities of your case, will always be nearby should you need anything urgently, and are often more personally invested in seeing your case succeed.
