What to Look for in an Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer

Atlanta car accident lawyer-questions

Choosing the right Atlanta car accident lawyer is like choosing a doctor. You want someone who knows the law, but you also want someone you get along with. Take advantage of your free, initial consultation to get a feel for your attorney. You don’t want to take this decision too lightly.

Experience is Key

Young attorneys can be ambitious and passionate. However, when it comes to your car accident lawsuit, you want to make sure they have experience. It can be intimidating to go up against a big insurance company. Atlanta car accidents with experience know what it takes to negotiate a fair settlement. They also have years of experience handling cases just like yours.

Make Sure They Specialize in Car Accidents and Personal Injury

One of the most important things to check is that your Atlanta car accident lawyer specializes in personal injury. Just because someone did a great job on your divorce, that doesn’t mean they know how to handle a car accident lawsuit. That would be like having a foot doctor deliver your baby. Check their website and make sure they focus on personal injury cases.

Choose an Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Close to You

When you watch television and see those commercials for the huge personal injury firms, they tell you that they’re the best. What they don’t tell you is that their office could be two (2) hours away. During the course of your case, you may have to visit your Atlanta car accident lawyer half a dozen times or more.

That will mean hours upon hours on the road. Not only can this get time-consuming, but it can also get expensive. Try to choose an attorney that is within a reasonable distance from your home or office. This way, when you need to come into the office to sign papers or meet with your attorney, it isn’t a whole day affair.

Don’t Just Pick a Name Off of Google

The internet is a great tool. It helps you get the news and baseball scores. You can even do your grocery shopping online. The one thing you want to be careful about is picking your Atlanta car accident lawyer from a random list of websites. You want to make sure you read the information on their website.

See what their clients have to say about them. Look to make sure they specialize in personal injury. Some lawyers even provide information about your type of case right on their website. This gives you a chance to feel the lawyer out before you make any decisions.

Be Careful Who Your Friend or Family Recommends

If you get hurt in a car accident, the first thing your friend will do is refer you to their lawyer. They’ll tell you how wonderful the attorney was and how much money they got them. The problem with this is you have no idea if you and this other Atlanta car accident lawyer will mesh well.

You want to make sure whoever handles your case specializes in auto accident lawsuits. You also want to make sure they’re going to make time for you. Too many attorneys are so busy that you’re just a number to them. You want an attorney who will dedicate the time you deserve.

Always Call Early to Schedule Your Free Consultation

When it comes to hiring an Atlanta car accident lawyer, nobody says you have to run out and hire one right away. Of course, you’ll want to get all of your medical issues straightened out before you file legal action. You want to make sure you know how serious your damages are. By the same token, you don’t want to wait too long.

In Georgia, you only have two (2) years to file suit. If you go beyond the two years, you’ll miss the statute of limitations filing deadline. Once this happens, you’ll lose your right to sue. You also want to give your attorney ample time to prepare your case. The best thing to do is to call and schedule your free consultation once you’re in a position to deal with the case.

All you have to do is call our office and set up a date and time that works for you. Sit down with an experienced Atlanta car accident lawyer who’s handled dozens of cases just like yours. They’ll give you their honest opinion about your case and let you know what your options are.
