Referrals from Family and Friends
One of the easiest ways to begin your search for the right personal injury attorney is to ask for referrals from family and friends. If anyone has had a good experience with a lawyer that handled their injury claims, you can add them to the initial list. In the same vein, if family or friends had a negative experience with a personal injury attorney, you can cross them off as a potential lawyer for your case.
Review Firms Online
After consulting with family and friends, the next step in a personal injury attorney search is reviewing law firms online. Look at review websites for lawyers and their law firms in the area, and read the reviews left by both satisfied and unsatisfied clients. Add any other potential attorneys to your list after the online research before proceeding to the next step.
Create a List and Schedule Interviews
Once you have an initial list of potential personal injury lawyers, the next step is narrowing down the list specifically to what you need. Are any law firms too far away? Does the attorney not practice personal injury law for the type of accident you were involved in? If there is a reason why a lawyer or a law firm will not work for you, remove them from the list.
Once the list is narrowed down, contact each law office and schedule an interview with the attorney. The majority of Tennessee personal injury lawyers offer free consultations to discuss your injury claim; however, be sure to clarify whether the attorney charges for an initial visit when you schedule an appointment. If you do not wish to pay for an initial consultation, remove those lawyers from your list.
Find the Best Fit for You
Finally, the initial consultation is the opportunity to find the personal injury attorney that is the best fit for you. Come prepared with a list of questions and all the documentation that the lawyer will need to provide you with an accurate evaluation of your personal injury claims. You will be sharing personal and medical details with your lawyer over the course of the case, so you should feel comfortable with your lawyer and trust in their ability to zealously advocate for your injury claims.
