Choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, choosing a personal injury law firm will be one of the most important decisions that you make. When you are facing mounting medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation costs, and lost wages due to time missed from work, you will need a personal injury lawyer who has the skills and experience to get you the compensation that you deserve.
It is important to evaluate the following factors when choosing a personal injury law firm. Working with an attorney who possesses these attributes will greatly increase your likelihood of a successful outcome to your claim.
You should always choose a firm that makes personal injury law the primary focus of their practice. Your lawyer should also have extensive experience handling the same type of case you need assistance on.
The laws governing personal injury cases are very complex and vary based on the state you live in and the type of injury you have suffered. Your lawyer must possess a thorough understanding of all the state laws that apply to your claim.
Make sure your lawyer is committed to giving your case the attention it deserves. Many high profile law firms will get you through the door based on the name and reputation of the partners, but will have your case handled by a less experienced associate. At your initial consultation, ask if the lawyer will be handling all aspects of your case. If not, who will? Who will be your point of contact when you have questions?
By working with a lawyer who is committed to delivering exceptional levels of personalized attention, you can be confident that he will understand your unique needs. This can be crucial in achieving the successful outcome you deserve.
Track Record of Success
Many lawyers have an impressive list of credentials and professional associations. What distinguishes the exceptional personal injury lawyers from the average lawyers is their track record. Make sure to research the verdicts and settlements achieved by your potential lawyer. In particular, does your lawyer have a strong track record of success when handling cases similar to yours?

How will attorneys’ fees and expenses be handled?
Bradford & Albert handle personal injury cases on what’s called a “contingent fee” basis. That means that they receive a fee only if you recover for your injury. No recovery – no fee!

Will there be a fee agreement?
Yes. But, before taking your case, Bradford & Albert will thoroughly explore the merits of your case through discussions with you and investigation of the facts of your case. If you decide to hire Bradford & Albert and they decide to take your case, we will sign a fee agreement that generally provides for a contingent fee (usually some reasonable percentage of the net recovery) plus reimbursement of the firm’s expenses out of the
