% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Okay, let’s get the first things out of the way first. If you have suffered a severe and grievous injury due to an automobile accident, you do need an auto accident attorney. It is not just about the compensation; the legal expert can help you determine the exact compensation with respect to the property/physical damage and mental trauma.

Look for a San Jose car accident lawyer if you are a local and if you are on the lookout for the recovery of losses. Additionally, keep in mind that besides the proper legal counsel the auto accident attorney is also responsible for arranging all the necessary paperwork as well as an appropriate representation of your rights as far a court case is concerned. 

Let us have a look at all the necessary information about a personal injury lawyer that you need to know before hiring one.

Not all cases require the legal help

There are several day-to-day and straightforward vehicular accidents. These so-called fender benders are easy to settle with a phone call to the insurance provider. The insurance service is willing to pay up for the damages since the cost is negligible. However, in case the accident is serious with severe property and physical damage, the situation gets complicated. In such instances, you need the proper legal representation for estimating the nature and the amount of the compensation as well as a favorable outcome of the case.

Factors to consider while hiring

Keep in mind the licensure and the certification of your attorney. This is extremely important as there are federal laws that make it illegal for a legal professional to practice without adequate license.

You need to research in detail about the user reviews and ratings of the legal counsel in question before hiring to make sure of the reputation and the authenticity of the professional. It is also essential to go for a local legal representative as it will be economical concerning both time and money.

Inquire about the niche of the legal aid. There are several personal injury cases, and the personal injury attorneys have specializations with respect to the type of the case the professional handles.

Time it right while hiring the attorney

The timing is everything when you hire an auto accident attorney. There is a statute of limitation when it comes to claiming after an automobile accident. You will have to prepare official documents and supply all the required proof within the allocated time after the date of the crash. So, it is imperative to hire the attorney as soon as possible after the accident.

The fees

You don’t have to pay a single dollar as fees for the attorney if you don’t receive a favorable outcome. Keep in mind that if there is a favorable outcome, then you will have to pay around 33-40% of the net proceeds to the attorney as the fee. This is, however, the general structure, and there are always exceptions to the case. But paying up more doesn’t necessarily mean you are working with the best.

Make your choice after careful and thorough research. Go for an attorney with the higher win-settlement ratio and a willingness to represent your best interests diligently.
