How to choose a car wreck attorney

Unfortunately, you’ve been injured in a car wreck due to another person’s negligence. You believe you’re eligible for compensation. However, you may wonder if you need an attorney and how to find a good one. You’re in the right place!

First, you don’t need an attorney to file a personal injury claim. Although those who work with a legal professional tend to win higher settlements, and working with a good car wreck attorney will make a massive impact on the outcome of your case.

Picking an attorney that’s right for you


Do they only handle car wrecks, or are they a “Jack/Jill” of all trades? Beware of the attorney who handles divorce, bankruptcy, worker’s compensation, home closings, and the occasional car wreck case. Think of attorneys like doctors. For example, if your teeth hurt, you would not go to a podiatrist; likewise, if your foot hurt, you would not see a dentist. You should always consult an attorney who only handles car wreck cases because the “Jack of all trades” will not have the depth of knowledge in handling car wreck claims. They also won’t know your rights regarding your property damage claim, bodily injury claim, and the other driver’s obligations.

Check the firm’s reviews

According to LocaliQ, close to 90% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. Google reviews give your business credibility. Clients leaving positive reviews go a long way in promoting your business. However, negative reviews can negatively impact your business, preventing them from doing business with you. With that being said, you want to know what their former and current clients are saying about their firm. Their reviews will be a good indication of whether you should do business with them.

Proven track record

You want to know that the firm has the resources to progress your case. In other words, you want to know that the firm has invested in process policy procedures to ensure they can move your case forward.


Lack of communication is never a good thing, especially not when it comes to someone handling your personal injury case. Lack of communication is one of the clients’ top complaints when dealing with lawyers. You need to make sure you’re hiring a lawyer that will be responsive. Try it out. Give them a call. Do you have to go through a phone tree, or will a person pick up the phone?

Will they fight for you

Will your attorney listen and hear your story, and will they fight for you? Of course, you need to be heard, and somebody must fight for you. Find an attorney who will put in the work and go the extra mile for you.
