A major factor when considering a personal injury attorney is whether or not the lawyer is experienced in personal injury law and dealing with insurance companies. Although most injuries claims are settled before trial, retaining an attorney who is a skilled litigator builds value to settling your case. Additionally, no matter how experienced the attorney is, you need to make sure that you and the attorney both agree to a settlement goal. Do you want to obtain a certain settlement amount with as few costs and as little hassle as possible, or do you want to obtain as much as possible, no matter how long it takes? The most important thing is to feel confident with the lawyer's experience and comfortable with how you will proceed with your case.
