How the Right San Diego Car Accident Lawyer Can Get You More Money?
February 24th, 2021
By Omid Rejali, Esq.
There are many San Diego Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyers in San Diego. Choosing the right one can have a significant impact on the amount of money you will ultimately get for your injuries.
1) Make Sure You Look Into Your Attorneys Reputation and Character
The best way to do this is to ask other attorneys you may know if they have ever heard of the attorney you are about to hire. Another way to do this is by looking online through sites such as google, yelp or avvo. Be very wary of the online reviews. These days, there are many companies that will write personal injury firms reviews for a fee. Other things you would want to look into are, how long the firm has been in practice, how long has the attorney been licensed and more importantly what he or she has accomplished throughout those years.
In this industry, it is easy to make a quick buck. If you have been seriously injured you want to make sure that the attorney who represents you has a good reputation in the community, and will have your best interest in mind.
2) Trial Experience
I cannot stress this one out enough. Many attorneys may tout on their websites and hold themselves out as trial lawyers, but they have not done a single trial in their life. What they do is they will take your case, and when it comes time to try the case, they will at that point bring in trial lawyers, such as myself, to try the case.
This can have negative implications on your case because they are not working up your case with an eye towards trial. And also, the attorney who does have trial experience may be able to get you a better result much faster, prior to getting to trial because the insurance companies know who they are dealing with.
3) Use of Experts
Many attorneys recommend settling the case the moment they realize they have to spend money out of their own pocket. This is not to say that every case warrants hiring of experts, but the decision to hire experts or not, should not be made on the fact that your attorney does not want to spend money on your case. More so, many attorneys don't want to take expert depositions and will recommend that you settle your case for that reason. Money should never be a factor in settling your case. If you feel that your attorney is recommending settlement because of money, you are entitled to get a second opinion.
