Choosing a Car Accident Lawyer


After you’re injured in a car accident, finding the right lawyer can influence your ability to receive all the accident benefits you are entitled to, and possibly compensation from the other driver. Choosing a car accident lawyer involves determining the lawyer’s qualifications and legal style, and deciding if these characteristics align with what you expect from your lawyer.

Begin your search by selecting a handful of accident lawyers you think may have potential. You can find lawyers  within a certain area by performing an Internet search, and by asking friends and acquaintances for references.

You can learn a lot from some lawyers’ websites. On these sites, you may find lawyer profiles that will tell you more about the experience, education and past achievements of the lawyers at the firm. You can also learn about the firm, specifically the types of cases they handle. From this information, you may come up with some questions to ask the accident lawyer.


Once you have a pool of potential lawyers, it is best to schedule consultations with as many of them as possible. These consultations are an opportunity to learn about the accident lawyer and to make comparisons. During a consultation, you should learn more about his or her qualifications, including:

  • Educational background
  • Legal experience
  • Experience with car accident cases
  • Legal strategies and practice philosophy

Generally, your lawyer should handle car accident cases and other cases stemming from injuries caused by negligence. An lawyer who routinely represents people injured in motor vehicle accidents and personal injury cases will know how to navigate these cases and how to develop a legal strategy with the greatest potential for success.

Legal experience is important. Lawyers who have been practicing for many years have more experience with the legal system. This type of lawyer knows the accident benefits you are eligible for, and will fight to recover compensation from all the benefits to which you are entitled.

After your consultation, you should feel confident in the lawyer's  ability to handle your case if you decide to choose the lawyer. If you are not comfortable with the lawyer or have doubts about his or her legal strategy, you may want to schedule consultations with other lawyers before making a decision.
