A Fairfax Personal Injury Lawyer is There When You’re in Need
Although a Fairfax personal injury lawyer may not be necessary, and I may encourage accident victims to settle their accident case on their own, I don’t turn people away without providing some sound advice. First, there’s my book, Get It Settled! The Accident Victim’s Guide to Settling Your Case Without Hiring a Lawyer, which can be ordered online or by mail, and may save you a trip to my office.
Next, there’s the free consultation that most lawyers offer to accident victims. During the consultation, your accident case details will be reviewed, which may help you decide that you don’t need a lawyer.
I’m also proud to be one of the few lawyers that offer a coaching session to those who want to settle their case on their own, but would still like a little help from a lawyer.
Not all lawyers will take these extra steps to help accident victims that aren’t pursuing high-settlement claims. In fact, some lawyers may even turn away clients that have an accident case already in progress. A good lawyer will at least give your case a once-over to help you decide whether you need a lawyer at any stage of the settlement process.
Finding the Right Fairfax Personal Injury Lawyer
If it’s come to the point where you think you need a lawyer, the following are a few things to look for when searching for the right attorney:
- national or state board-certified;
- rating of nine or higher on Avvo.com;
- listed in Best Lawyers in America;
- listed in SuperLawyers.com;
- “preeminent” rating from Martindale-Hubbell;
- past experience with cases similar to yours;
- examples of successful settlements; and
- authorship of books related to your type of case.
