When to hire a personal injury lawyer
Written by our personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach
If you are in a serious accident, please keep in mind that the insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters who begin evaluating your claim right away. The best move you can make is to immediately hire a credible law firm with a record of leveling the playing field for its clients.
Our personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach have decades of experience helping car accident victims throughout Hampton Roads, including Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Portsmouth.
If you have been injured in a car accident that you believe was someone else’s fault, you probably are a bit scared and have a lot of questions. One of the first questions probably revolves around whether you are going to need a lawyer or whether you can handle your claim on your own.
As we stated in the beginning of this article, you ARE going to need a personal injury lawyer if you want to recover the compensation that is rightfully yours.
There are many ways to search for the top personal injury lawyers in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, or Portsmouth.
Here are two recommendations:
• Select a personal injury lawyer or law firm that represents only plaintiffs (and doesn’t defend insurance companies) and limits their practice to personal injury claims and related matters such as workers’ compensation and employment law. Avoid the jack of all trades, master of nothing lawyers or firms that handle everything under the sun. It is very difficult to competently handle various areas of the law. Specialization and experience win the day!
• Look at the law firm’s reviews. In the Internet age, not performing well has a way of rearing its head and alerting others. A majority of our personal injury business comes from referrals by former and current clients who have been satisfied with our work and results.
