There are hundreds of auto accident attorneys out there, and all of them claim to be able to get you more money. To some extent this is true, because any attorney is better than no attorney, but if you want to have the best chances of getting the most compensation for your injuries, you need to work with the right attorney. Here are some tips for choosing an auto accident attorney:
Local experience is a plus. Some lawyers may have a lot of experience but may not know the local court system. An attorney who has been practicing locally knows and is known by the courts as well as the insurance personnel of the local offices. This may help you get better compensation from the get-go.
Local experience also means that you should be able to talk to clients that an attorney has helped locally. He should be able to give you contact information to talk to previous clients.
In addition to local experience, you want to make sure your attorney knows how to deal with insurance companies. Auto accidents are routine for insurance companies and they have worked out the science of paying you less. An attorney who knows their tricks is better equipped to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Finally, it’s important to work with an attorney who is prepared to go to trial in your case. It won’t always be necessary, but insurance companies know they can just keep offering lowball settlements if your attorney is not prepared to go to trial.
Attorney Anthony Carbone has been practicing law in Hudson County for over 20 years and is prepared to fight for you against the tricks of the insurance company, even if it means going to trial.
