6 tips
to find the right lawyer
for your case.

Personal injury lawyers can offer some much-needed relief after a serious injury. When you are a victim of these circumstances, you will likely receive letters from dozens of Denver area lawyers, all desperate for your attention. Follow the tips below to sort through the garbage and find the honest, hard-working lawyers that will give you the most quality representation for the suffering you've endured.

  • Pre-existing medical conditions don't negate your claim. Discuss the situation honestly with your lawyer. You do not want her to get sandbagged once you are in court.
  • If you are injured in an accident, do not assume that your worries will end right away. Many soft tissue injuries don’t appear until 2-3 weeks after the accident, leaving people unable to work and take care of their families. If you are injured, and it is someone else's fault, be careful to not settle before you know what the full extent of your injuries are.
  • When you are considering whether to hire a particular personal injury lawyer, make sure you ask questions about their previous case history. Are they willing to litigate a case if necessary? Are they willing to take the case all the way to trial? The insurance companies track this information, and their offers reflect those statistics. Even if your case never goes into litigation or to trial, having a lawyer who is willing to go the distance will make a difference in the results of your case.
  • Hire a lawyer located where the court your personal injury trial will be playing out is located. This ensures they can easily get to the court for your dates, plus they know the local laws and understand them. They may also be familiar with the judges and their personalities, which can benefit your case.
  • Hiring a specialized attorney for personal injury cases is something you may already have thought of, but it's important to find someone even more specialized. For example, if you were in a car accident, find an Arapahoe County lawyer who deals specifically with car accidents. Do the same for workplace injuries or residential accidents.
  • A personal injury attorney can help you with many different aspects of your case, but they can come in particularly handy if you think the statute of limitations is going to run out before you get the settlement you deserve. Go and speak to someone about your options. You may be surprised at how much they can help you.

You should now understand the way a personal lawyer thinks from a marketing perspective. However, don't let this information form your decision before you give the lawyers a chance. Instead, use the advice as guidance during the selection process, together with your natural abilities to judge their character.
