In the immediate aftermath of your injury, it is impossible to know what your case is worth. An attorney who has handled many previous car accident claims is well positioned to evaluate what happened, guide you through your recovery while you receive treatment for your injuries, and take steps aimed at maximizing compensation for you. When there is sufficient information about your injuries, medical expenses, other losses, and recovery period, an experienced attorney can make a reasonable estimate of the value of your case. An attorney who has already handled hundreds or even thousands of cases will have a strong network of experts and investigators to help build your case. Look for someone with a strong strategic sense developed over time and who knows whether to take an insurance company’s best offer or whether litigation is necessary. Your attorney’s reputation is also a key factor in getting good results. An attorney with a strong reputation will be treated with the utmost respect by insurance adjusters, lawyers for the other side, and if litigation is necessary, by judges. This respect is not merely abstract, it translates into favorable settlements and favorable results at trial. In short, when picking someone to fight for you, it makes sense to pick a champion who has been there before and has the track record to prove it.
