Unexpected medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States. In addition to healthcare expenses, a serious injury can leave you sidelined from work, affect your relationships, and reduce your enjoyment in life.
Although no amount of money can undo the emotional trauma of a severe injury, you may be able to restore financial stability by filing a personal injury claim. Unfortunately, the claims process is riddled with legal complexities – especially if the insurance company denies or undervalues your claim. This is where an experienced personal injury attorney can help.
It is important to remember, though, that just because a lawyer accepts personal injury cases does not necessarily mean that he or she has the knowledge, resources, or litigation experience to represent your interests. As such, you should never commit to an attorney until you have met him or her in person.

Most injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. That means you do not have to pay attorney’s fees or costs unless there is a financial recovery.
The attorney you hire should have a reputation for tough litigator and an impressive case portfolio. When researching a prospective lawyer, look online for reviews from past clients, and during your initial consultation, ask the attorney whether he or she has successfully handled cases that are similar to yours.
Few people consider personality when choosing an attorney, but it is a major factor that will ultimately affect how well you work together. Some personal injury claims take months to resolve; others can take years. As such, it is important that you feel comfortable working with the attorney you hire and that you are confident he or she will give your case the individual attention that it deserves.
