WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

As a result there a bunch of law firms and attorneys to choose from when you are looking to hire an attorney to handle your car accident or other personal injury claim. Here are some things to look for when hiring an attorney for your traffic accident or personal injury claim.

COMMUNITY DRIVEN

FOCUSES ON PERSONAL INJURY CASES

There are many types of personal injury cases such as car accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, the list goes on and on. The injuries sustain in these accidents can range from cuts and bruises to broken bones to even death. When hiring a lawyer to handle your accident claim it is best to find someone that focuses on personal injury cases similar to the one you are experiencing and has been doing so long enough to be skilled at their practice. You would not want a criminal attorney representing you in a divorce? So why have one represent you in a car accident? The law firm of Stokes Stemle focuses only on personal injury cases and can assist you in successfully navigating the injury claims process.

LITIGATION EXPERIENCE

When looking to hire an attorney it is important to find an attorney who has litigation experience and is not afraid to file a lawsuit to make sure you get what you deserve. A lot of personal injury attorneys do not like to file a lawsuit and are scared of going to court. At Stokes Stemle we are not afraid to take your claim to a jury when the situation calls for it. We have filed lawsuits and litigated cases in Montgomery County, Houston County, Autauga County and all over the State of Alabama but we focus mainly on those cases that happen in our area and in our communities.

PROVEN TRACK RECORD

It always helps to hire an attorney with a long list of successful cases. Insurance companies defending cases of personal injury and malpractice are well aware of who the better attorneys are in the area. While evaluating their risk, they always consider the track record of the lawyer representing the plaintiff. Therefore, with a reputed attorney by your side, you can put loads of pressure on the insurance company even before the start of the legal proceedings. At Stokes Stemle our track record speaks for itself. We proudly show our rating on the front page of our website from sources such as Facebook, Google and AVVO of all of our happy clients.

CAN YOU TALK TO YOUR ATTORNEY?

When hiring a lawyer it is important that you are actually able to speak to your lawyer! Are you able to reach your attorney when you have a question or are you just talking to a receptionist all the time? At Stokes Stemle our clients have direct access to their attorneys. We believe that open and honest communication is key to meeting our client’s expectations and maximizing the value of their claims. This is why we have such a great track record with our former clients. We are happy to meet with you to discuss your car accident or personal injury claim. Do not get pushed aside and become just another file on an attorneys desk that they do not want to deal with. If you find yourself in this position currently then you may need to find a new attorney.

WHO IS HANDLING YOUR CASE?

A lot of law firms will take your call and force you to sign a large contract only for you to never speak to them again. Others will handle your case in the early stages but once it comes time to file suit and litigate they assign your case out to someone you have never spoken to before who you may not even get along with and want working for you. It is important to ask who will be handling your case and ask to speak with that attorney right then. If they start coming up with excuses for why your attorney is not available then that could be a sign of things to come. At Stokes Stemle – Personal Injury Attorneys are founding attorneys Jonathan Stokes and Joshua Stemle handle each case personally and will be with you every step of the way.
