Finding the right attorney for a personal injury case can seem like an insurmountable task. Googling the term “injury attorney” will result in hundreds of thousands of different websites, professionals and information for your review.
In Tampa, there are much easier ways to find a quality attorney for any type of personal injury case. There is nothing wrong with using the internet, but it is a better tool to learn more about a handful of qualified and potential lawyers rather than trying to look through hundreds of law firms in the city.
Injury, or more commonly personal injury, is really an umbrella term for an area of practice. Within this general area, an injury attorney will typically specialize in one or more subcategories.
By reviewing the attorney’s information online to learn about areas of specialization, it is easy to narrow down your choice. Specialization areas can include truck, auto or motorcycle accidents, product liability, medical malpractice, slip, and fall or even dog bite injuries.
Another area of specialization in Tampa is in cruise ship injury cases or for boating accidents. In these cases, the attorney will also need to understand the federal maritime law and how it applies to your case.
It will be important to look at not just one big landmark settlement with any injury attorney, but rather as a holistic picture of how their cases settle. The vast majority of these cases do not go to court, so ask about litigation experience and the outcome of these cases.
Ask for Recommendations
If you know friends, family or colleagues who have used a personal injury attorney in the past, ask for recommendations. Talk to these people about the overall experience to help you to decide if this attorney and his or her representation style will be the best for your case.
