What to Look for in a Santa Clarita Personal Injury Lawyer

When seeking legal assistance in filing a claim for compensation following an injury accident, it may become difficult deciding what traits are important to you. In general, there are a few things you should be searching for in personal injury attorney that can handle your situation for you in addition to your personal preferences.

There are several traits that mark successful and effective personal injury lawyers and The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus is confident that their legal team meets these marks.

  • Legal Focus: First, it is important to remember that not all lawyers are necessarily effective personal injury lawyers. The field of personal injury law is much different than other areas and therefore, you should look for someone whose legal focus is primarily on personal injury law. This means that their professional mindset is in recovering compensation for innocent injury victims like you.
  • Past Results: Within the field of personal injury attorneys, there are many that claim to have the abilities and knowledge your case requires. However, given the nature of the legal field, these claims can be proven or disproven by looking at the track record of one of these legal professionals. Past case results will reflect just how effective and able a personal injury attorney is in prosecuting personal injury claims for clients.
  • Relevance: When you have examined the past successes of a potential lawyer, the next step is to determine whether they will be able to assist you in your specific situation. There are many different types of personal injury claims and some areas involve more complex theories than others. Finding a personal injury with experience is one thing, finding one with the experience you specifically need is another.
  • Quantitative Experience: As mentioned above, the past tells a good amount about a personal injury lawyer and their capabilities. Another simple question to ask is how much legal experience this person has. This has to do with both how long they have been practicing personal injury law, how many cases they have handled within that timeframe, how many of those cases they have won or lost and why. The more experience with cases, the better because even losses can produce valuable lessons that may benefit your situation in the future.
  • Qualitative Experience: One last thing to consider when searching for a personal injury attorney to handle your case is the size of cases they have handled. While it is true that cases won demonstrate certain qualities, the size of those cases will tell of the individual's true gifts. Whether or not your case is a million-dollar claim, having someone who has experienced the pressure and difficulties of such large cases will tell of their aggression, determination and creative abilities.

When you are injured in an accident and left with the steep costs of the aftermath, choosing the right personal injury lawyer can be a very pivotal moment in your recovery. The compensation you receive for the accident will assist you in recovering and moving on from this incident.

Therefore, you need someone who can help you recover what you deserve and need for your specific situation. At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, we are confident that you can find the personal injury attorney you're looking for within our experienced team of legal professionals.
