How do you find a good personal injury lawyer?

If you are dealing with personal injury, you probably also need a personal injury lawyer. If you start looking for a lawyer, you will see that the selection is immense. It can therefore be very difficult to find a suitable lawyer. What should you actually pay attention to and how do you find a specialized personal injury lawyer?

What is personal injury?

You can sustain personal injury if something goes wrong through no fault of your own. For example, you can break a leg in a car accident if someone else does not adhere to the priority rules. You can also sustain personal injury due to a medical error, for example if an error was made during an operation. You can also suffer personal injury in the event of a robbery, for example if you are injured after someone has stolen your bag, or because you are a victim of senseless violence.

Personal injury lawyer and LSA

LSA is the association where personal injury lawyers can join. Not every lawyer can simply join the association. You must meet strict requirements to be affiliated with the LSA. For example, you must have five years of work experience as a personal injury lawyer. You must also have successfully completed the Grotius Personal Injury Training course. These are not the only requirements for being affiliated. For example, you must also ensure that your knowledge remains up to date and that you stay informed of changes in the law. The personal injury lawyer must do this by following ongoing training. So if you work with a lawyer who is affiliated with the LSA, you know that you are dealing with a professional.

What are your own requirements?

It is important to carefully consider what your own requirements are from a personal injury lawyer. Every lawyer works in his own way and you will have to consider what you like and what your preferences are. Would you rather there be a settlement? Or are you more in favor of a lawsuit? It is also important that it feels good to do business with someone. Do you agree with the lawyer’s ideas or does it not feel right? As soon as you have a bad feeling about it, it’s better to find someone else.

Losing the case

Some injury lawyers work with a system called no cure no pay. This means you don’t have to pay if they don’t win the case. This also means that some lawyers will not take the case if they are taking too much risk and they will play it pretty safe. So consider carefully whether you want a lawyer who works on a no cure no pay basis, or who does not use this method.

Always have a conversation with the personal injury lawyer

When choosing a personal injury lawyer, always have a consultation first. Make sure you know what his vision is and how he thinks he can solve the problems. Does he want to file a claim for damages or does he have completely different plans? Does he have your best interests at heart anyway? Since you will have to deal with the personal injury lawyer a lot, it is very important that you feel good when you talk to him. If this is not the case, it is better to look for someone else. You can have a no-obligation consultation with any personal injury lawyer.
