Unless you have been seriously injured before in a car accident or other incident, chances are you do not know who to turn to for legal guidance when an injury does occur. There are many lawyers in Pennsylvania who will represent you in a personal injury lawsuit, but they are not all equally skilled at doing so.
What factors should you consider when determining which law firm to enlist for representation? Here are some key qualities to look for, all of which the attorneys at Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George bring to the table:
Experience — The insurance companies you will deal with employ attorneys who work on injury claims every day, all day. You need that same kind of experience in your corner. Our attorneys have over 90 years of combined experience in personal injury litigation. We understand the tactics that insurance defense lawyers use to minimize the amount the insurance provider pays out. We know how to combat those tactics and maximize the amount clients recover.
Hire a lawyer who litigates — Some injury lawyers have never seen the inside of a courtroom. If an insurance company wants to take a case to trial, these nonlitigating lawyers refer the case to another firm. That puts your case at a disadvantage before negotiations even begin. We prepare every case as if it will go to trial. That way, if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation, we are ready to represent you in court. Before you hire an attorney, ask if he or she has produced positive outcomes through litigation.
Good communication — One of the most common complaints from clients who switch lawyers in the middle of a case is they are not able to reach their attorney or get updates on the status of their case. We return all calls and emails promptly. We believe that an engaged client is a stronger client, so we want you to know all of your options and the next steps to resolving your case.
Narrow focus — Some law firms take personal injury cases when they come along, but focus on other practice areas such as family law or business transactions. Our firm is completely focused on representing injured parties. We work with highly regarded specialists who investigate accidents and provide medical information in an effective, yet easy-to-understand fashion.
