Choosing an Auto Accident Lawyer


If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you have a number of legal options. You can choose to do nothing and let your insurance company handle it, you can handle it on your own or hire an attorney. All of these are viable options, but the decision is up to you. In this article from The Echavarria Law Firm, PLLC, we’ll talk about what to look for in an auto accident lawyer and how to avoid common mistakes like hiring based on advertising alone or only getting a recommendation from someone else who hired them once before.”

Get information from your insurance company.

Get information from your insurance company.

Your car insurance provider can give you a copy of your policy and tell you what it covers. It’s also important to know how much money the company will pay if there is an accident, known as the “limits.” The limits are different for each person based on factors such as age and driving record. You may want to get a copy of this information before talking with an attorney so that they know exactly what kind of help they can provide you with after an accident.

Don’t rely on your lawyer’s advertising.

Don’t rely on your lawyer’s advertising.

While lawyers are allowed to advertise their services, they are not allowed to provide free legal advice or solicit clients in any way. Additionally, they cannot offer a free consultation (although this is not always the case). If you find an attorney who claims otherwise, it’s best to move along and find someone else who isn’t violating the rules of professional conduct by advertising in such a way.

Look for experience, not just certifications.

Certifications are important, but they don’t necessarily mean that an attorney has experience. Look for an attorney who has handled similar cases in the past.

Also consider how long the lawyer has been practicing law and if he or she is a member of any professional organizations.

Make sure you are comfortable talking with your potential lawyer about your personal medical history and family life.

You also want to make sure you can communicate with your lawyer. You need to feel comfortable talking about your personal medical history and family life. If the lawyer does not understand these things, it could affect how he or she handles your case.

For instance, if you have two kids who were born prematurely and have special needs, the accident may have affected them differently than it did other family members who were not hurt in this way. In addition, if one child has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which affects behavior and social interaction skills in children between three and 18 years old,[1] that should be taken into account when discussing settlement options with an insurance company or during trial proceedings if necessary.[2]

You want to find an attorney who is honest, trustworthy and understanding of your needs

When you’re looking for an auto accident lawyer, the most important thing to keep in mind is that you want to find someone who will be honest with you and trustworthy. You should also look for an attorney who understands your needs and is willing to take the time to understand your case.

An auto accident lawyer should be a partner in your case rather than just another hired hand or employee of a firm–and this means making sure that he or she has experience representing clients like yours (with similar injuries).


We hope that this article has helped you understand how to choose an auto accident lawyer and we wish you the best with your case.
