How to Choose a Personal Injury Attorney 8 Years, 2 Months ago Karma: 0  
Choosing your injury attorney:
1. Check their websites and gather information about them in the internet. Do they have the expertise or capability in the field of personal injury cases?
2. Attorneys that represent injured individuals generally do not also defend in personal injury lawsuits. Call the attorneys office and ask who primarily represent.
3. Find out if the attorney is a member of the personal injury trial lawyers associations like the American Association of Trial Lawyers
4. Visit your states bar association Website or call them to verify if the attorney on your list is reliable and in good standing.
5. Ask family and friends for references before you do hire an attorney. Also, talk to individuals who can comment on your attorneys or lawyers trustworthiness and skills by contacting and asking your lawyers clients.
6. Ask regarding conflict of interest. For instance, does the attorney represent opposing parties? If he defending for instance, an establishment with a personal injury lawsuit, then he may not represent you, who is having a personal injury case.

check Martindale Hubbell or the local state bar directory. Attorney websites are also good for checking profiles and pedigrees.
