Do I need a personal injury lawyer?
Many victims of injury try to handle their case through their insurance carrier without the assistance of an experienced attorney. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney immediately after an accident so that you know your rights and the full value of your case. An insurance company will almost always seek to limit your claim and persuade you to waive your rights when possible. That's their job — collect premiums and deny claims. Consequently, you should select an experienced attorney to protect your best interests.
Why should I hire a Board Certified personal injury trial lawyer?
To become Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law, an attorney must have:
- Been licensed to practice law for at least five years;
- Devoted a required percentage of practice to personal injury trial law for at least three years;
- Handled a wide variety of personal injury trial law matters to demonstrate experience and involvement;
- Attended personal injury trial law continuing education seminars regularly to keep legal training up to date;
- Been evaluated by fellow lawyers and judges;
- Passed a day-long written examination.
The question you should be asking yourself is, "Why consider an attorney who is not Board Certified?"
