How do you find the best personal injury lawyer to represent you or your loved ones after an accident? Most of the best personal injury attorneys do little or no advertising. You will not see their names or faces on TV, billboards, buses or in the yellow pages.
Their cases come largely as referrals from other attorneys, from doctors and from current and former clients. These attorneys earn these referrals with their hard work and past successes. They have earned reputations for doing good work and getting good results. But how do you find one?
If you look the yellow pages, you will find that many of the biggest ads are from personal injury law firms who believe that their large ads will bring them large numbers of injury cases. They rely on getting lots of cases indeed, they need lots of cases just to pay for the expensive ads on TV, radio, in the yellow pages, etc. Many attorneys buy the largest ads to make their practices appear better than they really are.
In fact, a look in the yellow pages reveals that most lawyers claim to practice personal injury law. In truth, many of these lawyers have handled very few personal injury cases, and some have never even handled one. Why is this? Because there is a mistaken perception amongst these advertising lawyers that personal injury cases are easy.
In reality, as experienced personal injury attorneys know, personal injury cases are not easy. The reason good personal injury lawyers receive referrals from other lawyers is because when push comes to shove, and it is time to fight, most lawyers donít know where ñ or how ñ to begin the fight.
