It is very difficult to choose a personal injury lawyer in Macon, GA. People are literally flooded with possible choices. There are lawyers on billboards, there are personal injury lawyers on the internet, there are personal injury lawyers on the back of the bus in front of you at the stop light. So, how do you choose which lawyer will represent you in your personal injury case? Here are some of the factors that you should consider:
THINGS YOU SHOULD IN EVALUATING POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS IN MACON, GA
- 1. Does the lawyer actually have an office in Macon? From time to time, you may want to meet with the lawyer in person. In a personal injury case, the lawyer should want to meet with you. There will be documents that will need to be executed, and sometimes it is easier just
- 2. Be conscientious and aware about your difficulty reaching a lawyer at the early stages of your communications with his/her office. Communication will likely never be better than it is in the beginning of the case. If you have trouble reaching a lawyer for an initial consultation, that should be a red flag for you as a prospective client.
- 3. Be leery of any personal injury lawyer that is not willing to take the time to actually meet with you regarding your case. You should not be meeting with a paralegal to discuss your case initially. You should be meeting with a lawyer that can give you actual information and advice about your claim.
- 4. Do not be hesitant to speak with a lawyer candidly about his/her experience. Ask them how many jury trials they have actually tried. Ask them when they last tried a jury trial. You do not want to be near the end of your case and realize that your lawyer has little or no jury trial experience. This is important and you do not get a second chance at obtaining justice and fair compensation for your injuries.
