How to Hire the Right Colorado Car Crash Attorney
When you are involved in a car crash in Colorado, it’s advisable to hire an attorney who can help fight for your rights. An experienced attorney knows how to file a claim and will ensure you are fairly compensated for the injuries you sustained from the crash. However, choosing the right Colorado car crash lawyer is not simply a matter of looking in the phone book or getting a referral. You need to research well to establish whether the law firm you want to work with has the experience and successful track record when it comes to settling car accident cases.
There are three important things to look for in any law firm:
I) LITIGATION EXPERIENCE
You can drastically improve the chances of winning a case by hiring an attorney withlitigation experience. Many Colorado car crash cases are settled out of court. Some attorneys will even settle for a lowball price to avoid trial. Such lawyers may not be right for you.
Look for an attorney that is not afraid of the courtroom. An attorney with litigation experience will put pressure on the insurance company and adjusters, which will result in a larger payout for you.
II) HISTORY & RECOVERY
Check the track record of the law firm you want to work with. Choose a law firm that has successfully achieved multiple six figure car accident settlements for its clients.
PERSONALITY & ACCESSIBILITY
Look for an attorney that will be pleasant to work with. Colorado car crash cases can be complicated and may take years to be resolved. Therefore, it’s advisable to hire a lawyer that will make your case their priority.
You should be able to get hold of the attorney at any time to have your questions answered or get an update of your case. Communication is a key part of the relationship you should have with the lawyer.
