When you are injured on vacation, it is a good idea to get ahold of a local attorney who can file your claim in the appropriate jurisdiction. Some law firms handle cases nationally. Others refer cases to local attorneys when they fall outside of the firm’s region. In either case, it is a good idea to get in touch with a local attorney to file your claim.
What to Look for in an Attorney
When you are looking for a personal injury lawyer, it is important that you select someone you feel confident in. Take time to interview your potential attorney, asking all of your questions, and gauging your comfort with his or her response. Remember, your personal injury case review should be free of both cost and obligation. You can meet with as many lawyers as needed to find one you feel comfortable with.
Look at your potential attorney’s verdicts and settlements. Have they had success with cases like yours? Can they provide you with reviews and testimony from verifiable clients? Knowing the experience others have had can be very beneficial when selecting a lawyer.
Look as well for endorsements from other attorneys, and any awards or recognitions, particularly those from reputable sources such as Martindale-Hubbell, Top Lawyers, Super Lawyers, the National Board of Trial Advocacy, and state and local bar associations. These will be indicative of an attorney’s skills, experience, abilities, and reputation. And again, you are never compelled to hire a lawyer just because you have had a consultation.
