Why Work with Us on Your Del Paso Heights Personal Injury Case?

There are many personal injury law firms in Sacramento, making it difficult to determine the best firm for you. When searching for a personal injury lawyer, remember to choose one with substantial experience practicing personal injury law, reviews from past clients on objective websites like Avvo and Yelp, and previous verdicts and settlements listed on their website. The Law Offices of Edward Smith was founded in 1982.

Although client testimonials are one way a firm can showcase its clients' experiences, they are not the only way to do this. Outside websites such as these provide unbiased, sometimes anonymous, reviews of law firms.

A firm's list of previous verdicts and settlements demonstrates two things: the types of cases with which the firm has the experience and the amounts for which these cases were settled. Each case is listed with a few details, such as the type of injury the victim suffered and relevant factors to the accident, to help you determine the firm's experience and whether your case is the type of case the firm handles.

How to Select a Personal Injury Lawyer

The following video can help you prepare to speak with prospective personal injury lawyers.

To determine the right lawyer for you, keep the following in mind:

  • Choose a lawyer who specializes in personal injury cases rather than a jack-of-all-trades who merely dabbles in personal injury law;
  • Your lawyer should feel comfortable discussing their successful and unsuccessful previous cases. Rather than making excuses for unsuccessful cases in the past, they should be able to tell you what went wrong;
  • Work with a lawyer who has trial experience. Although many personal injury cases are resolved outside of court, some do require the claimant to bring the case before a judge and jury; and
  • You should always feel comfortable speaking with your lawyer about your case.

Choose an experienced Del Paso personal injury lawyer based on the abovementioned factors.
