Does it matter what attorney I hire for my personal injury case?
A: Yes, it absolutely does. When you are looking to hire an attorney for your Sarasota auto accident case, you need to make sure you are hiring a law firm with experience dealing with personal injury law in Florida.
There are many different types of attorneys. For instance, you do not want to hire a divorce attorney if you are looking to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. Make sure your attorney has experience and successful results dealing with car accidents cases or motorcycle accident cases, truck crash cases or whatever area of law that best fits your case.
It is a wise idea to hire an attorney in the vicinity in which your accident took place. So, even if you know an attorney in a different state, you will be better off hiring a lawyer who is familiar with Florida law, Florida judges and other key people in the county your accident occurred in.
Additionally, ask your attorney if he is a trial attorney. Not all cases need to go to trial, as many are settled outside the courtroom; however, you will want the assurance that your attorney has tried cases and will be able to prepare your case for trial and take it to trial, if necessary.
