What do personal injury attorneys look for in a case?


While a personal injury attorney seeks to help his or her clients get fair compensation, they also have to use good judgement about taking on a case; in other words, is taking on the case worth the time and effort, and does it have a good chance of having a successful outcome?

When evaluating your case to determine whether you have a legitimate claim, the attorney will consider several factors:

  • 1. Who is liable?
  • 2. Material facts of your case
  • 3. How severe the injury is
  • 4. Value of the case
  • 5. Who else have you talked to?

What types of cases do personal injury lawyers take on?

There are many types of personal injury cases, the most common being:

  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Wrongful death
  • Premises liability
  • Dog bites
  • Defective products

When shopping for a personal injury attorney, you need to realize that your claim is based upon the notion that you have been harmed personally, and that your injury was the result of negligence on the part of another.

Most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations at which time the attorney will ask you a lot of questions about the incident — how it happened, the injuries that you incurred, any treatment that you’ve had, and your prognosis for the future. During this initial consultation, you need to speak openly and honestly about your situation so that the attorney can make an objective evaluation when it comes to whether or not you have a valid legal claim. 

If you have provided inaccurate details of your accident or have not been truthful about the extent of your injuries, or have never received medical treatment, if you are partially liable for your injuries, or if the statute of limitations has passed for filing your claim, you may discover that nobody wants to take your case.

It’s important that you try to find an attorney who will listen to the details of your case and provide you with a fair and honest evaluation as well as take the time to answer your questions.
