Defense attorneys know we are fully prepared to take cases to trial and follow through on appeal, when necessary.

How Do I Find the Best Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney Near Me?

The “best” personal injury attorney isn’t just about the one who will win your case. It’s about finding an advocate who truly believes in your cause. You will be working closely with your attorney for the next few weeks, months, or even years. You need to find legal representation you feel good about hiring. You can utilize interviews during your complimentary consultation to find out if an attorney is the right fit. The best lawyer for you will have the following qualifications:

#1. Experience in Your Practice Area.
You absolutely must partner with a lawyer who has real, hands-on experience with the subject matter at hand. This means if you suffered injuries at a construction site, find a lawyer who covers this practice area. Real experience in and out of the courtroom can make all the difference on your case. You can see a comprehensive list of the practice areas that we handle.

#2. Track Record of Successful Cases.
It doesn’t hurt for a personal injury lawyer to have an established history of positive case outcomes and impressive results. This shows you that the lawyer has what it takes to win cases for his or her clients. Find a lawyer who isn’t afraid to take a case to trial if that’s what it takes for maximum compensation.

#3. Dedication to Clients.
Last and arguably most important, find an attorney who truly cares about the clients. Read client testimonials and firm reviews to see what past clients have to say about the lawyer. Search for a commitment to excellence, strong relationships with clients, and a lawyer with a passion for justice.

#4. The Right Match.
Above all, go with your gut. It’s important to make sure that you are on the same page with your attorney about your case, in order to avoid any possible miscommunication. Before signing on to work with an attorney, meet with him or her in person. Discuss the details of your case and see how the lawyer makes you feel. The best personal injury attorney for you will help you feel heard, comforted, safe, and optimistic about the future.

How Long Will it Take to Get a Settlement?

You might know that a settlement is faster than taking an Atlanta personal injury case to trial, but do you know how long it will take to settle? The answer depends on your specific goals for the case, as well as how soon an insurance company accepts your claim. If an insurance company accepts your claim right away and offers a settlement that’s satisfactory to you, you could settle your case within just a few weeks. A fast settlement, however, might not be in your best interests.

There are a few different reasons that taking your time might be a better choice. For one, you might not have reached your point of maximum medical improvement (MMI) yet. If you can afford to wait, it is always wise to do so if you’re still in recovery. Otherwise, you might settle for an amount that does not reflect the full extent of your injuries. Saying no to the first settlement offer is also a good idea if your goal is to receive as much as possible, not to settle ASAP. If maximum compensation is your end goal, keep negotiating.

How Do I Deal with the Negligent Party’s Insurance Company?

When dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance company, know that the agents and adjusters you speak with are not on your side. They work for the company, not for you. Their goal is to convince you to settle for as little as possible. The best way you can deal with this is to keep your answers short until you’ve spoken to an attorney. Do not let the insurance company intimidate you into agreeing to a “final offer” or recording a statement. Instead, politely decline and contact our Atlanta personal injury attorneys at Butler Wooten & Peak LLP. We’ll help you with what to say and what not to say from there.
