How to Choose a Good Personal Injury Attorney in Miami

Personal injuries can have a devastating impact on your health, finances, and emotional well-being. Medical bills, diminished quality of life, and the stress of managing your injury can be overwhelming—as can seeking the best personal injury attorney for your case. Finding the right legal representation can make the difference between winning and losing the most important case of your life, which is why it’s so important to understand what to look for in a good personal injury attorney. 

“It’s essential to find a lawyer who actively listens to your problems—and is unrelenting in pursuing your goals as a client,” says Marvin Ross Friedman, a leading attorney at Friedman & Friedman. “Along with a winning track record, the best quality an attorney can bring is total commitment to the client, their family, and their cause.”

If you were injured in Miami and need top-quality legal representation for your case, then call us now. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can provide a free, no-obligation consultation regarding your case—and ensure you receive the justice you deserve. Until then, here’s a simple guide on how to find the best personal injury attorneys in Miami. 

Do Your Research

You want to find an attorney that you trust.

“Looking at the lawyer’s track record is paramount,” says Mr. Friedman. Be sure to research the previous personal injury cases they’ve taken on—not just the ones that are settled, but also those that are taken to a court of law. This is one of the best ways to judge how effectively they’ll manage your own case.” 

It’s important to note that every personal injury case—and client-attorney relationship—is unique. The lawyers on your list may have an excellent history of success with personal injury cases, but how committed will they be to helping you achieve your goals as a client? 

Once you have a list of potential attorneys with the experience to support your case, dig a little deeper to get a sense of their values. For example, at Friedman & Friedman, our first priority is meeting your unique needs as a client. That means taking the time to listen to your problems, understand the details of your case, and give legal advice tailored to your goals.

Contact Potential Attorneys

Once you’ve narrowed down your list, it’s time to contact your top choices. While you should reference back to your research for these conversations, this step in your search for the right attorney falls primarily on your own personal judgement. Before dialing up their phone or heading into an office, it’s important to have a list of questions ready to ask the attorney during your initial consultation. This will help you further narrow down your top choices.

Here’s a list of some questions that you should have prepared, along with anything else that is specific to your own case:

  • What is the statute of limitations for my personal injury case?
  • Do you specialize in cases like my own?
  • What is your track record for cases like mine? What sort of compensation have your clients received?
  • What does the time frame for a case like this look like?
  • Will there be multiple attorneys working on my case? If so, who are they?
  • What is your fee structure? 
  • How often do you go to trial on similar cases? 
  • How will you keep me up to date on the progress and status of my case?
  • Will you listen to my concerns and wishes on how I would like to proceed throughout? 
  • Does your firm have insurance? 

The questions above should help you gather much of the information you’ll need to make a well-informed decision. But remember, there are never too many questions to ask—and having thorough answers will help you choose the right attorney for your personal injury case.
