Choosing the Right Maryland Personal Injury Attorney

By Dianne Freed on March 28, 2019

personal injury lawyer in MarylandAccidents happen. Whether you are motoring down I-95 rushing into the nearest grocery store to buy dinner, you can easily get injured. Car accidents, pedestrian accidents, slips and falls—you name it, people are injured every single day in the Maryland area. If you have suffered injuries in an accident caused by the negligence of another person, the first thing you should do is find an attorney to protect your legal rights.

There’s certainly no shortage of personal injury lawyers in Maryland. A basic Google search for “personal injury lawyer in Maryland” will return thousands of results. As a consumer, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. Here are some of the things you should do to pick the right lawyer for you.

Consider an Attorney’s Experience

When it comes to the practice of law, experience counts. There is much more obtaining compensation on behalf of an injured victim than passing the bar exam and knowing the law. An attorney’s negotiating skills, courtroom experience, and knowledge litigation tactics all can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. For this reason, you should carefully consider an attorney’s experience before retaining him or her.

Meet for a Case Evaluation

Most personal injury lawyers in Maryland offer free case evaluations. You can schedule a few. Consultations are an excellent opportunity to discuss your case and find out whether you have a valid legal claim. Remember, you are the one hiring the lawyer, so feel free to ask as many questions as you want. Here are some of the questions you should ask an attorney before you hire him or her:

  • Have you handled similar cases? How many? What were the results?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the case as you understand it?
  • How do you communicate? Do you prefer phone calls, texts, emails, or faxes? Will I communicate mostly with you or a member of your staff?
  • What is your fee?
  • How long do you think my case will take?

Don’t feel pressured to make a decision at the end of the consultation. It’s completely acceptable to tell an attorney that you need some time before you make a decision about who is going to represent you.

Trust Your Gut

After meeting for a case evaluation, take a few moments to reflect on the experience. Did you find the lawyer talked over your head or could you relate to what he or she was saying? Remember, you will be working closely with the attorney, so you must feel comfortable with your lawyer. Most people will feel that they “click” with at least one lawyer on your list, so you should go with his person. If you didn’t connect with any of them, you should look for another lawyer.
