Choose a Lawyer Who Does Personal Injury Law Intensely – As the Largest Part of Their Practice
A great personal injury lawyer requires to fully understand personal injury law, which involves many specialized rules and practices. Attorneys who everything can be Jack of all trades but Masters of none. They do not try cases, and insurance companies lowball them accordingly. You risk the quality of your representation if you choose an attorney that does not specialize in personal injury law.
Select an Attorney Who Has a History of Taking Cases to Trial if Necessary
Many, if not most, attorneys who advertise they handle personal injury cases have never seen the inside of a courtroom. They take your case and try to pressure you to settle for a pittance. Insurance companies are very aggressive. If they know your attorney doesn’t go to trial, that he’s afraid of the courtroom, they will take advantage of this and make ridiculous offers or make little or no effort to settle your case.
They know your attorney is shooting blanks and that he will fold his hand and pressure you to fold too when he sees the insurer isn’t going to budge. If your attorney isn’t willing to put the case before a jury, the insurer knows it…..and it will hurt your chances of receiving maximum compensation.
Select a Personal Injury Lawyer With a Proven History of High Verdicts and Settlements
If you have a large case with serious injuries, it’s important to know that your attorney can deliver a large verdict or settlement. Ask your attorney how many million-dollar verdicts or settlements he has had. Is he a member of the Million Dollar Advocates?
The Million Dollar Advocates is a renowned organization of great personal injury lawyers who have settled or tried cases worth a million dollars or more. Not every case is worth a million dollars, but if you have that kind of case, make sure you have an attorney who can deliver the goods.

Find an Attorney Who Has Sufficient Resources to Take Your Case Seriously
When you hire an attorney, look around. Does he or she look like they are successful? Does their office look like they are doing well? Does the attorney have a line of credit or personal assets necessary to properly prepare your case? Serious personal injury cases are expensive to prepare. Many experts are necessary to prepare a case properly.
Often many doctors must have their depositions taken and must later appear in Court. Other experts such as economists, biomechanics, accident reconstructionists, vocational rehabilitation specialists, and life care planners must be hired. The expense in a single case can often exceed $100,000+ if properly prepared. Make sure your attorney has enough money to play with the big boys.

The Attorney Should Allow You to Talk to Past Clients If You Ask
If an attorney is any good, do you think he or she would have any problem with allowing you to talk to past clients they’ve represented?
A great personal injury lawyer worth his salt has satisfied clients he’s not ashamed to allow you to talk to. If an accident attorney in Dallas tells you he or she can’t allow you to speak to past clients, you should consider carefully that perhaps there’s a reason for that. Perhaps they haven’t done such a good job for those clients in the past.
Dan Moore has many happy client testimonials and many Google 5-star reviews.
Retain A Lawyer Experienced Trial in The Personal Injury Field
One way to consider someone a great personal injury lawyer is to ask them whether or not they are board-certified personal injury trial attorneys. The difference between experienced trial attorneys and regular lawyers is significant. It makes a difference to the judge and to the outcome of your case. Also, ask the lawyer for articles they’ve written in the personal injury field and presentations they’ve given to other personal injury lawyers.
Have they had a public service TV show where they’ve talked to the public about personal injury matters? If the attorney has never written, never given presentations to other lawyers, never hosted a TV show, consider how much he likely knows about his field.
