Who Should You Call After a Car Accident?

Posted on

If you’ve been injured, you should seek medical attention right away. Your next step should be to call a Rock Hill car accident lawyer. An attorney fights for fair compensation. Car accident victims need money to put their lives back together, and that money shouldn’t come from their own pockets. Usually, these services cost nothing upfront.

You don’t just call any doctor when you feel seriously ill – you do your research. You should do the same when choosing a car accident lawyer. You should select a lawyer based on some of the qualities listed below. But do so quickly, because you have a limited amount of time to take legal action in these situations.

Experience

Overall experience is important, and it helps to choose a lawyer who has a proven track record of experience for the areas you need assistance in.

Many attorneys, including many personal injury attorneys, practice law for years – but this does not necessarily mean they are best suited to handle your case. Ideally, you want to work with a lawyer who has trial experience simply because insurance companies often try to settle cases cheaply. The insurance company will be more wary of trying to work around a lawyer with extensive trial experience.

Accessibility

This quality, which is almost as important as experience, has two dimensions. 

Serious injury victims often have a hard time getting around, especially on a bad day. For that reason, it is usually a bad idea to work with a lawyer whose office is too far away. The best attorney-client relationships are partnerships, and partners need to spend lots of time together.

Your lawyer should also be personally accessible. This is an important factor to consider, and it is the reason why it helps to look for a local lawyer. 

Selecting the right car crash attorney is a very important decision. For a free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Rock Hill, contact Elrod Pope Law Firm. We routinely handle matters in York County and nearby jurisdictions.
