If you or a loved one have been injured, you need an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to fight your case. The right one will come to an agreement, negotiate a fair settlement, or file a lawsuit. They will do everything in their power to give you the best possible outcome. 

Finding a trustworthy attorney can become difficult especially with all the Maine personal injury lawyers available. Here are 6 things to look for when searching for the right attorney for your case.

1. Experience

It should go without saying that a good personal injury attorney needs to bring several years of experience and expertise to the table. When an attorney has an adequate amount of time in this industry, it will show inside and outside the courtroom. They will appear confident in cases like yours and will provide the best outcome possible.

2. Knowledge

Hand in hand with how many years of experience a lawyer has, you want to hire a personal injury lawyer who understands court proceedings in accordance with your specific case. They know the ins and outs of legal procedure and understand the paperwork needed for a seamless experience. Because of their years in this industry, they know how to negotiate and come to an agreement your content with.

3. Contingency Fee

It's important to remember that your attorney will take part in the amount compensated to you. This fee is called a contingency fee and you need to ask your lawyer about these costs prior to bringing them onto your case. Reliable attorneys often offer a no win no fee option.

4. Track Record

Every good attorney should have a proven track record on their website for your viewing. Take a look at how many personal injury cases they've taken and how many of them they have won. While you're conducting your research, view client reviews and testimonials as well. This will help you come to an educated decision if the law firm is right for you.

5. Free Initial Consultation

In order to know whether the attorney is right for your case, many will offer a free initial review of your case. This avoids you paying for their service before finding out that they don't have the adequate skills or knowledge to represent you, if there is a conflict of interest, or they advise that you don't have a case.

6. Comfortable and Welcoming Offices

It's important that you feel comfortable and welcomed in the offices of your attorneys. You will need to discuss personal information and possibly recount traumatic experiences to your lawyer, so it's crucial that you feel at ease around them and supported by them and their team.
