4 Things to Look For When Choosing an Accident Lawyer

How to Choose the Right Car Accident Lawyer

To say that every attorney is equal in terms of education and adequacy would be false. Different states and counties have different laws, different branches of the law have different stipulations—attorneys are built for a specific field of law, and most will practice that for their entire career. What traits should you look for when hiring a car accident attorney in Houston?

  1. Immense Attention to Detail

    One aspect of law—personal injury—doesn’t hinge on local laws all too much. Different states have different laws when it comes to automobiles and how insurance deems an accident, which can sometimes play into a case. In a car accident, every little detail is a major pivotal point. Personal injury comes with trauma, vehicle damage, and sometimes, there is more than one passenger in the vehicle. There’s a lot to consider.

  2. Analytical Skills

    A great attorney isn’t going to just say, “This is 100% in your court,” if they don’t mean it. A quality attorney will be completely transparent with you about their expectations, and their predictions. It’s more than just the skills to analyze a situation properly—it’s personal judgment, perceiving the case in a play-by-play show in their mind, and deliberating from that. Analytical skills are an absolute must, and you can know from the first conversation just how competent and ready-to-go your attorney is.

  3. Creativity

    Logical problem solving is a key component, but there’s a problem with using solely logic to solve an issue: you hit the wall early. A top-notch attorney will also have the creative skills behind them to find alternative solutions around an issue, while presenting your case and representing you in the best possible way.

  4. Possessing Wit

    In a conversation, when someone is caught looking like a deer in the headlights, they have immediately admitted weakness both intellectually, and in terms of the solidity of their case. An attorney is always supposed to have an immediate response to every potential question that is hurled their way, because they’ve spent a lot of time in their own heads playing out these exact situations before.
    When an attorney looks at your case, they’re not just reading a fact sheet or a statement from the police after the car accident. They’re playing over every single detail, how it can be used in your favor, and how, if at all, it can be used against you. An excellent attorney has already thought of the results of the case, and every fork in the road along the way to get you to where you need to be: receiving compensation for your injury.
