Should You Choose A Local Personal Injury Lawyer?

You see the ads all of the time. Lawyers who are looking for your business and asking you to call them if you have been hurt in a car accident or any other personal injury instance. The problem is that some of these law firms are not in your area, or they even cater to regional or national clients. It's not all that common, but it brings up the question: if they have all of these commercials and get all of this business, are they really that good?

The alternative option would be to go with a local lawyer who might be down the street or someone you know from high school. These lawyers are closer geographically and they probably focus on less clients, but is that because they can't get enough clients?

Let's take a look at the reasons a local lawyer is your best choice when looking into a personal injury case.

They Focus on Your Case and Actually Case About It

Local lawyers usually have less clients because they want to focus on every single case. When you bring your case to a company that accepts every case you lose friction in the courtroom, because your lawyer probably hasn't done much research or preparation.

Go with a lawyer who is going to commit all of his time to your case instead of hundreds of other cases.

You Can Walk Into Their Office and Speak to the Actual Lawyer

A local lawyer has a local office. This means that you can walk into the office whenever you want. This is completely different than talking to a lawyer on the phone. You get their undivided attention and figure out the culture of the law firm.

You Can Ask Other People if They Like The Lawyer 

Sure you can always look up reviews online, but you never actually know where that input is coming from. With local lawyers you can ask people you trust like family and friends to help guide your decision on a lawyer. Ask everyone to tell you how they experienced that lawyer and if he or she has any upsides and downsides. Mark down the things that the lawyer is good at and understand the lawyer's history of cases. Experience means a lot with lawyers so make sure you cover your bases.

Now it's your turn to contribute to the community. Let us know in the comments section whether or not you have ever called those "big time" regional lawyers you often see on TV. Did you see any advantages or disadvantages to these lawyers. Are there any advantages to local lawyers that we missed? Let us know today!
