When you’ve been injured, finding an attorney to represent you can be a daunting task, especially in a city like Atlanta. Here’s what you should look for.
Look for an attorney with jury trial experience
Albert Einstein once said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” Never underestimate the importance of finding an attorney with significant trial experience. At Wood, Craig & Avery, our attorneys have experience with over 400 jury trials. In an environment where many cases settle before trial, courtroom experience can make all the difference.
Ask to see what results they have achieved for their clients
The best attorneys don’t have to say anything: their results speak for them. Don’t just look at the volume of cases, look at the quality of the outcomes. Remember, your case is unique and whatever result is achieved will affect you for many years. It’s important to choose an attorney that is focused on delivering the best possible outcome for you.
At Wood, Craig & Avery, our recent results include a $4.8 million and $3.75 million recovery. We encourage you to review some of our recent case results.
See whether they offer anything unique
If you are trying to find an attorney in Atlanta for your personal injury case, you will have plenty of options. A good way to narrow down your options is to look for an attorney that has a distinct offering, such as a unique experience that gives some advantage. For instance, the team at Wood, Craig & Avery have over 50 years of experience defending insurance companies. That gives them insider knowledge into the world of insurance companies and their strategies.
Additionally, while many personal injury attorneys will try to quickly settle their cases, our team prepares for trial. We go the extra mile and work for the outcome that our clients deserve, not just the outcome that is easy.
Sit down and speak with the attorney in person
Remember, you could potentially be working with this person for an extended period. Sometimes, sitting down with them will quickly reveal whether your case will get the personal attention it needs. At Wood, Craig & Avery, we offer a free consultation to all potential clients. There’s no obligation, and we will never pressure you. Call us at (404) 800-1837 to schedule a time to review your situation and go over your options.
