How to Choose an Accident Attorney

How to Spot a Top Queens Car Accident Attorney

One of the first things to consider is whether the attorney specializes in handling accident cases and how long they have been in this area of practice. Beware of attorneys that claim to handle too wide a variety of cases! Once you’ve chosen a Queens or Brooklyn personal injury attorney that meets those basic qualifications, consider whether they listen carefully to your concerns and answer your questions fully. Don’t feel like you have to sign a retainer just because the attorney spent some time with you. If you feel like you’re not being treated with appropriate respect, the attorney is not being straightforward or something is not clear about the fee arrangement, you should not sign the retainer and seek a second consultation.

Avoid Scams and Mills

The worst way to choose an attorney is to accept cards from strangers pretending to be good Samaritans that lure you into physical therapy mills that work for lawyers. These unethical and illegal schemes defraud insurance companies by billing for services that are never performed, tests that are never taken and sometimes have unlicensed and unqualified health care providers. Getting recommendations from friends and relatives is a reasonable way to find an attorney, but only if they actually had cases with the attorney they are recommending and obtained good results. If you can’t get a solid personal referral, the next best way to find a top Queens accident attorney is to search on Google, see how long they’ve been in business and read their reviews.
