5 Things to Look For in a Personal Injury Attorney

Tuesday, Mar. 7th 2023

Choosing which personal injury attorney you should hire after an accident in your area can be difficult. If you’re fortunate enough to have never dealt with this process, you might not know what you’re looking for in an attorney. Northland Injury Law wants to offer you these 5 tips to help you find the right personal injury attorney for you in Kansas City.

1. Experience
The primary reason you need a personal injury attorney is to navigate the legal process for you. This means a lawyer has in-depth knowledge of your type of injury and the circumstances around your accident. In addition, a lawyer with experience will know which questions they need to ask you to seek the highest compensation you can receive.

2. Local Area Expertise
Along with knowledge of your type of case, possessing knowledge of the courts in your area is extremely important. Having a working relationship with and understanding the lawyers and judges in the area can lead to your lawyer being able to handle the case much more smoother than otherwise. The personal injury attorney team at Northland Injury Law has over 50 years of experience working in the Kansas City area; they have the experience and relationships to handle your case with confidence.

3. Pricing
Cost is always going to be a factor in hiring legal representation. That’s why the cost will always be one of the first details you look for. At Northland Injury Law, you pay no legal fees upfront, and instead, we collect fees only if and when your compensation is secured. If we are unsuccessful in getting compensation for you, you will pay no fees.

4. Track Record
Knowing the results your attorney has won and what people say about working with them can tell you a lot. To understand your lawyer’s reputation with past clients, you should look at reviews of any personal injury attorney you’re considering. This will help you know what to expect in working with them and can help you find the option that works best for you.

5. Transparency
With all the stress already involved in suffering from an injury, feeling like you need to get all the information about your case you need is a nightmare scenario. You want a lawyer who is open about how your case is proceeding. How a lawyer communicates with you is crucial to letting you handle the legal side of your injury with the least stress possible.

I found Northland Injury Law to be very professional and honest! They kept me up to date on my case. I would highly recommend the whole firm for all your legal needs!!” – Michael T.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.
