Fortunately, with a little research utilizing the many websites out there, you may find the exact information you need when deciding on the best serious injury lawyer for your specific needs. So don’t let the fear of research hold you back from your ultimate goal, Getting the most compensation for your lost time and suffering.
Good ol’ Google
Google is a great tool to utilize during your search for a serious injury lawyer. Google has been around for decades and is pretty much a one stop shop for everything “internet”! With search results within milliseconds, you can find almost any and all the information you need during your personal injury journey.
Something to remember about search engine giants like Google, is that there are “sponsored results”, which is a stack of links at the top of the page. These results are identified by the marker “AD” being at the beginning of the link. As general rule of thumb, it’s smart to scroll down to where the links no longer have the “AD” marker. Companies pay to push their website to the top of the list, and typically you can find more organic answers from companies who do not use the “sponsored ad” feature which can be found towards the end of the results page.
Google also has a great feature within Google Maps which allow users to post reviews of services and products. You can search your tentative serious injury lawyer, and chances are… You’ll have a good amount of reviews from previous clients! It is also important to take all reviews from anonymous users with a grain of salt, as all experiences vary.
Legal Publications and Websites
Newsletters and tangible magazines are often a thing of the past, but luckily, there are many websites with the same information available digitally. There are national websites such as NOLO and Lawyers.com and even some online publications specific to your geological location! Many of these will include information on serious injury attorneys near you.
It’s no surprise, the powerhouse that is social media is a great way to get informative insight on a serious injury lawyer. There are many groups you can find, often formed within your own neighborhood, that have discussions and post about things going on in your “neck of the woods”. In larger towns and counties, there may even be a group geared towards all things legal right in your own town.
You can also post on your wall or stories to your account, and even use the “poll” feature to ask your own following their thoughts on a potential serious injury lawyer in your area.
Friends and Family
Odds are, within your immediate circle, some of your friends and family may have found themselves in your shoes at some point in their life. These are the people who know you the best, and you can almost guarantee they will be offering the most sound and honest advice you can find. Your best interest is typically at the core of these relationships, so you don’t have to worry too much about getting a misleading review on the serious injury lawyer you may be considering.
Even co-workers can be a great source of honest reviews on a serious injury lawyer. Much like friends and family, typically your colleagues will also have the best intentions while offering advice. Let’s face it, injury is part of life… More than not, someone close to you have probably experienced exactly what you’re going through.
