When you are in an accident or suffer an injury that was someone else’s fault, everyone will tell you that you need to get a lawyer ASAP. While they’re correct that you need representation, it’s important to know that not all lawyers are created equal, and finding one that has experience and knowledge specific to your kind of case is key to getting the results you want and need. How do you know which category your case falls under though, and which attorney is right for you?

Before you begin choosing the attorney, you must know whether or not your case is classified as a “personal injury” case as this is the most generic category and will guide your next steps in choosing representation. Personal injuries can be the result of (but are not limited to):

  • car accidents
  • motorcycle accidents
  • railroad accidents
  • truck accidents
  • drunk driving accidents
  • defective products
  • medical malpractice
  • negligence and/or unsafe conditions
  • dog attacks
  • slip and fall accidents
  • nursing home abuse/elder abuse
  • construction accidents

Obviously, there are many cases that constitute using a personal injury attorney, so once you have narrowed down that this is the type of attorney you need, you’ll need to further investigate practices who specialize in your specific case’s category. For Winter Haven victims, verifying that your chosen attorney is in good standing with the Florida Bar is key. Look for practices that have favorable recognition in your area, such as awards, community outreach, etc. These are all good indicators that you’re choosing an attorney who will represent you well and get the results you need and deserve.
