Considerations When Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

Colorado's top workers' comp, auto accident and personal injury attorney recommends what factors you should consider before hiring an attorney to represent you

Accidents happen every single day.  Some people may become slightly injured, while others suffer from the impact of a serious accident for the rest of their lives. Should such an unfortunate event happen to you or a loved one, you may find yourself in need of a professional and experienced personal injury attorney.

When you need select a lawyer to represent you, the task is not as easy as finding a plumber or repairman. There are many issues to consider and questions to ask before deciding upon the individual who could ultimately help you get the proper compensation that you deserve.

The 5 R's of Hiring an Attorney

First and foremost, you should look for an attorney who specializes in your case type. If you are seeking an attorney in Colorado for instance, consider personal injury attorney R. Mack Babcock who represents people in Denver, Boulder, Aurora, Broomfield, Louisville, Lafayette, Golden, Thornton, Westminster and a throughout Colorado.

Other consideration to keep in mind when choosing legal representation include:

  • Referrals.  Speak with friends and family members to see which attorney they used and how happy they were with the results.

  • Reputation.  Does the attorney you are considering have a positive reputation in your community?  Ask to view client testimonials. If an attorney does not seem interested in sharing testimonials, it may be a red flag. Also check legal directories like Nolo to look at a profile and description for each law firm that you may be considering.

  • Recognition. Does the attorney you are considering have any articles written about him or her to show their accomplishments or reputation? For example, Mack Babcock was recognized nationally by the Workers' Injury Law and Advocacy Group as one of the top workers' compensation attorneys in the country. Also, Denver's local magazine, 5280, recognized The Babcock Law Firm as one of the best practices in Denver.

  • Rate. Ask what their fee schedule is like.  Do they offer a free consultation?  Do they make you pay even when they don't win the case?  Try to get as much financial details upfront as possible.

  • Resources.  Some personal injury cases take a lot of money to research, litigate and win. Make sure your attorney has the funds to handle a serious, complicated and expensive personal injury case.

Suffering a serious injury or unexpected death of a family member is a tragic situation that can be very difficult to face.  With an experienced personal injury attorney, you don't have to face the legal hurdles alone.  If you live in Denver or elsewhere in Colorado, contact The Babcock Law Firm for a no-cost, no obligation case screening and free consultation.

"In September 2016 I contacted the Babcock Law Firm to seek help with my workers compensation (injury) case... I was then quickly scheduled the next day to meet with Stephanie Tucker (associate attorney) to go over all my case details. From day one, I really felt I was dealt with the upmost understanding and compassion. It didn't take me very long to know that I was making the right choice. Now, three and a half months later, and with the firm's awesome help, the opposing insurance company has finally settled with us. The pay-out amount was exactly what we had hoped for! A very special thank you goes out to everyone at The Babcock Law Firm! Sincerely, Garrett T. (Denver, CO.) "
