Answer

There are several factors to consider in finding the best lawyer to handle your North Carolina personal injury case. First, you should make sure the lawyer has extensive experience in personal injury law and has handled cases similar to yours. The area of personal injury law involves all sorts of cases, and not all personal injury lawyers have the same level of experience.

Second, you want a personal injury lawyer with exceptional legal skills. These skills include everything from conducting a thorough investigation to being a passionate advocate in the courtroom. The best personal injury lawyers are the ones who know how to obtain important evidence and how to present that evidence effectively to an insurance company, a defense attorney, a judge, or a jury.

Third, you want to hire a personal injury lawyer who is respected in the legal community.  You don’t want to hire an “ambulance chaser” who doesn’t have any credibility. Instead, you want to hire a lawyer who the other side knows will be fully prepared, thorough, and unrelenting in pursuing his or her client’s case.

Fourth, you want a lawyer you can talk to. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your lawyer.  The legal process can be lengthy and having a lawyer whom you can confide in is critical.

Fifth, the best personal injury lawyers will insist on being honest with you at all times. An honest lawyer will tell you about all of the developments – good and bad – as the case moves forward.  This way you will always know where your case stands, and there will be no surprises down the road.

Lastly, you want a personal injury lawyer who has a track record of obtaining excellent results for his or her clients. While no lawyer can guarantee specific results in a case, you want a lawyer who has a history of success. Keep in mind that in settling many cases, insurance companies and defense attorneys insist on confidentiality provisions, which prohibit the disclosure of the defendants’ names and the settlement amount. Therefore, top lawyers often cannot discuss their biggest successes or put them on their websites.

Over the years, I have been honored to be recognized as one of the top personal injury lawyers not only in North Carolina, but in the United States. In addition, I have also been recognized by the legal community as having the highest ethical standards. My firm offers free consultations, so if you are thinking of hiring a lawyer to handle your personal injury case, please call me (800-823-7216) or email me (john@mccabelawoffices.com), and I will be happy to discuss your case with you.
