Selecting the Best Attorney for Personal Injury Claims

At The Cochran Firm Atlanta, we know our city has hundreds of attorneys who can assist you in your legal matters. Depending on your needs, it's important to select the right attorney to help you navigate Georgia law and come to a fair and speedy resolution to your issue. If someone in your family has been a victim of truck accident wrongful death in Atlanta, you need to seek counsel from a truck accident lawyer who is familiar with the Atlanta judiciary system.

If you're grieving the loss of a loved one and are unfamiliar with legal situations, you might feel overwhelmed with the thought of finding a personal injury attorney to discuss your options in pursuing a wrongful death settlement or lawsuit. Here are a few suggestions to help you find a suitable lawyer:

  • Seek out an attorney that you are comfortable with both personally and professionally. You need to be able to talk to your lawyer openly and have faith in his expertise.
  • Look for an attorney who has experience and has successfully litigated numerous wrongful death cases in Atlanta. A local attorney will be familiar with the intricacies of Atlanta's court system.
  • Get recommendations from trusted friends and colleagues, look on the internet and contact the State Bar of Georgia for names of skilled wrongful death and personal injury attorneys.
  • Once you have a "short list" of attorneys to choose from, contact each of them for a brief interview to discuss their experience, their fee schedule, and your case.
  • Look up information about the attorneys on your list through the State Bar of Georgia website.

Prior to your first meeting with each personal injury attorney, ask whether there is a charge for the meeting or if they offer a complimentary consultation. During your first meeting talk about these topics:

  • Can we develop a preliminary outline of how to pursue my case?
  • How long does it generally take to handle a wrongful death case?
  • Do you carry malpractice insurance?
  • What are my responsibilities in this case?
  • How will we communicate with each other during the case development?
  • When and how are you to be paid?
  • Can you provide a few client references?
