Attorney Farrah Martinez Shares Her Thoughts on the Type of Lawyer You Need If You've Been Involved in a Car Accident






By 
Farrah Martinez - Houston Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, many car injury victims often wonder what type of lawyer handles car accident cases. It is a very common question. If you were in a car wreck and the accident was not your fault, most likely you will want to seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer. The majority of personal injury lawyers offer free consultations to car accident victims; so, it will not cost you anything to have a lawyer review your case.

Here are three questions car accident victims ask about personal injury lawyers:

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a licensed attorney that represents victims that have been injured physically and possibly mentally by the negligent or reckless behavior of another individual, company, or government agency.

A personal injury lawyer also know as an injury lawyer or an accident lawyer, usually handles car accidents cases, boating accidents, motorcycle accidents, 18-wheeler accidents, slip and falls cases, products liability cases, construction accident cases and
accidents that occur while at work.

How do I find a good personal injury lawyer?

Ask for a referral. Before I hire anyone, I ask my friends, neighbors or my relatives if they have someone they can recommend. For example, my orthodontist was referred to me by a friend in law school. She has worked out great. I trust her and now I feel comfortable recommending her to other people.

Visit the State Bar of Texas at www.texasbar.com. It is better to be safe, rather than sorry, later down the road. There you can perform a search to make sure the person you plan to hire is licensed to practice law. Their attorney profile will also include the number of years the lawyer has been licensed and if the attorney is in good standing.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?

Generally, there is no out of pocket costs to the client. Personal injury lawyers usually agree to take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. In a nutshell, they do not get paid unless your case results in a favorable outcome. To learn more about contingency fee agreements see a blog post http://injuryandaccidentlawyer.blogspot.com/2015/03/no-gimmicks-if-i-win-your-case-then-i.html.
