Selecting the Right Construction Accident Lawyer
A license to practice law permits a lawyer to represent clients in all types of legal matters. But, just being licensed to handle a specific type of case is not the same thing as being knowledgeable, experienced or successful at it. This is especially true in the field of personal injury litigation and specifically in litigating construction accident cases in New York.
There are no courses in law school on litigating construction accidents in New York, no structured training programs to gain valuable experience and no professional organizations to certify a lawyer as a specialist in the field. And the task of hiring just the right lawyer for a construction accident case is made even more difficult by the lack of effective controls over lawyer advertising. Just look on the Internet, in the phone book or on TV and you will find dozens of lawyers from all over the State who want your case.
How should someone go about the task of choosing the right lawyer? Should it be the lawyer with the biggest telephone book ad or the one with the most television commercials or the one with the catchy jingle? Put this way, it sounds quite naive to select the lawyer you will trust to rebuild your life after a devastating personal injury on this basis. Yet, studies have show that aggressive marketing techniques do produce a steady flow of new clients. Why? It is often because we don’t know what or where to look for the information needed to intelligently choose the right lawyer for the job.
