Written By Skaggs Chiropractic on June 10, 2020

rsz autoaccident2Researching and vetting auto injury attorneys is the last thing anyone wants to have to do after being injured in a motor vehicle accident. 

Unfortunately, roughly some 50 thousand people are inured each year in accidents in Missouri. If you are one of them, you should know how important it is to take action immediately and choose the right attorney.

Many injuries produce immediate noticeable symptoms and can create long term consequences that can affect your health in the future. Fortunately, Dr. Skaggs in Joplin can help you begin a proactive treatment and steer you in the right direction of a qualified attorney. 

How to Find a Trustworthy Auto Injury Attorney

Unfortunately, too many lawyers out there are just looking to take your cash. They won’t be honest if they doubt your case will succeed because they still get paid regardless.  

Check Their Experience 

Experienced attorneys – in the correct jurisdiction – understand all the local laws and have connections. They know all the right steps to take to earn you the highest payout as well.

Ask Your Friends and Family

Did someone in your family have a positive experience with their attorney? Request a consultation with their lawyer. It’s also smart to read reviews (including bad ones) for any attorney you plan to hire.

Request Clear Costs and Fees

Attorney fees can add up quickly. Some less-than-reputable lawyers might not disclose the full costs until you’ve already agreed to hire them.

Get a Second Opinion 

Most law firms offer free consultations so you can figure out if your case is worth pursuing without any risk. Don’t let them talk you into signing anything on the first visit. Go for a few free consultations to see which attorney is the best fit.
