The best way to find a traumatic brain injury attorney is through referrals from friends and family who have had first-hand experience with this kind of lawyer. If you don’t know anyone who can help you, asking your family lawyer is also a good option. Most attorneys have their own professional network and research tools to look for specific cases. Your family attorney could reach out to the brain injury attorneys on your behalf. You could also ask your doctor for recommendations for brain injury attorneys that have worked with his or her patients in the past, and have a strong record of client satisfaction.

It always helps to do your own homework before hiring an attorney. It is important that you find out what you can about the attorney, their practice and track record. One easy way to do this is to go to the attorney’s website. You can find out about their areas of practice, as well as look up news about recent cases or events. Pay attention to what the website has to say about their brain injury practice. If you like what they say, you can call them and request a free initial consultation. By meeting them in person, you can find out about how the attorney communicates with his or her clients, how attentive they are to a client’s needs and how they generally go about handling a case. You can then decide if they will be a good fit for you and your case.

You want a brain injury attorney who works well with you. Take the time to ask about their experiences with cases similar to yours, what approach they will be taking for your case, and how you will maintain contact with them during the legal process. You should be happy with their answers before you decide to hire him or her. It is a good idea to ask the lawyer if you could speak with their previous clients for additional feedback. This may give you an idea of what you can expect from that particular attorney.
