What to look for in a personal injury lawyer
There is no shortage of personal injury lawyers in Greenville, North Carolina. Ultimately, choosing the right attorney comes down to personal choice, but here are a number of important questions to consider:
- How long as the attorney been in practice?
- How many personal injury cases has the law firm handled in the past?
- Does the firm represent injured parties (Plaintiffs), Defendants, or both?
- What is the attorney’s experience bringing cases to trial?
- What is the lawyer’s success rate in its personal injury cases that go to trial?
- Does the firm have a track record of successful settlements and case outcomes?
Ultimately, you’ll want to hire the lawyer that you feel confident will help get you the compensation you deserve. At Riddle & Brantley, we’ve helped injured North Carolinians recover millions in damages. Here are just a few of our recent case results:
