An accident lawyer is not hard to find, you can see dozens of television ads, billboards and internet ads everyday for lawyers. However, finding an accident lawyer who is qualified, competent, and experienced to negotiate a settlement or take your case to court, is not nearly as easy. You might have a list of accident lawyers to choose from, but who will best represent you, and how will you go about it choosing? At the very least you'll need to choose a lawyer who will be qualified to handle your case, and has experience in handling your type of case.
You can use these tips in order to find an experienced accident lawyer who will work hard to win your case. When you begin the process of selecting a competent accident lawyer, you need to consider their basic qualifications. Some of the information that you need to consider will be their experience handling your type of case, whether they provide personal service, whether they will personally handle your case or if your case will be handled by a team of legal secretaries.
Having learned about the firm they work with, you can study a bit deeper by checking the profile of the firm and lawyer online. One good source to check out a lawyer is www.lawyers.com, and another is www.avvo.com. Both of these national directories provide lawyer ratings, as well as reviews by clients and other lawyers. Personal references and referrals are also a great way to know that you'll receive a good quality of work from the lawyer you select.

If you have a friend or a family member who has been injured in an accident, be sure to ask them who represented them.
Questions to ask include:
- Were they in direct contact with a real lawyer throughout the process or did they just speak with paralegal secretaries at the law firm?
- How they were treated?
- How quickly the case was handled?
- If they found their settlement to be fair?.
- Did a lawyer sit down at their first meeting, or did they send out a contract runner?
You may want to make a list of lawyers in your area, then gather as much information to learn more about them than just their names.
