Usually, people with money get the best of everything. It’s ironic, but people with little or no money are often in a better position when looking for an accident lawyer! Why is that you ask?
People in lower income brackets are more likely to call an accident lawyer advertising on TV. This is because they often do not already know a lawyer and are more likely to call a lawyer who is advertising for accident cases.
Why should you hire a personal injury lawyer from advertising? Attorneys who advertise for accident cases usually practice only in personal injury. They may not know how to do a real estate closing, but they are highly experienced with accident cases.
While, not all lawyers who are highly experienced in personal injury advertise, advertising to accident victims forces a lawyer to become highly experienced with accident cases.
Because advertising to accident victims produces a much larger volume of accident cases than an attorney could possibly get from word-of-mouth referrals, lawyers who advertise for personal injury have to devote the vast majority of their time, if not all of their time, to personal injury. The field of personal injury involves the representation of people who have been hurt in any kind of accident. This allows the advertising lawyer to develop a high degree of experience with accident cases.
A lawyer who practices in many different fields would find it very difficult, if not impossible, to advertise on TV for any particular field of law because of the volume of cases that advertising produces.
When I first started working, I initially started at a law firm that handles all kinds of cases, including personal injury, and they did not advertise. I learned a little about many different fields of law. Later, I was hired by a law firm that did only personal injury. They had a large volume of accident cases obtained from advertising. That’s where I really learned about representing personal injury clients. When I started my own practice, I limited my practice to personal injury because there’s just too much to know.
While many lawyers belong to their state bar association, lawyers who practice exclusively in the field of personal injury often also belong to the state and national bar associations for personal injury lawyers which provide a myriad of ways for personal injury lawyers to learn and sharpen their skills. Additionally, personal injury lawyers usually take continuing education courses in the field of personal injury and socialize with other personal injury lawyers.
This allows a personal injury lawyer to stay on top of continually changing laws and court decisions affecting personal injury cases and provides a network of personal injury lawyers to discuss complicated issues encountered in personal injury cases.
In summary, it is my strong belief that a person hurt in an accident will find an experienced accident lawyer through advertising.
