Statistically, it is 27 times more likely that you will be injured in a car accident than it is for that accident to actually result in a fatality.
This number is increasing every year. These injuries result in disabilities, medical expenses, loss of income and other costs for millions of Australians every year.
However, there is legal recourse that you can take in order to claim the different types of costs associated with a personal injury sustained from a car crash.
If you have been in a car accident, it is highly recommended to contact a personal injury lawyer to find out what your different legal options are.
However, how do you find a reputable car accident lawyer that is an expert in personal injury law in Brisbane?
The Queensland Law Society provides a search tool to help you find a qualified Solicitor in a specific field of the law located near you.
They also provide you with the means to compare experience, fees, as well as the services offered by different Solicitors.
One of the greatest benefits is that they provide a referral list.
This allows you to access a list of Solicitors that come highly recommended by their previous clients who were happy with the services that they received.
The Australian Lawyers Directory provides names and contact information for Solicitors and Barristers across the country.
The database provides different search methods to give you a list of lawyers in your area.
You can either search by a field of specialization such as “personal injury law” or you can search according to the legal issue that you have such as “motor vehicle compensation”.
Alternatively, you can search for a lawyer in your area and then find the one that is experienced in personal injury law.
The site also offers further information for featured lawyers.
However, a little additional research is recommended as the directory does not provide a rating system or means of establishing the reputation, experience, and expertise of a specific lawyer.
One of the oldest and most successful means of finding a reputable lawyer is through word of mouth.
So ask friends and family members for the contact details of a lawyer that they have used for a personal injury case and if they were happy with the service that they received.
Alternatively, use social media to search for a lawyer and be sure to read all the comments, complaints and compliments that each lawyer received.
Social media is one of the best tools that you can use to find a solicitor who practices in the field of personal injury law near you, while establishing whether they have a good reputation.
If you know a lawyer who specialises in a different field of the law, you may want to ask them for a referral or a recommendation for a personal injury Solicitor.
Always keep in mind the qualifications, experience and expertise of a lawyer when using any of these 3 methods to find a reputable car accident and personal injury lawyer in your area.
