Choosing a Personal Injury Attorney: It’s Like Betting on a Boxer

Brubaker Injury Law

March 18, 2024

When it comes to personal injury cases, the stakes are high. Your well-being, financial recovery, and future depend on the outcome. So, how do you choose the right attorney to represent you? Let’s draw a comparison between selecting a personal injury lawyer and picking a fighter for a championship match.

The Boxing Ring

Individual Performance Matters

In boxing, it’s one-on-one combat. The success or failure of a boxer hinges on their individual skills, hunger for success, preparation, strategy, and determination. Similarly, when you’re dealing with a personal injury case, the attorney handling your matter fights your battle. Their legal prowess, experience, compassion, and dedication directly impact your chances of winning and by how much.

Some firms tout their large number of attorneys as an advantage for personal injury clients. This is a marketing tactic that does not translate into reality. Just as the fate of the championship fight rests on the shoulders of the individual boxer, the fate of your personal injury case rests on the shoulders of your individual attorney. Just as the boxer’s entourage does not enter the ring with the boxer, the law firm’s entourage of lawyers does not simultaneously enter the ring in your case.

The personal injury attorney at the large firm may be just starting out in their career. They might not have experience with cases like yours. Furthermore, the large marketing firm accumulates large caseloads, which may lead to your attorney facing hundreds of battles alongside your own, preventing the personal attention your case deserves.

Tip: Look for an attorney who has a proven track record of winning cases similar to yours. Ask about their results, negotiation skills, and ability to strategize effectively. Early on in the representation they should inform you regarding: (1) liability, (2) insurance coverage, (3) damages, and (4) the potential value of your case. If these elements are not being discussed with you early on in the representation, or if your case was dropped by another law firm without discussion of these four elements, it may be time to seek out a second look from a different attorney.

Agility and Adaptability

Boxers must adapt swiftly to their opponent’s moves. A successful attorney also needs agility—whether it’s adjusting their legal strategy mid-case, negotiating with insurance companies, or presenting compelling arguments.

Tip: Consider the firm’s size and structure. Who is the individual attorney fighting your battle? Do they understand your fight? Early on in the representation, your attorney should discuss: (1) liability, (2) insurance coverage, (3) damages, and (4) potential case value. If these elements are not being discussed with you early on in the representation, or if your case was dropped by another law firm without discussion of these four elements, it may be time to seek out a second look from a different attorney.

The Knockout Punch

In boxing, a well-timed knockout punch can change the entire fight. Similarly, a skilled attorney knows when to strike—whether it’s negotiating a settlement or taking the case to court. Your attorney’s ability to deliver that knockout blow matters.

Tip: Ask potential attorneys about their most significant victories. How did they secure favorable outcomes for their clients? Look for that winning punch. Early on in the representation your attorney should provide insights as to: (1) liability, (2) insurance coverage, (3) damages, and (4) potential case value. If these elements are not being discussed with you early on in the representation, or if your case was dropped by another law firm without discussion of these four elements, it may be time to seek out a second look from a different attorney.

Avoiding the Slip Through the Cracks

In personal injury law, you don’t want your case to slip through the cracks. When you choose a large firm, your case might become just another file on an overloaded desk.

The firm that has the most attorneys typically takes on the most cases. An attorney that works for an 800 attorney firm may be overburdened with hundreds of files, whereas an attorney that works for a smaller firm may only work on a select, high value group of important cases.

Opt for an attorney who treats your case as a priority, not a statistic. If you feel your case needs a second look don’t hesitate to reach out to our firm today.

Tip: Inquire about caseloads. How many cases does the attorney handle simultaneously? Will they give your case the attention it deserves? Have they won big cases? Have they advised as to: (1) liability, (2) insurance coverage, (3) damages, and (4) potential case value? If these elements are not being discussed with you early on in the representation, or if your case was dropped by another law firm without discussion of these four elements, it may be time to seek out a second look from a different attorney.

Conclusion

Remember, choosing a personal injury attorney is about finding someone who fights fiercely for your rights, understands the nuances of your case, and delivers results. So, when you’re in the ring of legal battles, choose your fighter wisely—it could be the difference between victory and defeat.
