5 Tips to Hiring the Best Lawyer After a Car Accident

No one expects to be involved in a car or truck accident. Yet, that is exactly what happens to some 5.5 million unfortunate motorists and passengers across the nation each year. There is a lot of uncertainty involved with moving forward after the devastation caused by a motor vehicle accident. The ability of your attorney should not be among your concerns. Keep these 5 tips in mind to help ensure that you are hiring the best lawyer to handle your personal injury claim in West Virginia. Consider the following:

1. Knowledge and Skill Level

It is simply not possible to secure the best possible results for a personal injury client without a sufficient level of legal knowledge and skill.

The attorneys at Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law excel in this area. Since 1952, we have been entrusted to handle many West Virginia residents’ most important claims resulting from truck crashes, automobile accidents, and other serious incidents resulting in personal injuries. We possess a wide breadth of legal knowledge and unparalleled skill to provide effective representation of your case.

2. Practice Focus

Just as you would not, ideally, hire a carpenter to embroider your drapes, you would not want to hire an attorney whose practice focuses on an irrelevant area of law. Yet, the ideal application of personal injury law in cases involving car and truck accidents often requires a multidisciplinary approach.

At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, we are one of West Virginia’s most comprehensive legal practices, yet our practice areas are interrelated. This is important. When developing your auto accident personal injury claim, we are able to address multiple aspects of the case. For example, a single catastrophic event may involve serious personal injuries, property damage, criminal charges, bad faith insurance practices, and much more. We can address them all – and provide you with the best chance at an optimal result.

3. Client Focus

Everyone wants a client-focused law firm. As an automobile accident personal injury victim, this is especially important. Aside from the legal aspects you are dealing with, you are likely also facing significant stress, emotional and physical pain, suffering, and general distress. The last thing you need is to be brushed aside by the one person who should have your back – your attorney.

At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, our focus is on providing a highly personalized level of compassionate client care. We maintain a full-time office staff to attend to the firm’s research and administrative needs. This allows our attorneys to focus their time on developing the legal aspects of your case while providing the legal services you need in a timely – and affordable – manner.

We pride ourselves on client accessibility. Because we believe that the best way to help you resolve your legal issue is to learn the facts of your case and your goals for the outcome of the claim, we do exactly that – and keep those goals in mind as the case progresses. We provide you with our full attention, answer your pressing legal questions, and deliver straightforward advice about your case (and its likely outcome) every step of the way to its conclusion.

We answer our phones around the clock and if you are unable to come to our office in Morgantown, we will come to you, so don’t be afraid to reach out to us anytime, day or night!

4. Reputation

It’s no secret that your prospective attorney’s reputation says a lot about his ability to deliver results. When your health, mobility, ability to earn a living – and survive – is on the line, it’s not enough to simply look in the phone book or read legal advertisements. Ask friends, neighbors, and coworkers for recommendations. Read online reviews from actual clients. Consult the West Virginia Bar Association or local law library. You only get one chance to recover for your existing and future losses. Be sure you hire the best attorney.

Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law has earned a longstanding reputation for providing cost-efficient, personalized service with a strong focus on client care. We have earned the trust and respect of our clients by keeping them informed throughout the entire process, providing support, and optimal legal representation to achieve favorable results.

We have earned the trust and respect of our peers within the legal arena, as well. We have distinguished ourselves by exhibiting exceptional judgment, laser-like focus, logistical ability, and analytical skills at the negotiating table – and an absolutely fearless, driven, confident, and aggressive presence in the courtroom. Our attorneys have been also recognized for numerous outstanding professional achievements. At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, our reputation is sterling.

5. Results

Finally, nothing says more about your attorney’s ability than his prior record of case results. Although there are certainly no guarantees in life – or in the courtroom – you should, at a minimum, ensure that your attorney has consistently proven his ability to recover fair compensation for his seriously injured clients.

At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, we believe our track record of proven results speaks for itself. Since 1952, our firm’s hands-on approach has helped us successfully pursue the maximum possible compensation for each of our clients. While this particular strategy involves additional work for our team, it is an approach which gets the results our clients want.

We have secured millions for our seriously injured clients.
