In the Chattanooga area, there is an overabundance of personal injury lawyers who run continuous television ads and have their pictures on billboards and on the side of those buses all over town. Injured people are overwhelmed with these ads on a daily basis and they are often the first attorneys that personal injury victims call when they are looking for legal representation.
How To Find The Best Personal Injury Attorney To Maximize Your Settlement
With so many firms to choose from, it can be difficult to make a decision. But choosing the right attorney is critical to ensuring you get the fairest settlement for your injuries.
When looking for the best personal injury lawyer in Chattanooga, there are many reasons you probably should not hire that attorney you see advertised all over the place. Here are a few reasons why:
- You probably will never actually speak with the attorney you are attempting to hire.
- Many times, the lawyer you see is just a figurehead for the firm. The chances are pretty good that they are not trying cases themselves and the chances are also pretty good that they will never see or work on your case.
- Many times, people who hire a widely advertised lawyer will not actually ever interact with an attorney. They will be forced to always talk to paralegals.
At Dennis and King, you will meet with one of our name lawyers and have a face-to-face conversation the first time you come in to visit with us for a free claim strategy session. We apply an individual approach to every case we take on. Recommendations from former clients are the main sources of our new cases. This is one of the reasons you will not see our picture on the side of a bus or billboard anytime soon.
Why Choose Experience Over Advertising
Often, lawyers who are heavily advertised are just trying to get as many simple “ordinary” cases as possible so they can get the best return on their investment by putting in as little time as possible. They are not proactive as they develop a strategy for clients to get them the settlement/compensation they deserve.
Handling a high quantity of cases does not equate to a high-quality lawyer.
The simple matter is that lawyers who get the best results, settlements and verdicts in a trial are the ones who have a proven track record of actually trying cases. Those lawyers are the ones who are willing and able to put in work, invest their time, and go to bat for their clients. Many attorneys, especially those who rely on a high volume of cases for their revenue, simply are not willing to do that.
Injured people looking for a personal injury attorney cannot always trust what they see on advertisements either. While Dennis and King is certainly interested in taking on your personal injury case, we are more concerned about individuals getting the best possible representation for their claim. Hiring a personal injury attorney should be seen as an investment, and you should do your due diligence to find the best personal injury lawyer to represent you.
