Title: What to Consider When Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney in Missouri

What to Consider When Hiring A Personal Injury
Attorney in Missouri

  • Accidental injuries disrupt the lives of
    thousands of people in Kansas City each year. In
    past years alone, 2,936 people in the city
    suffered injuries in motorcycle accidents, as did
    15,101 people throughout Missouri, according to
    the Missouri Department of Transportation. With
    accidents involving defective products, animal
    attacks, unsafe premises and other dangers taken
    into account, even more of these injuries occur
    annually.

Track Record
It is also important to use information from
other sources to evaluate whether a given
attorney would be an effective representative.
Victims may want to consider reviews and
testimonials from former clients, recommendations
from trusted sources and case outcomes.
Additionally, victims should check whether an
attorney is in good standing with the Missouri
Bar Association. Loss of standing may indicate
ethical violations or other lapses.
4
Niche Experience
Injury victims should focus on finding an
attorney who focuses primarily on personal injury
law and has experience practicing in Missouri.
Whether a person has suffered a traumatic brain
injury or nursing home abuse, it is important to
confirm that the attorney has experience with the
particular type of injury and area of law. Other
lawyers may not be able to adequately advise a
person on the strength of his or her case, the
damages that may be available and the most
suitable legal strategy.
5
Law Firm Qualities
If a personal injury lawyer seems like a strong
choice, victims still need to assess whether the
law firm as a whole offers the right fit. There
may be distinct benefits and drawbacks to working
with different firms. For example, a larger law
firm like Mayer Rosenberg, P.C., may have
greater resources, whereas a smaller firm may
provide more personal attention. People who are
looking for representation should identify and
focus on the qualities that they value most in a
law firm, such as responsiveness or
cost-effectiveness.
6
Likely Costs
Clients should always understand in advance which
of the following fee arrangements an attorney
uses
Flat rates, in which the total amount to be paid
is determined at the start of the working
relationship
Hourly rates, in which a client pays a fixed rate
for each billable hour
Contingency fee, which are only collected after a
client receives a settlement
7
Finding The Right Fit
In the face of medical costs and other
complications, victims of injuries may feel
rushed to find an experienced personal injury
attorney in Kansas City. However, taking time to
meet with multiple potential representatives is
essential. Considering the above issues and less
tangible factors, such as how comfortable
speaking with a given attorney is, can help a
person choose a more qualified, effective
advocate, which may improve the likelihood of a
favorable resolution to the case.
