The previous article in this series addressed what your lawyer should do in personal injury (PI), cases. This article describes how to deal with an attorney that isn’t doing what he’s supposed to.
It has always been a surprise to me how many PI attorneys are able to sit on a particular case. Just think about it. Most attorneys receive a contingent fee. That means they get a share of the money they make for you. It is absurd that your attorney would leave your case inactive. It is important to note that overhead expenses for attorneys are not sitting idle.

So how do you determine if an attorney has the highest rating in your local area? The answer is simple: he publishes his million-dollar results directly on his website. I only recommend the best. The results speak for themselves. An attorney who doesn’t display their results on his website is not proud. You can trust that an attorney who has successfully managed your case and has recovered over a half million dollars for individual clients will know how to manage it. Insurance companies know of the reputations of highly successful attorneys. It can make a huge difference to an insurance company when deciding whether to settle the case for a reasonable amount.
