In today’s busy marketplace, personal injury lawyer marketing is everywhere: roadside billboards, print advertisements, digital ads etc. It’s easy to be inundated with the marketing noise. With so much, how do you know what and who to listen to? How do you know who to hire?
Generally, billboard-style ads are very effective, but they don’t always tell you that much about the lawyer’s reputation, experience and success rate. Outdoor marketing is designed to help build brand awareness and catch your attention in the moment.
If you’ve never been injured in an car accident, or on someone’s property, you likely have no experience with personal injury lawyers. You might not even know one. So general billboard style advertising is actually an effective way to make an introduction so you have an idea who to call when the unfortunate does happen. In other words, outdoor marketing introduces you to a brand before you need it.
If you are reading this, you or your family member might have suffered a serious injury and you’re trying to figure out who to call. Here are a few tips to get you started:
As with choosing any professional, it’s wise to interview more than one professional, unless of course you have a strong positive connection with the first person right from the get go.
The very first thing you want to keep in mind is how long it takes for a lawyer to get back to you. Whether you call, email or live chat, do they get in touch with you right away? We would say that someone should get back to you within 12-24 hours. If the injury is very serious, then a lawyer should get back to you within 1 hour. This would be the first indication that you will be a priority.
If you call or schedule consultations with a few personal injury lawyers, it is important you ask the right questions, such as:
Personal injury claims are usually divided into the following types:
Each type is unique and may require different procedures, steps and strategy to get you the justice you deserve. A lawyer with experience handling cases similar to yours will have the experience and insight to properly fight for you which will work to your benefit. However, there should be a good connection between you and your lawyer. It’s not only very important that you hire a personal lawyer with experience, but also a personal injury lawyer that you can sit and have a conversation with. In other words, if you were suffered a spinal cord injury – what happens if your lawyer is highly specialized and experienced the area, but comes off as dismissive or he does not call you back? He might not be the right lawyer for you.
