If you or somebody you love has been injured due to the negligent actions of somebody else, you may have to file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover compensation for your damages. Securing maximum compensation for these cases usually involves working with a skilled personal injury attorney in Philadelphia. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., we want to discuss how you can choose the right personal injury attorney for your case.
The practice of law is highly specialized. This means that you should be able to find an attorney who works specifically with the type of injury you may have sustained. There are, however, many attorneys who do not specialize in personal injury. For example, you do not want to go to a family law specialist to help with your traumatic brain injury case.
There are several factors that are important when determining the right personal injury attorney for your case. Just like buying a car, you should do some comparison shopping of different attorneys in your area.
After you schedule meetings with a few different attorneys for a free consultation of your case, you will want to bring all of your documents to each visit (medical bills, accident reports, lost income information, etc.). Some of the questions you should ask a prospective personal injury attorney include:

At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., our dedicated and experienced team is ready to investigate your case in order to secure any compensation you are entitled to. This could include:
