Beyond just the right attorney, select a lawyer at a law firm that is made up of industry insiders.

Former insurance adjusters, emergency medical services (EMS) professionals, and others from health care backgrounds, along with their legal training have industry knowledge that is pertinent and helpful to all parts of your claim process. Selecting a law firm that carefully curates a team of experts to work on your case means better results for your treatment, negotiations process, and settlement.

Whether you’ve had a car accident with an e-scooter or an 18 wheeler, you deserve attorney representation from an expert who has fought and won cases against all types of at-fault interests.

From there, you are assigned a full legal team, replete with investigators, paralegals to help guide you through the treatment and negotiation stages of your case and, of course, your expert attorney.

Working with an attorney who has a streamlined, effective, and efficient process is very important. During the stressful aftermath of a car accident, with uncertainty about your injuries and your vehicle swirling around you, the last thing you need is an additional worry. Select a lawyer with an organized operation, who knows how to communicate, and who seeks to care for clients in the best possible way.

Another critically important part of selecting a car accident law firm is weighing the fee structure options of the lawyers you are considering. With Thompson Law, you benefit from a contingency fee structure. Not only does this simplify your life during the treatment and negotiation phases of your claim by deferring legal bills until settlement, but it is also the most fair payment method. At Thompson Law, we only win if you do. Contingency fee basis means that your attorney is compensated for his or her work after winning your settlement or case for you, so our interests are aligned. We are in the fight together for your highest rightful compensation.


Select A Lawyer Who Will Provide Quality Service and Results

Quality of personal injury law service means receiving the maximum just settlement or successful case outcome for a client, all while receiving excellent customer service.

It is important to conduct due diligence after a car accident to locate the right personal injury lawyer for your case. Determining which attorney provides the best quality services and delivers results can seem daunting but does not need to be. There are many tools available to filter the best from the rest. Consult referrals from friends and family and check the web for ratings and reviews. Places like Google reviews and Facebook pages can tell you the experiences of former clients and give you the opportunity to see how a law firm’s service was for others. Other legal-specific sites such as Justia and Avvo can provide valuable information about the standing of a lawyer you are considering.

All of these web resources can help narrow your search. Once you have a favorite lawyer or two you think would work best, look at their specific results. The American Bar Association requires and regulates specific reporting of an attorney’s results. This guarantees honest representation to the public. After your car accident, you need an attorney who not only fights hard for you but also has a formidable track record of success. At Thompson Law, our results speak volumes.
