Televisions all over the state of South Carolina have become the portals for personal injury attorneys to advertise their services. On any given day or evening, you can turn on your set and see personal injury attorneys telling you they are the best.
When you have been injured in an accident, you are already upset, confused, and dealing with medical treatment. The last thing that you want is to have to decipher fact from marketing fiction. Here is some information about the Rick Hall Law Firm, LLC, in Lexington, South Carolina, as well as some ideas about what to consider when hiring a South Carolina car accident injury lawyer.
Make sure they have done what they say they can do
When you are considering hiring an attorney following a car accident injury, review their case results and where that ranks among other South Carolina personal injury attorneys working in their region. Many will highlight their largest settlements, but may not tell you that they settled for less than the full value their client was entitled to; or that they lost a large jury award on appeal. The last thing you need is to get involved with a lawyer who doesn't live up to their boasts or claims.
At the Rick Hall Law Firm, LLC, in Lexington, we have done the work over the years and we allow our record to speak for our success. Our approach to practicing law with integrity has earned our founder, attorney Rick Hall, Martindale-Hubbell's highest AV Pre-eminent peer review rating for legal knowledge and ethical standards. Martindale-Hubbell has been providing attorney peer review ratings for more than 100 years and is considered the most prestigious rating system for attorneys.
Attorney Hall has also been selected as a member of the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 lawyers in the state of South Carolina for his talents in civil litigation, which includes the specialization of personal injury law. Associate Attorney Jennifer Cooper has been selected numerous times to facilitate courses at the Department of Justice's National Advocacy Center School and is a former prosecutor who has served as an adjunct professor at Trident Technical College who taught premises liability and business law.
Make sure you are treated as the individual you are
When you are in the process of selecting an attorney to represent you following a car wreck, or any negligence litigation matter, choose one who views you as an individual, and not just another case file. Your injuries, the sense of injustice you suffered, and the effects on your family are personal. At Rick Hall Law Firm, we never forget that.
Any attorney who will tell you they have represented others who have been in your exact situation needs to explain the specifics. The truth is, nobody has ever been exactly in your situation. The attorneys at Rick Hall Law Firm, LLC have handled countless South Carolina motor vehicle accident injury cases. Many have similar legal components, but no two have ever been exactly alike. We recognize that every client who chooses to walk through our doors is an individual with a unique set of concerns and circumstances; each needing a satisfactory resolution to their case.
Make sure you feel valued and respected
There is no doubt that practicing attorneys are highly educated and skilled professionals. Lawyers spend years learning about the law, followed by countless hours studying to pass the bar exam. But education is not enough. The lawyer you hire must understand and prove that your case is about helping you get the best possible outcome - not just any outcome.
At Rick Hall Law Firm, LLC, we value each and every one of our clients. Our attorneys believe that you deserve to be treated in the same manner in which we want to be treated. We also believe that there is no question that is too insignificant to answer. We want to make sure that we make you feel comfortable enough to lay all of your concerns on the table. We simply believe that you deserve to understand all aspects of your car accident personal injury case. When you retain us as your law firm, you have the right to feel confident and empowered.
