Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney

When searching for an Atlanta personal injury lawyer, you want to hire an attorney that has the capacity to effectively take on your case, the know-how and experience with your type of claim, and the resources to go the distance for your case. It is important to retain a law firm that will take your case all the way to trial if needed to obtain a fair recovery. Insurers know which personal injury lawyers are merely paper pushers, i.e., which lawyers just process the claim and then either push clients to settle or refer the case to another lawyer if it cannot be settled quickly.

What To Look For When Hiring A Personal Injury Lawyer

Size does matter when it comes to personal injury law firms, and bigger is not always better. Taking a personal injury case to trial does not require a firm with 100 plus lawyers. An overwhelming majority of personal injury claims only have one lawyer that actually works on the case. For very large personal injury cases that do require multiple lawyers, small firms like mine will associate another lawyer to assist, sharing the case costs and workload. Even the most experienced trial lawyers associate lawyers from other firms on larger, more complex cases.

It is also important to hire a lawyer that has good support staff allowing the lawyer to focus on significant factual and legal issues while the support staff handles the more routine aspects of the case. Insurers bury claimants (and their lawyers) with paperwork, so an attorney who is not properly staffed will easily get bogged down in “urgent” lower-level tasks that must get done but have little impact on the value of the case.

When you hire a “billboard lawyer” you get big overhead costs. This means that the big advertising firm will likely staff your case with their profit in mind. At the bigger personal injury law firms in Atlanta, ONE attorney has as many as 300 to 400 open cases with several case managers assigned to assist the lawyer. A case manager’s primary job is to keep the lawyer from actually having to communicate with the client, and with that many open files, there just is not time for meaningful lawyer to client communications. At their best, case managers serve as a point of contact for the client and assist the client with treatment and initial insurance paperwork, but they often have little legal training to provide quality advice. Typically, a case manager will have anywhere from 80 to 100 open files. Accordingly, nuances about your case can easily get missed. If your case does not fit into a cookie cutter mold (and few actually do), it may not be handled in a manner that maximizes the recovery to you.

Our Case Load is Smaller, Because Your Case is a Big Deal to Me

I carry less than 50 active cases (far, far less than the average big advertising lawyer). I have an incredible legal support team that includes a full-time paralegal with over 30 years of experience in personal injury and a full-time client on-boarding specialist who assists with all the paperwork necessary to get a case up and running. Thus, a quality boutique trial firm like The Baer Law Firm can devote far more time, attention, and resources to your case which is what you really want from your lawyer.

Furthermore, lawyers at big personal injury law firms are under immense pressure to meet monthly and quarterly revenue goals. The advertisements that I see about how you need a “big personal injury law firm to fight the big insurance company because smaller firms have economic pressure to settle for less are incredibly misleading. Attorneys at big law firms are under way more pressure than a successful smaller personal injury firm to settle cases because big firm personal injury lawyers have to meet an arbitrary revenue goal and answer to a supervisor that could care a less about any individual case.

When choosing a law firm, it is important to ask about the background and experience of the specific lawyer that will be assigned to your case. While many of the big firms have some excellent lawyers, they also have many lawyers who have only been out of law school a year or two. These lawyers are “supervised” by more experienced attorneys but given the sheer volume (300+) of cases they and the “supervising lawyer” are responsible for, therefore it is unlikely that meaningful supervision on your case will occur unless and until there is an emergency. You do not want your personal injury claim to be in “emergency” status before an experienced lawyer takes a hard look at it.

The Baer Law Firm has the capacity to take on your case, the know-how and experience with your type of case, and the resources to go the distance for your case.
