How do I choose the best attorney for my boat accident claim?
The other day I got a call; someone was on Lake Travis and, unfortunately, they were hit by another boat and seriously injured. They asked, “How do I go about choosing the right boating accident attorney?” The first thing is you have to be able to establish a level of comfort and trust with that attorney in the first meeting, whether it be over the phone or in-person.
The next thing is you need someone who has experience in boating accidents. Boating accidents are very unique. They’re different than car wrecks. Also, different law may apply, depending on where the boating accident occurred. You need an attorney that’s familiar with that.
Third, you need to hire a trial attorney. Insurance companies on the other side know who the trial attorneys are, and they treat the trial attorneys – which means they will treat you – differently. That gives you a better chance for a more fair settlement offer during litigation. If, for whatever reason, you’re unable to resolve your case during litigation and you have to go to trial, you have an attorney that’s ready to go to trial and get you the best result possible.
If you’ve been in a boating accident, please don’t hesitate to give my office a call. We’ll be happy to answer any questions.
