Small Firm vs. Big Firm for Personal Injury

If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another party, you should speak to an attorney sooner rather than later. Even if you’re confident that the other party is at fault and you believe that your needs will be properly addressed, this sadly isn’t always the case. At-fault parties are often hesitant to admit fault. Their insurance companies often take issue with medical treatment whether it’s the type or amount of treatment that you undergo. And businesses such as trucking companies and product manufacturers hire teams of lawyers dedicated to minimizing claims.

And insurance companies are generally looking to pay as little as possible on every claim.

Having an attorney on your side not only shows these other parties that you mean business, but an attorney provides vital guidance through the complexities of our legal system. Simply stated, if you wish to receive the full amount that you are entitled to, you should have an experienced personal injury attorney by your side.

The question is…who do you hire?

You’ve likely seen advertisements and billboards for personal injury firms. Those firms spend a large mount of money on marketing. Though they might claim they can achieve a satisfactory result for you, you may find the process to be lacking.

The Problem with Large Firms

The attorneys at larger firms certainly know the laws involving personal injury. However, there’s a good chance you may not actually interact with them. Those firms may have teams of attorneys and legal assistants who deal with clients at various steps of the legal process, including pre-suit and the litigation process.  Some firms need to sign as many cases as possible to afford the larger overhead that comes with advertising and personnel.

With that approach, you may not receive the personal care or comfort that you deserve. You may only deal with legal assistants, who may be capable, but ultimately aren’t the attorney you hired.

The Benefits of a Small Injury Firm

Small firms tend to bring on fewer clients at a time, which allows them to provide those clients with more attention. While there are likely exceptions out there, you can almost always expect to sit down and share your situation directly with your attorney at a smaller firm. From there, they will walk with you through the process step by step.
