How do I Hire the Best Personal Injury Attorney or Wrongful Death Attorney?

Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Chicago and Surrounding Areas

If you have been injured and are in need of legal assistance, it is key that you do your research before hiring just any attorney. Similarly, if a loved one has been killed due to someone else’s actions, you will want to ensure that you work with an attorney who works with wrongful death. It is important to look for someone who has experience handling the specific type of personal injury/wrongful death issue that you are facing, or rather a personal injury attorney that has experience handling cases similar to yours. For example, medical malpractice cases can be costly and often involve complex medical issues. Therefore, it is crucial to choose a firm with the experience, legal knowledge, medical knowledge/experts, and financial resources needed to maximize compensation for you.

Obtaining referrals is one way of starting out with your research. Once you obtain the names of several attorneys, you will want to ensure that you meet with each person to get a feel for what instinctively feels right to you. You can find out about referrals by talking to family and friends, as well as doing research online. Another source might be a lawyer that you trust who works in another area of law (such as family law), but who knows a good practitioner in personal injury law and/or wrongful death claims.

For over 35 years, the attorneys at Levin & Perconti have represented clients in all types of personal injury and wrongful death matters, including those involving:

Key Questions

In your initial (usually free) consultation with an attorney, there are some questions that you can ask to help get a better feel for the attorney, such as:

  • How long have they been practicing in personal injury and/or wrongful death?
  • Do they practice in other areas, or just personal injury and/or wrongful death?
  • Do they typically handle plaintiff cases, specifically?
  • Are there other clients they can refer you to in order to get a feel for their experience working with the attorney?
  • What are some examples of successful cases the firm and/or attorney has handled?

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way.
