Find the Best Top Cincinnati Accident Injury Lawyer

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

If you have suffered a personal injury you probably want to find the best top accident injury lawyer or you can take a shot in the dark and represent yourself. This can be a big dilemna for an car accident or other injury victim. Some think lawyers are ambulance chasers and will charge a fee that will eat up all the money. I do not dispute that there are some so called ambulance chasers and some lawyers are just not equipped to handle a personal injury claim.

On the other hand a lay person that handles a serious injury claim may get much less net in their pocket than an experienced top ranked lawyer may be able to net them. I recently came across a well researched post on the value a top personal injury lawyer can add to the case.( I’m happy to provide you this article on request) This coincides with an Allstate document that describes why they try to steer injury victims away from lawyers and states “We end up paying represented claimants up to three times as much as unrepresented claimants.”

So how do you find a list , directory or other source that gives attorney rankings. Two sources are AVVO.com and Martindale hubbel. Avvo ranks lawyers on a multitude of factors and gives the highest ranked attorneys a 10 or a suberb rating. The highest rating Matindale Hubbel gives is a preeminent rating. The BBB better business bureau rates businesses including lawyers. So those are three places to look to find a top ranked attorney. Do you research. That’s why I wrote Attorney Advertising Revealed. Click this link Attorney Advertising revealed to go to a page where you can download this book for free.

Attorney Advertising  revealed gives you suggestions for finding an experienced  personal injury lawyer. Yes you can find referral services and directories but many of them do not vet the attorney and merely require payment and a lawyer to be in good standing to be included.

With the advent of lawyer web sites and through the use of Martindale hubbel and AVVO as well as the Super Lawyer Magazine Web site you should be able to narrow down your choice of an accident injury lawyer and distiguish a hard working lawyer from the ambulance chasers. One thing you can count on unfortunately is a barrage of mail soliciting your injury claim. Think seriously before you hire a lawyer just because they mailed you a letter.

I’m happy to answer your questions about what I offer my clients and have numerous reviews and testimonials from former clients on my web site.

One Of The Best Top Lawyers I Know

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

As a practicing personal injury attorney for 30 years I have gotten to know a lot of lawyers. Also in attending seminars across the country or as a result of participating in lawyer groups I get to meet lawyers from all over. You get to know the characteristics that make a good lawyer , especially a personal injury lawyer.

Recently I had the priviledge to coauthor a best selling book, A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing -What The Insurance Company Doesn’t Want You To Know and Won’t Tell You Until It’s Too Late. There were 14 other prominent attorneys that contributed a chapter to the book. One of them was attorney Richard Hastings of Connecticut. His chapter, The Insurance Company Offerred Me Money but I don’t Know What My Claim is Worth, impressed me as the best chapter written by all the attorneys and one that is super helpful to personal injury victims in learning what steps to take to help get fair value for their case.

Richard and I have had many occasions to talk on the phone, trade emails, trade ideas many times over the last several months. He has impressed me as super knowledgeable, and super dedicated to his clients. He works hard on a daily basis to continue to learn anything he can to advance his clients interests and to help the public with educational books, articles and other material.

Richard has a unique Teen Driver and Parent Guardian contract, a customizable document outlining your rules and expectations for your child and his/her use of your motor vehicle. How tragic is a teen car crash the seriously injures themselves or someone else or causes death. Richard has come up with this idea that he freely gives to anyone. This can go a long way in empasizing to your child the seriousness of driving a car and quite possibly could save your child’s life. Go here to download the parent teen driver contract by Richard Hastings

He has many more educational materials on his web site . He shared with me his book, The Crash Course on Personal Injury Claims in Connecticut. This is not only a book to read , but he has developed a workbook for his clients to use, that helps the client help the lawyer get them more money. Some lawyers leave it to chance that the client will do the right thing throughout the process of their injury claim. But sadly far too many clients are left in the dark about the process and how there own actions can affect it . These materials have helped me improve on some of the things I do with my clients to move their case to a full and fair settlement.

Richard is driven to continully keep abreast with any new development so he can put it to good use for his clients. As with any serious personal injury attorney worth their salt, Richard cares deeply about his clients. In one of our discusions he related how he had taken on the case of a seriously and permanently injured young person. He was so stuck by the magnitude of her loss and the devastation to her and her family that after meeting them and finishing his visit, he had to sit in his car for a long time before he could drive away because he was to touched by the pain and loss he saw in this family.

Richard not only cares , he is street smart and is book smart. He has taken several classes at Harvard University in his quest to become a better attorney. Plus he has a great sense of humor and is totally down to earth. He understands he’s been given a gift to use to help others.

Even if you are not from Connecticut, Richard has great content on his web site that may help you with your personal injury case . I highly recommend you take a look at it at Connecticut personal injury attorney web site

And if you do have a Connecticut personal injury case, you owe it to yourself to talk with attorney Richard Hastings before you make a mistake that could cost you your financial well being.
