When Indiana accident victims turn to Google for legal resources, “best personal injury attorney near me” is a search that will sometimes be used to locate attorneys.
And while that search might make sense, it begs the question: Does your Indiana personal injury attorney truly need to be located near you? Not necessarily.
Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney Near Me?
Many years ago, it may have proved more convenient for accident victims to hire a law firm near them for purposes of signing documents or completing other administrative tasks, however, in today’s world of email and Zoom, a firm’s location has become much less of a concern.
For example, Boulton Law Group is located in Brownsburg, Indiana, however, for the past 20+ years, Matt’s clients and their cases have been situated throughout the entire state, in cities small and large, such as:
Additionally, Matt is able to access Indiana accident reports for the entire state and can initiate his investigation the moment he is hired by the client.
Also, if needed, Matt is able to travel to his clients wherever they live, or as is often the case, he can handle the entire claim from start to finish using virtual means.
In fact, Matt has also handled a number of cases for clients who lived in another state but were involved in a car accident while traveling in Indiana.
Outside of a law firm’s location, there are a number of other factors that an accident victim and their family may wish to consider when selecting an attorney.
Choosing an Indiana Personal Injury Attorney
Before choosing a law firm to represent you, it is important to remember that no personal injury attorney can guarantee an outcome for your case. Additionally, the attorney-client relationship is bound by a strict code of ethics and guidelines.
With that in mind, it is normal to wonder what truly makes one attorney and law firm different from another. The following three features may help you to distinguish between firms and choose the one that best fits your needs:
- The attorney focuses exclusively on Indiana personal injury law.
Some firms, such as Boulton Law Group, will limit their practice to accident and injury cases, while other attorneys may focus on a number of case types, including family law, bankruptcy, DUI, etc. The latter attorney is sometimes referred to as a general practitioner.
Assuming they are properly licensed, a general practitioner has every right to handle a personal injury claim, however, an attorney who limits his or her focus to accident and injury law may have more experience with your case type.
- The attorney offers a contingent fee retainer. (No-Win No-Fee.)
Many accident victims are not in a position to pay an attorney upfront for their services. If this is true for you, you may wish to seek out an attorney who offers a contingent fee retainer that states you will never pay for a legal consultation and you owe the firm nothing unless they make a recovery on your behalf.
Boulton Law Group’s Zero Fee Guarantee helps to make sure injured Hoosiers can afford legal representation following an accident.
- Small law firms vs Big law firms.
Personal preference may lead some clients to large law firms, while others may seek out smaller firms. Again, there is no right or wrong choice here.
Boulton Law Group’s decision to remain focused on particular case types allows Matt to dedicate time to each client and prepare individual case strategies that might be difficult to achieve if he accepted large volumes of cases.
In addition to his custom approach to each client’s case, Matt also places equal importance on personal service, which speaks to the firm’s tagline: Get Treated Like Family.
At the end of the day, the attorney and law firm you hire is a personal choice and one that you should make based on your particular set of needs.
