Assuming that you've already decided that you need to file a lawsuit over a car accident, you still have some big decisions in front of you. First and foremost is deciding upon which attorney you want to represent your claim. The field of personal injury law is full of practitioners, so you do have plenty of options, but there are also some sensible criteria that you can use to determine which attorney would best be able to represent you. Here are some things to consider.
If you've ever studied anything about trials, you know that eyewitness accounts aren't given much weight during the course of a court proceeding. This is because people, no matter how much they will protest hearing this, really don't have very good memories on the average. Your memory is very complex and, if you happen to have been in a car accident, you definitely are likely to have holes in your memory that result from the adrenaline of being in the accident, the intense fear of knowing that an accident is coming, if you did see it coming, and other factors that play into this.
