You have an important choice to make. You want to hire a nursing home abuse lawyer who is ethical and committed to his clients, and is the right person for the job.
The attorney you hire will have a significant impact on the outcome of your loved one’s nursing home abuse case. Therefore, it is important to learn everything you can about an individual lawyer before you hire him or her.
Three Ways to Learn More About a Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Before you hire a lawyer, it is important to:
- Search the Kentucky Bar Association website. Here, you can find out whether the attorney you are considering is currently suspended from practicing law in Kentucky or has been disbarred and can no longer practice law in the Commonwealth.
- Look at reviews and testimonials to see what others think of the lawyer. One of the best ways to learn about an attorney is to find out the specific reasons why a previous client liked or did not like the lawyer. This can help you find out more about an attorney’s strengths and weaknesses. It is important to look on the attorney’s law firm website and also on legal sites such as Avvo.com.
- Meet with the attorney in person. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions and to assess the lawyer face to face. Your instincts and your gut feeling about the lawyer are really important to your determination about which lawyer is right for you and your family.
Together, this information can help you decide which nursing home abuse lawyer to work with to obtain fair and just compensation after a nursing home abuse or neglect injury.
