What to Look for When Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

When you’ve been injured due to someone’s negligence, the decision to hire a personal injury attorney to help you with your case is a personal one. When deciding which attorney to hire, there are some important criteria you should look for.


Focused Practice

Some law firms practice personal injury law along with other areas such as criminal law or family law. When you find an attorney who specializes in personal injury law, then you are more likely to be dealing with someone who has expertise in the field. In addition, you might want to make sure they only represent accident victims and that they do not represent insurance companies as well. At Bonina & Bonina, P.C., we only help injury victims, and personal injury is our sole focus.



Many lawyers claim to handle personal injury cases, but you want to find someone who has extensive experience in the field. This experience should also include trial experience because while a trial may not be necessary in your case, it is important to have an attorney who can handle the possibility. For over 50 years, Bonina & Bonina, P.C. has been helping injured victims. Our attorneys also have extensive trial experience and are prepared to take your case where it needs to go.


Proven Results

When hiring a personal injury attorney, you want to make sure you find someone who has proven that they can get the job done. This is typically demonstrated through positive testimonials from former clients. If former clients have been happy with the attorney’s performance, then it is more likely that you will have a positive experience. Our testimonials can be found here.


Contingency Fee

Before hiring a personal injury attorney, you should ensure that they will take your case on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorney will not take a fee upfront and will only get paid after you have received a verdict or settlement. At Bonina & Bonina, P.C., all of our cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, so you pay nothing upfront.


Free Consultations

When looking for a personal injury attorney, you should find one that offers a free consultation to potential clients. These consultations are an opportunity for the attorney to evaluate your case and your chance to see if you feel comfortable with the attorney.
