Written by:

It can be hard to know where to turn after a serious injury. There’s no shortage of personal injury attorneys in Atlanta who claim to offer expert representation, but you need to make sure you choose one who can live up to those claims. Today’s post explores a few of the qualities you should look for in a personal injury attorney.

At Fairell Roy & Associates, we advocate for injured victims and work tirelessly to help them secure the compensation they need to recover. Whether you’ve been injured in a slip or fall, auto accident, commercial trucking accident, or have sustained a serious injury due to the negligence of another party, know that help is just a call away. Contact the Fairell Roy & Associates office for a free virtual consultation and read on to learn more about how to find the best personal injury attorney for your circumstances.

Free Consultations

You shouldn’t have to pay to find out if you need a personal injury attorney. While many attorneys do offer free consultations, some will charge you just to meet with them to discuss your case. While this can make a firm seem exclusive or prestigious, you should keep in mind that a consultation is designed to help you determine the next steps to take and whether or not the attorney is a good fit for your case.

At Fairell Roy & Associates, we put our clients first and proudly offer free consultations for personal injury cases. You have enough on your plate following an injury. We want you to do what’s best for you, and we’ll never charge you to find that out.

Experience With Cases Like Yours

When meeting with a personal injury attorney to discuss your case, you should always ask about their experience with cases like yours as well as the outcomes they were able to achieve for their clients. While they may not be able to give you specifics, they should be able to give you some insight into their track record.

Experience with cases like yours isn’t just crucial in order for you to recover compensation, however — it could make the difference between recovering maximum compensation and nothing at all. For instance, many people mistakenly, but understandably, contact auto accident attorneys after sustaining injuries in a commercial trucking accident. These practice areas seem similar enough at first glance, but both cases have nuances and complexities that are best handled by someone who has specialized in them.


Testimonials are an important part of the search process that you may have to look up on your own. In the best-case scenario, a personal injury attorney will have testimonials readily available for you to read. The testimonials should give you some insight into whether or not your experience lines up with what others are saying. For instance, do you get the sense that the attorney will respond in a timely manner? Do they have negative feedback? If so, how did they respond? Answering questions like these is a great way to cross-check your experience and increase your confidence that you’re making the right decision.

As noted above, we take immense pride in advocating for our clients and working to secure the compensation they deserve. We make our testimonials readily available and we invite you to look through them. If you have any questions about what you see, feel free to reach out. We’re always happy to answer any questions you have about us.
