5 Questions to Ask an Injury Attorney

Auto accident Whether from an 18 wheeler accident or an offshore drilling accident, an injury caused by another driver or by unsafe working conditions can turn your life upside down.

No one ever said life is fair, and these kinds of accidents really drive that point home.

But we at Anderson, Dozier, Blanda & Saltzman want you to know that the legal system exists to serve you, to tip the scales back in your favor when tragedy strikes your life because of someone else’s poor decisions.

You can’t undo the damage that’s been done. But you may be eligible to receive compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages. That’s what we fight for.

Selecting a qualified injury lawyer can be a very difficult and confusing experience, especially if it’s your first time dealing with lawyers or law firms.

The first step is to meet with us to discuss the specifics of your case. Our experienced attorneys can advise you of your chances of recovery and can help you understand your options.

Whether you let us handle your case or you choose to go with another firm, knowledge is key to getting the fair outcome you deserve. So to help you understand what to expect in the weeks to come, here are 5 key questions you should ask before hiring a personal injury lawyer.

  1. What areas of law do you specialize in? We specialize in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from maritime/offshore accidents, trucking/18-wheeler accidents, automobile accidents, onshore/industrial accidents, products liability, and premises defect.
  2. Have you handled injury cases like mine before? Our team has more than 80 years of combined experience and has successfully litigated more than 10,000 cases.
  3. How many personal injury cases have you taken to trial? What were the results? We’ve handled over 60 jury trials. Some of our jury verdicts can be seen here.
  4. How long does it take to resolve an injury case like mine? Because every case is different, this is tough to answer. But we discuss the question in detail here.
  5. What is your contingency fee? Because all personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, you will not be charged any fees unless a claim recovery is made.
Client Reviews
★★★★★
Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.

Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.

With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my life...an exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
