Auto accidents happen to thousands of Americans every day, yet few people know what to do once they have been involved in an accident – and they know even less about how to select a good auto accident lawyer to represent them.

Choosing the right auto accident lawyer in New York can mean the difference between collecting fair compensation for the harm to you and your loved one or getting no compensation, or worse, being held responsible for the accident yourself. If you have suffered a serious injury in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence, our experienced Kingston auto accident attorney Charles N. Rock can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Background and Experience

When you are researching auto accident lawyers, the first thing you should look for is background and experience. Does the attorney have a strong record of success in handling cases similar to yours? Do they have a good reputation as a trial lawyer?

Auto accident claims can often be settled outside of court, but it is always best to choose an attorney that is prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. In order to avoid going to court, insurance companies tend to offer you a larger settlement if you have an attorney who is known as a solid trial lawyer. This can help your case receive the attention it deserves.
