If you have been seriously injured in an accident you probably should seek the advice of an experienced accident lawyer right away.

You may experience temporary or permanent inability to work, physical and emotional pain, loss of enjoyment of life, physical limitations and expensive medical bills. Finding and choosing an experienced and capable injury lawyer promptly is an important decision, as it can make the difference between a successful outcome and an unsuccessful one. The information on this page is provided to give you some helpful hints on choosing the accident lawyer that is right for you.

What to avoid when you need to hire an accident lawyer:

Many people do not know where to find a skilled and qualified attorney who can aggressively represent their case. The following are some common mistakes that people make when choosing an injury attorney:

- Choosing an injury lawyer because the office is local: Convenience should not be as significant as skill, professionalism, experience, and the ability to effectively represent you in your case. You should try to find an attorney who has all of the qualities that are needed for a successful outcome in your case.

- Choosing an inexperienced accident lawyer: Your attorney should be experienced in personal injury claims and up to date on current laws and current cases regarding all areas of accident law. Your lawyer should have the knowledge to answer questions about your claims quickly and effortlessly.

In August 2018 3M Co. agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle allegations that it and its predecessor, Aearo Technologies Inc, knowingly sold defective combat ear plugs to the U.S. military. The ear plugs were too short for proper insertion into the users' ears and could easily loosen and not perform effectively. Military personnel who suffered hearing loss during combat or training exercises between 2003 to 2015 may qualify for a one-time award.
