Your Car Crash: Choosing the Right Lawyer
When you have been injured in a car crash that you didn’t cause to happen, your friends and family will undoubtedly advise you to “talk to a lawyer.” That’s great advice, but it does not mean, “pick the first law firm you find on Google.” You might get a referral from someone you trust who has had a successful experience with his or her own personal injury case. You are not expected to hire the first attorney you come into contact with, or the referral you received. No matter how you conduct your search, your goal must be to find an injury firm who will devote personal time and attention to your case, and see it all the way through to its conclusion in a fair settlement to compensate you for your injuries.
Ask prospective injury law firms:
- Are you familiar with the ins and outs of cases like mine?
- Can you show me successful cases where you negotiated the settlements your clients deserved?
- How busy are you? How many cases do you take on simultaneously?
- How responsive will you be if I need to call you about my case?
In choosing your representation, don’t think you will do better if you go with the power and reputation of a giant law firm. Many of these become large-scale factories that regard injured individuals and their cases as numbers. You may risk inattention and delays.
We believe that dedicated, personal attention and continual client communication produce the best possible representation an injury firm can offer to personal injury clients. To obtain the best results—the results an injured client deserves— your lawyer will listen carefully, and learn about the facts of the vehicle crash and the details of your injury’s impact on yourself, your family, and your career. Your attorney must show a personal understanding that an injury can be a severe, even life-changing event, and be ready to help you in every way to get back to normal as quickly as possible.
It’s important to have representation that treats you with respect and responsiveness, and patiently and firmly negotiate to maximize your compensation and reach a beneficial settlement, avoiding litigation.
