What can I expect from my attorney? What will he or she do for me?
If you have been in an accident, or the victim of another person’s neglect, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. However, a personal injury case is never a simple matter, and it takes the expertise of experienced attorneys to understand the complexities of the process.
You should expect your attorney to conduct a thorough investigation into the accident. He or she should also understand the laws governing the jurisdiction in which your accident occurred, and to present information to you in a manner that you understand. Whenever possible, your attorney will attempt to collect statements and information from key eyewitnesses to the accident in order to best understand what happened. Your attorney will also collect copies of your medical records and expenses as they relate to your case.
You should also expect an experienced attorney - especially one with trial experience - to readily anticipate the arguments and challenges to your case that the defense can/will present. Proving liability in a personal injury case is no small feat -- there are a number of different intricacies at play depending on the situation/circumstance. This is why you should contact us to set up your FREE initial consultation before you do anything else after your accident.
Additionally, your attorney will deal with the insurance company - something that will provide you with peace of mind as you begin the lengthy process of recovery. In all instances, it is important to remember that the insurance company hires representatives whose main job is to save them money, and they will do this in various ways. Insurance company representatives may use your words against you later. In this sense, the best person to speak to the insurance company will be your experienced and knowledgeable injury attorney.
