Personal Injury Second Opinion
If you're in the process of choosing an attorney, and you're asking yourself, should I get a second opinion concerning my personal injury claim? Think of it like this, if you are getting a huge repair done on your home and it's going to cost a ton of money, would you want more than one opinion or would you choose the first guy you spoke to?
For a lot of us, when there is a lot at stake we would like to talk to several people on how they are going to best assist in our time of need. So why wouldn't you want to speak with a few attorneys to see who is going to be able to best help with your claim?
Here are a few key things to look for when thinking about which law practice you intend to hire to assist with your Personal Injury Case.
Your Lawyer Should Provide Regular Communication
Honest and consistent communication with your lawyer will guarantee that you are receiving the important updates regarding your claim so it can move along effectively, and so that you feel you're getting the support you need during this hard time.
Let's face it, Personal Injury Cases can take some time to settle. This means you may be working with your lawyer for months, or sometimes, years. You want to make sure that the lawyer you select is keeping you up to speed about the facts of your claim.
It's important for you to totally understand what is going on, and if there is anything your lawyer needs from you, it's crucial that you know so you can keep your claim going. Plus, who wants to deal with somebody who will not return calls or let you know what's going on?
Your Lawyer Should Not Pressure You
You should be able to figure out during your initial consultation if the lawyer is going to pressure you. For instance, did they want you to sign a contract before you even had the chance to consult with them and speak to them about your case?
It is essential that you hire an attorney that is going to respect you and your wishes. This means you want to hire a law firm that is willing to take your case to court if you do not get offered the proper settlement amount. Some law firms do not even prepare a case for trial because they will try to pressure you into taking a settlement even if that is not what you wish to do.
Make sure you ask the attorney if they have trial experience and if they are willing to do whatever it takes to help you receive the compensation that you are owed.
Your Attorney Should Encourage You To Seek Medical Care
When you are involved in a Personal Injury Accident it is vital for your wellbeing and your claim to get the help of a doctor as soon as possible after the accident takes place.
Having your injuries recorded by a medical professional will help strengthen your case. Your attorney should be encouraging you to receive therapy for as long as you need to. If they are rushing you to finish before the doctor has released you, or advising you not to go at all, this is a huge red flag and you should definitely talk to a different lawyer.
Attorneys need to be prepared for injury treatment to take some time. Especially if the accident was serious. They should be patient and willing to wait until you're totally healed before rushing into filing a demand letter.
The quicker you seek medical assistance, the quicker you can begin your road to recovery. It will be much easier for your lawyer to present a claim for compensation if you got medical help in a timely manner.
