If you’ve recently suffered a car accident or other personal injury, you’ll want to seek the advice of an injury lawyer. However, making sure you are hiring the best lawyer for your needs is not always easy. Make sure you know when you may have chosen the wrong attorney to handle your case by reading over this article.
A law firm may state that they handle a wide variety of personal injury cases, but that does not necessarily mean they specialize in these practice areas. Find out if the attorney that will be working with you has experience in providing legal representation for your type of case, whether that is a car accident, slip and fall, or workplace injury. In the event your lawyer has not handled many of these types of cases in the past, it may be time to consider switching firms.
Another sign that it’s time to choose a different lawyer is poor communication. For example, a good lawyer should keep you informed on the details of your case, return phone calls or emails, and notify you of the best time that they can be reached. It is also important that your lawyer communicates whether or not any other individuals will be working on your case, such as other attorneys or paralegals within the firm.
Some lawyers may have a different end result in mind when it comes to the final settlement. For this reason, you may want to consult with a different lawyer if you do not like how your current representative is approaching your case.
Don’t let your current lawyer’s inexperience or poor communication habits interfere with the outcome of your case. Contact D'Agostino & Associates in Staten Island at (888) 860-5787 for more information on switching to one of our personal injury lawyers.Leave a comment »
