The attributes that distinguish a good personal injury lawyer include trial experience, knowledge of the law, and compassion.
You must retain a fierce advocate who will diligently and expeditiously advance your case in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
Although the majority of lawsuits settle prior to trial, there is no guarantee that your case will. Recent developments in legal principles and the statutory provisions governing personal injury actions have made it more challenging for Plaintiffs to be compensated for their losses. For that reason, it is imperative that your lawyer be prepared to take your case to trial in the event that you do not reach a negotiated settlement out of court.
Retaining a law firm with trial experience ensures that your case will be well prepared for trial in the event that the parties do not reach resolution at mediation or pre-trial.
Your lawyer’s trial experience will play a vital role in shaping litigation strategy from the very beginning of the lawsuit. Your lawyer’s trial experience will also allow for a reliable and accurate assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your case.
Knowledge of the law:
The legal principles and legislative framework governing personal injury lawsuits are constantly evolving. The law is always in flux and, as such, the assessment of legal issues in your case (i.e. liability and damages) may also change throughout the course of your lawsuit. Your lawyer must be knowledgeable and informed of any changes in the law, and the extent to which these changes impact your case. Your lawyer’s recommendations and advice must be reasoned, principled and grounded in legal principle. It is important that your lawyer effectively communicates to you the rationale underlying their legal advice and recommendations.
Retaining a law firm during one of the most difficult times in your life can be an overwhelming process. You want to retain a lawyer who is passionate about the practice of personal injury law, and also empathetic and dedicated to providing you and your family with access to justice. A trusted lawyer-client relationship can only develop with respect, open communication and understanding. Your lawyer’s compassion and understanding of your injuries, as well as the impact of your injuries on everyday life is critical to the development of the lawyer-client relationship and to the advancement of your case.
