Choosing the Best Personal Injury Lawyer for You

Choosing a lawyer to handle a personal injury claim is the most critical factor to successful recovery. Difficult situations like denied insurance claims or government benefits, injury in motor vehicle accidents, family legal problems or professional licensing issues may come, and potentially become life changing. A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your rights and work to access insurance coverage on your behalf.

Considerations Before Choosing a Personal Injury Lawyer

All cases are different, even when there are similarities. When contacting a lawyer, here is a list of qualities to look for.

  1. Provide Comfort
  • A good lawyer will take time to learn about your unique situation
  • Let you ask questions or provide concerns that you have
  • Listen to you carefully, and make you feel heard – because you are
  • Pay attention to all of the details
  • Provide enough time for a first meeting so that everyone gets a feel and level of comfort to work together
  1. Convey Familiarity with the Court System & Tribunals
  • They will explain the legal process to you in your claim
  • Explain how and how often you should expect to receive communication or can get in touch
  • Explain who your team is – as often there are other integral team members that will be involved
  • Explain what you can and should expect
  1. Dedicate Experience & Expertise
  • Sketch out an initial plan for your matter and how and when it should be revised
  • Explain how they will do the best job for you
  • May give you an estimated timeline to the resolution, but not promise a hard date
  • Will not guarantee a result at the first meeting without collecting the evidence and reviewing all of the facts
  • Will tell you the truth and tell you why you are being given a particular opinion, especially if it isn’t necessarily favourable

Most cases present some challenges, even though they may appear to be straightforward. Every case should be tailored to your needs and timeline, all the while considering the factors in your claim. You should not leave a meeting feeling confused, and if you do, you should feel like you can communicate with your lawyer and team to clarify. The lawyer you choose is about choosing a relationship that spans over months and years.
