The Qualities of a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

Consideration has been given for the editing and publishing of this post

When people are confronted with personal injury for themselves or for family members, they want a lawyer who gives them the legal support they need to get on with their lives. The way to achieve this is to find the best personal injury lawyers in Toronto. Lawyers who specialize in personal injury such as the lawyers at HSH Personal Injury Law will have in-depth knowledge of personal injury law and years of experience in the field. Insurance companies also know the lawyers in their region, and their success rates. This can make a difference whether the insurance company wants to take the risk of going to court.

The Client Needs to Feel Confident

Good lawyers are good communicators. They keep their clients in the loop and establish a good lawyer-client relationship. Clients must feel comfortable asking questions and must get clear answers in order to maintain trust in their lawyer.

Specialization

Clients not only need a lawyer who specializes in personal injury cases, but also in other aspects of personal injury law. Many clients want to take a settlement offer and need to trust their lawyer to know if an offer is fair or not. The lawyer needs to be willing and able to take the case to court if necessary. If the insurance company sees that the lawyer has never tried a case in court, it may keep any settlement very low in the hope the lawyer will lose at trial.

Success Is Key

Clients have the right to know if the personal injury lawyer they are considering hiring has a good success rate in his or her previous cases. They will not only want to know how many cases were won, but also how much compensation the lawyer was able to secure. Prospective clients may also ask to speak to the lawyer’s previous clients or look online for testimonials and comments about the lawyer in question.

Tenaciousness

In order to feel confident, clients need to see that their lawyer will fight for them. Insurance companies generally keep records of lawyers who have won major settlements in court and are more likely to provide a higher settlement to avoid going to court against those lawyers.

Questions a Client May Ask

• How much time will the lawyer actually spend on my case?
• Who will handle my case? Will it be handed over to paralegals?
• Does the office have adequate support staff?
• How will my lawyer communicate with me?
• Does the law office take every case or only ones it feels it can win?

In order for lawyers to attract and keep good personal injury cases, clients need to feel valued by their lawyer and have confidence and trust in his or her abilities. Clients can immediately feel as if they are just another case or if their problems are being handled with integrity and compassion. When anyone is facing personal injury, his or her life is disrupted, maybe forever. They may not be able to think clearly and need to rely on their lawyer to organize the way forward. To give the client peace of mind at this time is a great gift, and to win a fair and sizable settlement or to win in court is the best beginning of their life after personal injury.
