What are You Looking For in a Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer ?
What exactly should you be looking for in a Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer ?
Are there certain attributes that some possess which others don't ?
OK. Lets see if we can put together a list.
Experience is a given - Make sure that the lawyer you hire to handle your ICBC injury claim has been around the block before. Find out if he/she has handled similar cases previously.
Past Results are an indicator of what the future holds - Ask the lawyer you're speaking with what their trial record consists of. Have they taken a case similar to yours to trial previously? How did they make out ?
Willingness to go to trial. - You need to determine how often the lawyer you're talking to takes cases to trial. While your case may very well be settled, you need to ensure that your lawyer will take your case to trial should the need arrise.
Ability to communicate is crucial. The ability to confide in and express yourself to your legal representative is crucial. Is the lawyer you are meeting with a person you can talk to openly ? Do they have the ability to express themselves in a manner you can understand ?
Empathy ( the sleeper). Your journey through the ICBC claims process is going to be an emotionally challenging one. There are going to be bumps along the way. So ask yourself, is the lawyer you are discussing your case with the type of person who will be able to meet your emotional needs throughout this process ? Does he/she appear to be a good listener and the type of person who honestly cares about your situation?
Alright, there you go. The attributes I've outlined above are just a taste of the type of things you need to look for prior to hiring a personal injury lawyer to handle your ICBC injury claim. Beware, if the lawyer you are speaking with lacks any of these essential ingredients, you could be in for a very rough ride.
