What Type of Personal Injury Lawyer are you Looking for ?
If you've been injured in a car accident you may be in the midst of an ICBC claim.
And you may be looking for a lawyer who can guide you through that process.
But what type of a lawyer are you looking for ?
If you surf the internet you'll find a virtual tidal wave of suggestions. And after awhile this information will start to repeat itself ; experienced, caring, strong trial record, etc.. You might say all the websites, article and blog posts seem to contain the same shopping list of suggestions.
Don't misunderstand me. I'm not saying that the attributes described in many of these articles aren't things you should look for in a personal lawyer if you have an ICBC injury claim. Far from it. The usual shopping list sets out a series of skills and "notches on the belt" that are quite necessary.
But how you distinguish one personal injury lawyer from the next ?
Let me make a suggestion.
Look for a lawyer who can commit to telling you THE COLD HARD TRUTH.
Look for a lawyer who is prepared to tell you what you NEED to hear. Which isn't always the same as what you WANT to hear.
A good personal injury lawyer is kind of like a good parent. There are times when a lawyer who is truly commited to their client need to "lay it out straight" even if it's going to result in tears.
The truthy is that it's tough to tell another person something that you know isn't going to be well received. It's much easier to try and avoid these difficult conversations.
But a good personal injury lawyer can't be shy about "telling it like it is." That's just the way it has to be. If that personal injury lawyer is looking out for his client's best interests that is !
