If you have been hurt in an accident in Edmonton, you might be asking yourself how and where you will start looking for a personal injury lawyer. Being an accident victim and dealing with the pain from your injuries, having to deal with finding the correct medical assistance and coping with the insurance adjusters, you will find that it can all become very overwhelming. Having a personal injury lawyer that you know you can trust to guide you through the process can make focusing on recovering much easier.

Good lawyers will have dealt with all types of injuries in the past, including yours, and they will have gained the experience to help you through the entire claims process. It is that experience that will increase the chance of them knowing exactly what they need to do to present the best possible evidence to prove your claim. This means that they will be able to get the highest possible compensation for your injuries. The best type of personal injury lawyer not only has these skills but also goes out of their way to make sure that you have access to rehabilitation resources needed to recover as best as you can from your injuries.

What is it that makes a great personal injury lawyer?

Trust – Trust is the best quality that a personal injury lawyer can have. Without trust, communication is affected, and the ability of the lawyer to represent you correctly is not possible. To be represented correctly, your lawyer needs to be able, to be frank about your injuries and how they will or have affected your life. Would you be willing to tell somebody that you did not trust your fears regarding the impact that your injuries from the accident have had on your life; most likely not. And this is very sensitive and important information. A really great personal injury lawyer will do their best to build a relationship with you that is based on trust, and you should have that inner feeling that you are actually able to count on them to have your best interest at heart, no matter what.

Compassion – You need to feel as though your lawyer understands what you are currently going through and they need to be compassionate with regards to your injuries, and how it has affected your life and the lives of your family.

A champion of your rights – You must hire someone who will be willing to go the extra mile for you and your rights. You must ask yourself if the person that you are considering hiring really does seem to care about your recovery and what will happen once the case is closed. If the answer is yes, then this is the person for you.

Good track records – You should look for a lawyer that has a proven track record. It is more than acceptable to ask lawyers to give you examples of cases similar to yours that they have directly dealt with in the past. It is also perfectly fine to ask them for references. When you have been seriously injured after an accident, it makes sense to take the time to find the right person, who will be there to do their best in getting the best results they can for you. Many cases do not even get to court and are usually settled out of court, which is why it is vital that you find a lawyer who knows how to negotiate. This is where references help.

Thorough preparation – You want to make sure that your car accident lawyer has in-depth knowledge of how to prepare a case in the most effective way possible. They should also understand how your evidence will affect the court’s decision, should your case reach that stage. The lawyer that you choose should know your medical diagnosis as well as the technical, medical terms. The best lawyer for your individual case should be able to prove that they have access to a network of rehabilitation specialists and medical experts. They will also need to be able to guide you to other professionals, like reconstruction specialists, accident investigators, accountants, tax experts, and financial planners who can assist in your case. It is imperative that you feel comfortable that your lawyer is taking note of the details needed to process your claim fast and efficiently.

Professionalism – The best Vancouver car accident lawyer has the respect of other lawyers and professionals in their line of work. This should include financial communities and medical experts. You need to do your homework to make sure that your lawyer is the one you want to handle your case.

As I previously stated, your personal injury lawyer wants to get the highest amount of compensation for you as he possibly can. Why is that? It is because your lawyer’s interest is exactly the same as yours. The more money your lawyer can get for you, the more money they will receive from the settlement.

Today I would like to visit the question of whether or not it makes a difference what type of lawyer you hire. Is it better to hire a personal injury lawyer or a general lawyer – even if one has been recommended to you? The answer is a definite “Yes.”

I firmly believe that there are five main reasons why a personal injury lawyer will be the best choice for you to receive the maximum amount possible.

1. Personal injury lawyers understand the situation that you are in; they understand the fact that you are injured and that you believe that you have the right to claim for your injuries legitimately. The fact that you do not currently feel as though you are in control is also evident to them.

You will have many questions regarding the legal process such as; how long is the process and how much can you expect to get? You might be wondering if you will be able to work or not during or after healing. You might even believe that you should seek the help of a medical expert in order to back up your claim.

There is a lot on the line and taking a chance is not an option. A lawyer will offer you help and empathize with you. A personal injury lawyer will understand what you are dealing with and be able to guide you in the right direction.

To give you an idea, I have successfully helped thousands of people win their cases, from just a few thousand to millions of dollars. When you sit down with me, you will be confident that I am here to help you and that I understand what you are going through. That is why a personal injury lawyer can assist you better with all the questions, needs, and concerns that you have regarding your claim.

2. Personal injury lawyers have the experience required to deal with insurance companies and the lawyers that they employ. The person who is responsible for the accident and their lawyers are not there to help you at all. Their main focus is to make sure that you get the minimum amount of money as a settlement. A regular lawyer may have dealt with these types of cases in the past, but a personal injury lawyer is an expert in the field.

One main point that I would like to make is this: When you hire an injury lawyer, you are also hiring the experience that they have gained with regards to all automobile accidents. They have the necessary knowledge to represent you better than anyone else can.

3. An injury lawyer has the needed skills to ensure that they properly access all the evidence at hand and get you the best possible outcome. They will know how to examine the evidence, what they should be looking for, and whether or not they need to get help from injury experts to maximize the amount you receive from your claim.

My business depends on my ability to correctly access the evidence presented to me. I have spent years studying thousands of injury cases, which have been presented to me, and I can easily access whether or not additional experts need to be brought in. Some cases are more complicated than others and require the services of accident reconstruction experts or the extraction of the information stored on the “black box” of the vehicles in question that determine the speed the vehicle was traveling at the time of or before the accident.

4. Personal injury lawyers have the funds and workforce needed to see you through the claims process. Before enlisting the help of medical or scientific experts, who charge a lot for their expertise, your personal injury lawyer will be able to decide if they are necessary to prove your claim or not. A regular lawyer might not be able to determine whether or not such experts are necessary or not.

For example, I only use experts who are qualified by the Alberta Court of Queens Beach to testify in court. You can find out all the information regarding fees and who pays for them on my website. There is also a section called “What experts should be on my team?”

5. Lawyers who work for the guilty parties insurance company know the case law, they depend on their knowledge in order to survive. Personal injury lawyers know the case law and have used it in the past to prove their cases beyond a reasonable doubt.

When you have an injury lawyer representing you, you are on an equal footing with the other parties insurance company. That is precisely what I do for all my clients. I am fully aware of and understand the law and how it works to benefit my clients as much as possible.

Should you feel as though you have a claim, I strongly suggest that you find an injury lawyer who will act in your best interest, someone who will do whatever is needed to make sure that you are properly compensated.
