Let’s say you drive a little Chevy Aveo. Now let’s say that the guy coming the other way, who by the way is going to cross the center line, is driving a big, giant 4 x 4 truck. When he crosses that center line the competition begins… Just exactly who do you think is going to win this one?
Whether You Were in the Truck or the Car, You’re Going to Need a Lawyer
Provided you survived the incident, you’re going to need a lawyer whether you were driving that poor little Chevy or the big fat truck. Both vehicles will undoubtedly be damaged, if not totaled. The inhabitants of both vehicles could end up with no injuries, minor injuries, severe injuries or even dead. A good lawyer is going to be needed, for each side. Will your insurance company, provided you have one, be prepared to go to bat for you in court with a lawyer? Even if they are, should you rely on their lawyer or should you possibly start checking around for a lawyer of your own? After all, the insurance company’s lawyer works for the insurance company… Not for you.
Finding a Lawyer Who Has Your Best Interests at Heart
You want a lawyer that is concerned with you and your needs. And, whereas a high priced lawyer may be able to make a case out of nothing we can’t all afford those types of lawyers. A relatively good rule of thumb is to check out some lawyers online. By reading the non biased reviews that you can find over the Internet, you should be able to make an intelligent, informed decision about what kind of lawyer you need and which lawyer will perform, in the best manner concerning your case. If money is an object, you can always shop around for a lawyer that works on a contingency basis. These lawyers will have no problem telling you whether or not they feel you have a case that could be won in court, because if you don’t win your case, they don’t get paid.
Asking around is another good way to find a lawyer, because word-of-mouth is a powerful tool. Of course, watch it just be your luck that no one with whom you work or associate with has ever needed a personal injury lawyer. Wouldn’t that just figure?
