When the Personal Injury Lawyer isn’t Working for You
There are a variety of reasons why someone who’s suffering a personal injury becomes disenchanted with their representation. Some lawyers refuse to handle certain aspects of a personal injury case, while others don’t have the time to sit down with their clients themselves. The following are just a couple of reasons why it might be time to move on from your current personal injury attorney:
They won’t litigate
Let’s face it; litigation is hard work. It’s often faster and less expensive to avoid the courtroom for a personal injury case. That’s why some personal injury lawyers just don’t do it. These are the lawyers who might recommend that their client take the first offer on the table, regardless of whether or not it’s a good deal for that client. Working with a lawyer who refuses to go to court can be more harmful than you think, because insurance companies know them. Claims will be settled to avoid litigation, through Lane’s experience as a litigator, he knows how insurance companies work. He knows that insurance companies know which lawyers litigate and which ones don’t. These lawyers settle claims to avoid litigation, even when it’s not in the best interests of the client.
Lack of communication
When someone is injured in a vehicle accident, pedestrian accident, or another type of personal injury case, the last thing they want is to be shuffled around by their lawyer’s office. That often happens with large law firms who hire law clerks and managers to handle their caseloads. Lane used to sue attorneys for a living when he practiced law in Southern California, so he knows the importance of communication. He personally works with every client starting with the free consultation all the way through the end of their case.
Lane knows that clients would prefer to work with the lawyer they hired as opposed to a case manager. He is there to answer all your questions, ask the right questions, and explain all the options, so his clients know what to expect at all times.
