We’ve been getting to know Dan Christensen of DC Law and this morning we are going to Law 101 class. Dan helped answer some basic questions people sometimes have about contacting a lawyer.
What are some of the reasons that someone should call an attorney in a potential personal injury case?
When people get hurt or get in a wreck a lot of times people don’t know whether to call a lawyer or not. Sometimes they are embarrassed and they’re also concerned that it might cost them some money. I tell people anytime you get hurt and it’s not your fault you absolutely should call an attorney especially one that specializes in injury work. It doesn’t cost a thing and that way they can at least find out if they have a claim and a lawyer will let them know that they can rest assured knowing that they looked into it.
What should people be looking for when people go into the market for a person injury attorney?
I think there are three main things people need to look for and the first is expertise. They need to make sure they are hiring a lawyer that does personal injury and that’s all they do and someone who is board certified in personal injury trial law like DC Law. I encourage people to not go to the same lawyer who did your divorce or your taxes or a will. You want to go to someone who only does injury law full time. Another thing is finding someone who will give you the personal attention you deserve. You don’t want to go to a large firm that will be dealing with thousands of claims. Lastly you want to find a lawyer that has the financial resources to take on any defendant. Some lawyers may not be able to take on a multi-billion dollar insurance company.
