How Do I Choose a Personal Injury Attorney for my Car Accident Case?
The field of personal injury law in Chicago is a competitive one and successful attorneys are competing for your case. You do not necessarily want the car accident attorney with the biggest billboard on the Stevenson or the Dan Ryan, but you do want an experienced attorney who will maximize your recovery, value your input and communicate effectively with you. You should definitely consult with the firm you want to retain by setting up a meeting with them. By meeting with at least one attorney from the firm, you will get a feel for the communication style of the firm. Our clients tell us that they appreciate that we keep in touch with them regarding the status of their cases. We are happy to send you an email, a letter or give you a phone call regarding your case. We know from years of experience as personal injury attorneys that no clients want to be left out! You do not want to be made to feel like a nuisance or that your opinion does not matter because it does! It is your case and we appreciate our clients! The attorney's job is to represent you and to communicate with you regarding the status.
Follow your intuition in making your decision. Gather information from the firms you interview to help you decide. You should feel welcome to take notes and ask questions during the interview. Some questions to ask include the following:
- How long does the attorney expect the case to take to be resolved?
- Will the attorney obtain your medical records?
- Will the attorney try to settle the case before filing a lawsuit?
- Which attorney will be working on the case?
- How will the outstanding medical bills affect the settlement?
- How much experience does the attorney have at trial?
As your case proceeds, you may have questions about liens, interrogatories, depositions, experts and outstanding bills. It is important that the law firm you retain is available to brief you on these issues. At Rubin, Machado & Rosenblum, Ltd., we have attorneys and staff who are compassionate and available to clearly explain to you the litigation process and what to expect. Not only that, but we also get great results for our clients! We want you to be informed of your options regarding our attorney colleagues in the City of Chicago, but we are confident that you will choose us to represent you! It is absolutely our pleasure to be of assistance to you. Please contact us today to set up an appointment to discuss your car accident case.
