Everyone knows the lawyer’s role in a personal injury or wrongful death case. However, it is important to remember that the client can play an important role in maximizing the success of the case. When I meet with my client, I will explain to them how they can make me a better attorney on their case.
Here are a few ways my clients help me succeed:
1. Tell me EVERYTHING about your case. Tell me the good and the bad. If I don’t know about the weakness of your case (and almost every case has some weakness) than I can’t deal with it. Remember, I am your lawyer and what you tell me is privileged.
2. Keep me up to date on your case. Let me know how your injury is progressing, medical treatment is proceeding, etc. I need to know what is going on. A simple email is often enough to keep me up-to-date.
3. Be organized for our meetings. Keep notes to discuss issues, new information, witnesses, etc.
4. LISTEN TO ME. You hired me for a reason. Listen to my advice. You will probably have only one lawsuit in your life and I have had thousands. Take advantage of my experience. We are on the same side, and I will do everything I can for you.
If you have any questions about a serious injury case, you may have feel free to give me a call. We work on cases throughout Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia.
