Remember Your Third Grade Teacher Asking, "Did You Do Your Homework?"
Although you are no longer in 3rd grade, this question can still be asked of you. In a time where information is everywhere regarding attorneys, how do you know who is right for you? Is it good enough to just listen to the guy on TV who spoke to you during a commercial while you were listening to the morning weather report getting ready to take the kids to school? Or what about the guy your neighbor told you about who got him "quick cash" on his case and all he had to do was just wait on the check?
The fact of the matter is that you still have to "do your homework" when choosing the right attorney for your case. In many instances, these cases can last a long time. This means that the attorney you signed up with way back at the start of your case is the same person who will probably end the case with you, whenever that is.
Here are 3 tips you can use when trying to find the best attorney for your case
1. How much helpful information does the attorney have available for you to review...and we mean more than just a "free consultation?" As of right now you are reading information which can be used to help you make the best decision for your case. Not only is the information right here on the web for you to review, you can refer back to it (and information on this site's other pages) at your own convenience. Does the attorney you are thinking about hiring have other information which will allow you to, "do your homework?"
2. Who will be handling my case? This is a very important question because some people are not ok with a paralegal or legal secretary doing all the work on their case. To them, when they sign a contract with an attorney, they want the attorney to be the one who handles their matter. Other people are fine with a legal secretary handling their case. The question for you is what do you prefer? The answer to this question will allow you to, "do your homework" regarding whether you should hire law firm X
3. What type of personality does the attorney display? This is an often overlooked tip. Look at it this way...we have already stated above that injury cases, and even domestic relations cases, can last a while. Do you want to be in a "long-term" relationship with someone who you clash with? For example, are you the type of person who likes to be on time with everything, or the type of person who needs their "hand held" along the process? If you are and your attorney does not work well with these types of people are you settling yourself up for a "strained" relationship? Again, knowing the answer to this question will allow you to, "do your homework."

An Important Tip If You Are Dealing With An Insurance Company Without An Attorney
Insurance companies like to prey on the fact that most people who are injured in an auto collision do not know too much about the claims process. As a result, the adjuster in many instances will make it sound as if you must comply with the adjuster's every demand. For example, many adjusters will send you medical release authorization forms and strongly suggest that you give them a recorded statement. Because many people do not know the law in this area, they feel pressured into complying.
Well the truth of the matter is that if you are injured in an accident and are making a claim against the person's insurance company who caused your injuries, you do not have to sign any medical authorization forms or agree to give a recorded statement "pre-suit." Even though this is the case, because of unfamiliarity of the law, many people comply with the adjuster's request. Next thing you know the other guy's insurance company is fishing into your medical history, and possibly into information that is irrelevant to your current case. Also, because of your agreement to a recorded statement, the adjuster has nailed down your testimony as to how the accident happened and will be able to use this statement against you in the future if your statement changes.
If you are faced with this situation, and you are not sure what you should do, contact your legal professional at once for more information.

Are There Some Common Injury Words I Should Know?
If you are attempting to represent yourself in your own injury case there are some words you need to make sure that you are familiar with. If you have already started to deal with an insurance adjuster the adjuster is probably already using words in which you may not really understand. If this is the case, do not get discouraged. You must remember that these adjusters do this type of work for a living and have a huge head start. This is why most people hire an attorney...so they will not have to deal with some of these things.
But regardless, we have created a list of a few words which are used a lot in Maryland injury cases. Please remember that the list we have created is not exhaustive. What we mean is that there are many many other key injury words used along the way in this process. This list can be used to give you a starting point in your journey. Click Here For The List!
