What should you look for in a Staten Island personal injury attorney?
The hours following a personal injury accident are crucial. Once you or your family member has received immediate medical treatment, your next step should be to seek legal representation — before you talk to the insurance company. There are hundreds of lawyers in and around Staten Island who advertise their personal injury services. First and foremost, look for a law firm whose focus is in personal injury: they will understand issues of liability and evidence and have the resources and experience required to build a solid case on your behalf. Next, call to get more information about the firm and the attorneys by asking questions including:
- Do you offer a free consultation? Many law firms, including Bisogno & Meyerson, LLP, allow you to schedule a free consultation so you can meet the attorney and have your case evaluated. This is a good opportunity to ask questions and assess your comfort level with the lawyer.
- Have you handled personal injury cases similar to mine before? While no two cases are identical, it may be helpful (and comforting to you) to know that your lawyer has experience with a certain type of case, such as an accident that occurred at an amusement park or at a construction site. And whether you are seeking help with a truck accident on the SIE or a car crash on the BQE, having a Staten Island or Brooklyn attorney who knows the lay of the land is often a plus.
- Are you willing to take my case to trial if necessary? Not only should your Staten Island personal injury lawyer be willing to litigate, if that is in your best interest, he or she should have trial experience and a track record of success.
- Will you keep me informed? This is your case. Your attorney should be responsive to your needs and keep you updated on developments. Not only is it good legal practice, it is good client service.
