When looking for a Chicago Personal Injury attorney to represent you or a loved one after an injury or accident it is critical that you take this decision seriously. An attorney who understands what you are struggling with every day and that uses technology to expedite and track your case in the best possible way can work to your advantage if or when the time comes to go to trial.
The follow characteristics in an attorney are indications that they will be easy to work with and sympathetic of your hardship.
They listen. If your attorney talks over you, and you can’t get a word in, how are they supposed to hear what you’re dealing with? A lawyer who will take the time to listen to you, giving ample time in meetings or phone calls, tells you that they are listening.
They ask questions. Investigation is a big part of being a lawyer. Getting to the bottom of an accident, to determine who was at fault, and how much the client should be awarded. If your attorney isn’t asking you questions, how do you know they have all the information they need to properly represent you?
They are punctual and private. Do they show up in time? Are your meetings held in comfortable places where you can talk in private? If your attorney appears at your door, or in their office 20 minutes late, how do you know they won’t do that in court? Also consider your privacy, this is a hard time of your life. Personal information and case details should be discussed in a confidential environment and treated with respect. Your ability to rely on and trust your attorney is critical to your recovery and ability to seek damages for your injuries. Not to mention your peace of mind.
