As a company, we want nothing more than to support you the best way that we can during your personal injury case. We also want to make sure we are a good fit. There are two questions we usually ask prospective personal injury clients in order to do this:

What Is Your End Goal?

First, what do you want the most from the case? What I think most people would answer is want the most money from the case. I honestly get it, I would want that too. I’ve asked this to many other people and that’s a popular response, but there have been other answers which surprised me. One person said, “The biggest thing I would want is for other people to know that it wasn’t my fault.” Suppose you have an intersection accident. The other person claims our client wasn’t paying attention and our client says the other ran a red light. Whom are you going to believe? People want to be vindicated and for others to know it wasn’t their fault. This is important to people. Is it important to you?

Biggest Fear about Hiring an Attorney?

The 2nd question is what is your biggest fear about the idea of hiring an attorney or going forward with this case? My thought was most people would say, “The insurance company is giving me a lot less for the value of my case than it’s worth.” However, I’ve got some shocking answers and it’s not good for the lawyers. A lot of concerns from people were that their lawyer was going rip them off. Wow! That’s not us. The fact that people thought they were going get ripped off by their attorney, or their attorney wasn’t taking them seriously, or the attorney was a know-it-all was a serious concern for people.

Even though some prospective personal injury clients went through the surgery, people were fearful that the attorney would be able to dictate how the case would go. I also received responses that people were concerned about their attorney talking down to them and not treating them like an equal. These are things that are helping me understand what’s important to you as a client and injury victim. If you can email, text, or respond to our YouTube video in any way, please do so. We’re people just like you that aren’t trying to do anything other than to get you to the best result we can.

Our main focus is honesty. We always preach it. We are passionate about trying to help any injured person or family member with their case. Questions about the blog? CALL US!
