Finding the Correct Attorney for Your Case
on a day to day basis will not even think about calling a personal injury
attorney. However, when the unexpected occurs and you don’t know what to do it
is best to contact an attorney with the expertise to help manage the situation.
Eventually that is what I had to do after being sideswiped by a motor vehicle
while I was riding my motorcycle.
The story begins the day after I had been in the collision I wrote about above. I was looking for compensation for being sideswiped by a hit-and-run style driver. However, whenever I attempted to get police reports, surveillance footage or any general information about the person who hit me and drove off, I was getting stonewalled. Although I had insurance, I was still responsible for paying the copays to each of my medical visits. Likewise, I was responsible for the cost of the tow as well as the deductible for my motorcycle insurance. Unless they found the driver and deemed him responsible, I was out of luck.
I decided that I needed assistance and tried to search for a lawyer who could help me. Most civil lawyers specialize in one field or another. I was unaware of this until I began searching for an attorney. I called lawyer after lawyer blindly in an attempt to find an attorney who would take my case. Eventually I was made aware that there was a specialized field of law which employed investigative attorneys. These were attorneys who could invoke their certifications to obtain information necessary to completing investigations quickly. Quickly is the key term here since eventually the police would most likely have been able to solve the case, just not quick enough for my liking.
After I realized this, I was able to specify my search parameters. In a hypothetical example what I was searching for was lawyers to help with medical cases, but I should have been searching more specifically for any medical malpractice attorney fort lauderdale fl. In this example you can see that I chose the specialty as well has the location in which I would like to find him. Reading this here it may seem like commonsense however when you are living it in the moment, ignorant to what you really need, it may be more difficult than it seems to find what you’re looking for.
After putting in my due diligence I was able to come in contact with a lawyer who could actually perform the duties necessary to solve the case and prove that the offender was responsible. Eventually not only was the lawyer able to locate and prove the person guilty he was able to ensure that the responsibility of debt was due to the hit and run driver. If only I had known at the beginning what to look for then perhaps, I could have saved myself time and headaches in the long run. Therefore, I hope that my experience written here can help you or someone you know in the future.
