I exclusively focus on car accident cases. I believe that an attorney should add value to your case, not just evaluate the value of your case. One of the most important ways an attorney can add value is in minimizing the time to completion. With the right attorney, your case can take half the time or even one-third the time it would otherwise take.
This means a case that would have otherwise taken 18 months can be, and should be, finished in 6 months to 9 months.
In personal injury cases, your attorney needs to understand medical treatments. He needs to be both a doctor and a laywer at once. He also needs to understand insurance protocols. He should be available to you at all times, and he shouldn't be afraid to advise you as to the necessary course of action. Most clients are surprised to find out that attorneys are afraid of advising their clients for fear of being second guessed later on.
There are very few attorneys who understand back injuries the way doctors do...and there are fewer attorneys who will take the trouble to come to your appointments so that the can know exactly what's going on with your case every step fo the way. AS such, most attorneys are unable to give advice or know what course of action might be helpful. Your attorney needs to have the wisdom to turn hindsight into foresight and have no reservations about being second guessed.
Working closely together, we can remove unnecessary treatments that only hinder your cases' financial value and also unnecessarily lengthen the time to completion.
Removing unnecessary treatments has the secondary benefit of minimizing insurance defense tactics and damage a case's credibility.
The competitive advantage gained in working with me are speed to completion as well as higher net gains from few/if any wasted treatments. I have finished surgery cases within 5 months. Though the time to completion cannot be guaranteed and will vary from person to person, it can be expedited in every single case...and it can be expedited tremendously.
Lastly, in accelerating cases, we are often able to avoid complications. When an injury case takes two or three years...then the window is left open for complications to occur. Perhaps the client gets into another car accident and then each of the two insurance companies starts pointing the finger at the other accident. Other times, you spend time with the adjuster assigned to the file, updating them on the case, building a relationship, letting them know what's going on, and how the treatments are evolving...and in the two to three year period...the adjuster either quits, gets fired, or promoted. Minimizing the time to completion allows us to work with one adjuster from beginning to end.
You're always up against time in injury cases. By understanding treatments, having providers already in place that can quickly help heal a client, and avoiding unnecessary treatments, you as an attorney can help your client minimize the disruption to their life and maximize the amount of money they obtain.
This is the importance of having a hands on attorney. I have attended literally hundreds of doctor appointments with my clients over the years and had doctors explain to me the treatments, and over some years, I've learned all about neck and lower back injuries (which are the vast majority of injuries in car accident cases). Hence, I am now able to help the case move along at much higher speeds, tell clients the proper course of action to take, and also provide value in terms of increased recovery. I'm the only attorney I know that attends every medical appointment with his clients.
