When you have sustained a whiplash injury, finding the right personal injury lawyer in Vaughan is very important. It’s important to have someone representing you who has a good knowledge of the law, but you also need an attorney who can apply it to your personal situation and understand the impact of your injuries on your everyday life and ability to work or go to school.
Find a Personal Injury Lawyer in Vaughan
There are a things you can do to find a lawyer to represent you if you have suffered a whiplash injury.
- Ask Family Members and Friends for a Referral
If someone you know has had a positive experience with a lawyer, you may have the same type of relationship, too. It’s worthwhile to make an appointment for a consultation to see whether you can work together.
- Go Online to Find a Personal Injury Lawyer with Experience in this Area
Checking out lawyers online is another effective method to find someone to represent you. Make a point of looking for lawyers who work for large and small firms to get a feel for who you might feel comfortable with.
- Book a Consultation
When you find a few lawyers you are particularly interested in, book a consultation to meet with each one of them. Before making an appointment, confirm that they offer an initial consultation at no charge and if the appointment set for a specific time (30 minutes). Ask what happens if you run over that amount of time – will you be billed at the lawyer’s regular rate?
- Prepare a list of questions for each lawyer you are considering.
If you ask the same questions to each person, it makes for a level playing field. You can compare answers to choose the lawyer you feel would advocate most effectively on your behalf.
Look for someone who can give you concrete examples of what they will do to represent you as your lawyer in a whiplash case. If they don’t volunteer examples, ask for them.
Ask about how the lawyer’s fee and payment structure works. If the lawyer only gets paid a fee on winning a case, make a point of asking how disbursements (expenses the lawyer incurs on your behalf are dealt with).
