Working With Your Accident and Injury Lawyer



You"ll have to work with and make decisions with your attorney as your case progresses. For instance, you’ll have to provide information to help your attorney prove liability in your case. You’ll have to make decisions about alternatives to litigation like mediation and binding arbitration.


You'll also have to decide whether and when to settle your case. Although an attorney represents you, and the attorney is the expert on personal injury law, it is your right to make a final decision as to whether or not to accept any settlement offers from the opposing party. However, most people don’t have the background, experience or knowledge necessary to make a good decision about that issue on their own—that’s why it’s so important that you choose your personal injury lawyer carefully. You want to be able to trust and rely on the advice you receive from your attorney.
