You are the most important factor in your personal injury case

Of course, working with a skilled, experienced lawyer is critical to success in a motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice or other personal injury claim. And yes, it is important to gather all of the detailed information you can to bolster your case.

But the most important factor in a personal injury claim – one that many people ignore even though it is obvious – is the plaintiff.

YOU are the most important factor in your case. Find out more.

Why Is the Plaintiff So Important in Personal Injury Claims?

According to an article in pennrecord, an online Pennsylvania legal news service, legal counsel for a plaintiff injured in a car accident had to withdraw from representing the client in the personal injury claim that stemmed from the accident. The primary reason: the client was completely unresponsive.

Although the lawyer is extremely important, there is nothing even the best attorney can do if the client is disengaged in this way. The attorney represents the client, but it is the client’s case, the client’s interests. The client is the one with the information and the preferences for how things should be handled. There is no way to bring a successful claim without at least a minimum of involvement from the client.

What Can You Do to Be a Winning Client?

There are a number of things you can do to improve your successful working relationship with your attorney:

  • Communicate with your lawyer: Communication with your lawyer is by far the most important thing you can do. This means telling your attorney everything you know so there are no surprises, returning your lawyer’s phone calls and answering your attorney’s questions as completely and accurately as possible.
  • Obtain all the information you can: At the scene of the accident or other personal injury incident, gather all the information you can. Details about the incident, contact information for witnesses, timing and other details are all potentially important in your case.
  • Come prepared: Whether you are heading into the courtroom for a hearing or meeting at your lawyer’s office, it is critical to come prepared with any documents or information that will be needed.

By following these steps, you can drastically increase the efficiency of the legal process and the likelihood of success in your case, which could mean substantial financial compensation.
