I have been a personal injury lawyer in Vancouver since 1995 and have dealt with personal injury claims as far back as 1992, which gives me a unique perspective on the question of finding a personal injury lawyer. I have fielded calls in Vancouver over the years from personal injury claimants and I have learned that the hardest part of getting a lawyer is first finding the lawyer. I have discussed the first steps to finding a personal injury lawyer , where to look, and would like to now focus on some of the qualities to look for in a Vancouver personal injury lawyer.
The traits that make up a good personal injury lawyer are often the same traits that make a good personal injury client. Honesty, sincerity and a tough work ethic. This is why choosing a personal injury lawyer is usually a very personal decision and some clients will prefer one lawyer over another.
Vancouver offers many benefits to personal injury lawyers helping claimants so it is not surprising that most of the lawyers in British Columbia work in the Lower Mainland area. This unfortunately makes finding a personal injury lawyer even more difficult. Here are a few tips to help you find a good personal injury lawyer in Vancouver:
- Make sure your lawyer has courtroom experience representing injury claimants and if not is being guided by a more senior lawyer.
- Make sure the potential lawyer has experience dealing with the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, ICBC, injury claims.
- Make sure, if the personal injury lawyer is close to the Vancouver courthouse, the lawyer does not have additional charges to file documents in the court registry.
I have had many clients tell me that they have had to speak to several lawyers before finding my personal injury law firm. Find a personal injury lawyer that is the right fit for you and your injury claim. Posted by Mr. Renn A. Holness
