Getting the best free legal advice , in my experience as a personal injury lawyer in British Columbia fielding thousands of injury calls, is one of the top personal injury lawyer requests from potential clients. Choosing your best personal injury lawyer however is much more than just getting some free legal advice. In this article I will focus on the lawyer’s experience and understanding of the type of injury suffered by the injury claimant as one factor in choosing a personal injury lawyer. Brain injury requires a different approach than whiplash or soft tissue injury or spinal fractures. When it come to prosecuting an injury case find a lawyer that has had experience and understanding in your type of injury. In British Columbia a number of relevant factors are considered when determining the reasonableness of a legal fee one of which is experience and skill of the personal injury lawyer. Ask the lawyer that you are calling whether he or she has dealt with your type of injury. If you hire a lawyer in your community that does not have experience in your type of injury it may be reasonable for the lawyer to charge you for the extra costs of consulting with experts about your injury.
I have assisted injury claimants suffering brain injury, spinal cord and nerve damage,soft tissue injury,chronic pain syndrome, vestibular disorders, hearing loss, tempomandibular joint dysfunction, thoracic outlet syndrome, vascular disorders, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome chronic, traumatic tenosynovitis, fractures of the skull, spine, pelvis and limbs, complex regional pain syndrome, punctured and ruptured organs, chronic bowel and urinary obstruction, degloving of limbs, burns and scarring, damage to joints and ligaments, aggravation of pre-existing back and neck conditions, aggravation of pre-existing congenital defects and heart conditions, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety attacks, post concussion disorder, post-traumatic depression, and many other types of injuries and I know how hard it is to prove rarely seen conditions.
Choose an experienced lawyer that you can trust and work with and make sure they understand your injury. Posted by Mr. Renn A. Holness
