Hiring the best injury lawyer in Calgary can be a daunting task. Whether you have been in a car accident or suffered a personal injury from someone else, you want the best person to represent you in court.
Anyone can look professional and say the right things, but how do you really know who’s the best? This four-step approach can help you in the long run.
Four Steps To Get The Best Injury Lawyer In Calgary For You
1) List Your Criteria Of What You Want From Your Injury Lawyer
It is crucial to establish what you want from your Calgary injury lawyer firstly. Are you after experience, leadership, or a reliable reputation? What kind of approach do you want your lawyer to take? Figure out what is important to you. From there, list down criteria that you wish to your lawyer to match so you have a firm base in which you can start your search.
2) Make A Shortlist Of Your Favorites
There are a few ways in which you can shortlist to find your favorite. Thanks to Google, you can get in-depth information on all the lawyers in your area. Do your research, read reviews and see what people say about their experiences. But the best is to ask family or friends about lawyers they know and worked with, as you’ll get a firsthand account. With this list of lawyers, see who matches with your criteria, and slowly eliminate the ones that don’t. You’ll then have your shortlist.
3) Discuss Your Case, Fees & Contracts One-On-One
Contact each of those on your shortlist and schedule a meeting with them. With some one-on-one time, you will be able to discuss all the essentials of your case, the fees (everything from what they charge to if they can help with legal aid) and the contract agreement. Ask all the questions you have on your mind, but most importantly, see what the injury lawyers can offer you in terms of matching your criteria (or bettering it). Visit each lawyer on your shortlist, so you know what to expect from them.
4) Review The Contract & Terms
With all your interviews conducted, you will be able to review all the contracts that have been offered to you. Take your time with your decision, and call back your favorite lawyers if you want to reaffirm specific details about your case, their approach and if you can get the compensation you want. Go over it a thousand times before deciding on which injury lawyer you want to hire.
