Have You Been Injured in a Bike Accident? Learn How to Choose the Right Attorney to Represent You
If you are hit by a car while riding a bike you can suffer from catastrophic injuries. While wearing helmets and other safety gear can reduce the risk of serious injuries, they cannot protect a person entirely. If you have been injured in a bike accident then we urge you to contact Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas at 909-982-0707 right away for a free legal consultation.
As you consider your option to move forward with a personal injury case, we know you have options and that you may not be experienced in choosing an attorney. Read on to learn some of the most important criteria to consider when choosing the best counsel.
You need an attorney with experience
First and foremost, you need an attorney that is both experienced in the law and experienced with bike accidents in particular. A lawyer who’s worked with these cases will know the federal and state laws that apply to your case, and they will know what factors should be considered regarding what caused the accident. For example, if you were hit by a car, there may be additional at-fault parties, such as the city for having improper signage. When you choose Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas, you are choosing a strong and experienced advocate.
You should choose an attorney who has excellent case results
You should first start by asking any attorney you are considering how many bicycle accident cases they have handled. Ask them how many they’ve taken to court, how many they have settled out of court, and the total value of the verdicts / settlements they have gotten for past clients. This is essential because you are looking for an attorney that has trial experience. Otherwise, they may work to settle every case they have. While it is often the best option to settle a case, it is not always the best option. You want an attorney who will do what is best for your case – not what is best for them.
Work with an attorney that has resources
If you choose an attorney without financial resources, then you are not likely to get the best possible service. Remember that expert witnesses are often needed to win a case, and they can cost in excess of $1,000 each day. Unless you want to pay these experts upfront, you need an attorney who has the resources to truly invest in your case.
Choose an attorney you believe in
Your case is unique. Your needs are unique. You want to work with an attorney who takes your specific needs into consideration and does not offer a cookie cutter approach to your case. You need an attorney who will be available to you and who will not pass your case on to a paralegal. You can expect all this and more when you choose Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas as your personal injury attorney. Now is the time to call 909-982-0707 for a free legal consultation.
