After an An Accident in New Orleans, The Right Lawyer Will Help You Put the Pieces Together
A personal injury can happen to anyone at anytime, forever altering the course of their life.
The most common sources of personal injury stems from slip and fall accidents and auto collisions — which can involve other vehicles, motorcycles and or trucks. These accidents can result in personal injuries that run the gamut from benign soft-tissue injuries, to more serious fractures, broken bones, amputated limbs, spinal cord and traumatic brain accidents to the most severe scenario, a sudden and wrongful death. While personal injury is an indiscriminate misfortunate that can manifest in multiple actions, at the root of almost all of personal injury incidents are the negligent actions of another individual. The consequences from this negligence are often far-reaching, indeterminate, and will not only affect your life, but often the lives of those closest to you.
What is Needed to Help You Recover?
Physical care to aide your recovery is usually mandatory along with physical rehabilitation to help assist in recuperating your faculties to the highest possible level of their functionality. While your body is physically recovering from this difficult experience, it is not uncommon to also experience emotional and psychological trauma and occasionally, it becomes necessary to seek professional guidance to move forward and also accept what physical changes may have occurred to impact and alter the quality of life that you once knew.
As occurs with any level of injury, time is sacrificed to receive medical care and with this loss of time and your daily routine, missed work frequently happens, resulting in the loss of wages. In situations, where the permanent loss of a loved one has transpired, it can be hard to determine the loss of present and future financial support and the struggle with grief that comes with the emotional and physiological damages of a sudden death can be unbearable.
At Bloom Legal, we believe your focus should be on your health and working to regain the quality of your body and your life before your personal injury. Our focus is on our clients and helping them recover. We understand recovery from a personal injury is both a physical and financial battle. We want to help eliminate medical bills, make up for lost wages and provide an adequate compensation for life, should returning to work not be a possibility. We believe the price of a personal injury and how it affects your health and life isn’t something that should be determined by an insurance company. The attorneys at Bloom Legal are ardent about seeking justice for those that have been injured and will not stop fighting for you until that justice has been guaranteed.
Selecting the Best Injury Lawyer for Your Claim
Before you hire an lawyer you should interview them a bit. After all, you are hiring them for a service, so take some time to make sure you are hiring someone you will be satisfied with.
There are all kinds of different types of law that a lawyer may focus in—far too many to list here. There might be a lawyer with a great record in divorce court, but they don’t know anything about personal injury. If you are seeking damages for an injury, make sure you seek out lawyers with a focus in personal injury.
Many lawyers offer free phone consultations. This provides a great opportunity to ask some questions of the lawyer, to see whether they will be a good fit.
Here are some good questions to ask your lawyer during the initial consultation:
- How long have you been practicing law?
- Have you dealt with cases like mine before? If so, what was the outcome of some of those cases?
- How do you keep in touch with your clients? Do you have a preferred method of contact? If I contact you how long should I expect to wait to hear back from you?
It’s also important to discuss pricing and fees up front. Ensure that you and your lawyer will be on the same page should you decide to work together. Ask questions like:
- How much do you normally charge for a case like this?
- Do you charge by the hour or a flat rate?
- Do you offer payment plans?
Don’t be afraid to talk to a couple different lawyers before making a decision. You want to make sure you can communicate well with your lawyer and are comfortable with them, since you will be working and interacting with them on a regular basis once your case gets under way.
Remember, bigger isn’t always better. Sometimes the personal touches and customer service can get lost in the bigger firms. A smaller firm can provide more personal and focused representation, but also often has the local expertise and availability that the bigger firms can’t match.
If you or someone you know has been recently experienced a personal injury, there will likely be many questions and many decisions that need to be made. Don’t make these decisions alone.
