Potential clients often call me wanting tips on how to handle the case themselves. Many believe that there is some magic bullet that I can tell them that will ensure their benefits are forthcoming.
There is no such thing as a magic bullet in the law. Any lawyer worth his salt must first gather all the information relevant to your case, interview the appropriate persons, collect the appropriate evidence, and proceed accordingly. This takes time and patience.
With all due respect to car mechanics, handling a legal case is not like changing the spark plug. There are many factors to consider, not the least of which is a plethora of rules, statutes, and regulations which govern a complex area of the law such as personal injury or workers compensation. There is simply no substitute for an experienced personal injury attorney.
