Working together with your lawyer really does improve the value of your case.
The reason is that you know better than anyone what has happened to you and how it is effecting your daily life, and your lawyer knows the law and how it applies to your situation.
Blending the facts and the law together is what makes your case powerful and convinces the Judge that you should be awarded maximum value according to the law.
Your part of the team work is to keep the lawyer informed of your medical bills, medical treatment, and what the doctors are telling you about your condition.
The lawyer’s role is to explain what will best convince the Judge of your disability, limitations, and permanent restrictions.
Make sure to keep in frequent contact with your lawyer so you may discuss different approaches and ideas.
It is very important to keep up with your doctor visits and constantly inform your doctor of your problems and limitations.
Make sure that you ask the doctor for prescriptions for assistive devices such as braces, canes, walkers or aids such as disability parking placards.
Your lawyer will want to discuss with you what types of questions will be asked at the trial or hearing well ahead of time so you can prepare.
