I’ve Been Injured Outside of Cook County; Where Can I Retain an Accident Attorney?
While a majority of automobile accidents occur close to home, some accidents happen very far away, in places with which you are unfamiliar. For instance, an accident can occur in areas through which you were just passing. When you are involved in an accident outside of your home county, do you need to seek out representation in the county in which the accident occurred, or can you obtain counsel closer to home?
The answer is that you may obtain counsel wherever you would like. Simply because you were injured outside of Cook County does not limit you in terms of your choice of legal representation.
When choosing legal counsel, you should look for a firm that treats you with respect, has a good reputation in the community and has years of experience working with personal injury and vehicle accident cases.
Competency is Most Important
We at Willens Law Offices believe that clients should be represented by competent counsel and should feel comfortable working with their attorney. An attorney who does not take the time to explain your options to you, or fails to explain what you are up against in your case, probably isn’t considering what course of action is in your best interest. While it is easier to settle a case out of court, sometimes the best course of action for a client is to actually take a case all the way to court. Perhaps the settlement offer isn’t enough to properly compensate the client. Would you really want your legal counsel to encourage you to take an offer that is less than you deserve simply because it would end the case and alleviate some of his workload?
You need counsel who will consider every possible avenue of compensation that you are entitled to pursue. You need counsel who will evaluate which court would best suit your needs and which legal theories are most appropriate for the facts and circumstances surrounding your specific case. You need counsel who listens to you, fights for you and works hard for you.
Willens Law Offices has a staff of seasoned professionals with many years of experience handling medical malpractice cases, motor vehicle accidents,personal injury cases,and a variety of other tort-based injury cases. We believe that competency is critically important to providing clients with the legal guidance and advocacy that they deserve.
