The Power of Patience and Resilience During Your Injury Claim
December 9th, 2020
By Omid Rejali, Esq.
Patience and resilience are two qualities that you need during your injury claim. The process of obtaining justice unfortunately is more difficult as it should be. We have a justice system that focuses on maintaining substantial fairness between both parties-the plaintiff, the party or party's filing the lawsuit and the defendant-the party or party's alleged of wrong doing.
But more often than not, in my practice I have seen that in light of insurmountable evidence against the defendant's, they still don't accept responsibility. Many times this causes clients frustration and, at times they lose hope. But I am here to tell you, that you should not fall into their trap, because they want you to get tired, frustrated and hopeless so they can get away with not accepting full responsibility and paying you as little money as possible.
So how can you do that?
Having the right attorney can make all the difference. When I say the right attorney, I am talking about an attorney who truly has your best interest at heart. As attorneys we have taken an oath to be loyal to our clients. That means, putting the clients interest ahead of our own. Which means, if the insurance company is making an offer that we don't think we would recommend to our mother or sister, then we should not recommend it to our client.
Attorney's are hired because we are one step removed from the event and, that way we are able to look at facts and circumstances more objectively. Your attorney is the one who is there to guide you from being blamed by the insurance companies and turned into a victim for making a legitimate claim, to becoming the victor.
The personal injury attorney and firm you hire is one of the most important decisions you may make in your life. You want to make sure you hire a firm and an attorney that is willing to go the distance and actually cares for you-not just the bottom of line-making money.
You also want an attorney that helps you during those tough times when you want to give up. If you are dealing with an attorney and, you feel like he or she has gotten tired and is not willing to go any further, but that you still feel like you are not being treated fairly, you have an absolute right to consult with another attorney.
Make sure your attorney is there to help you become more patient during the process and build resilience. And remember, if the attorney that you hire does not have patience or resilience themselves, chances are they are not going to be able to carry that over to you.
