For most people, an Orange County car accident attorney is someone they’ll need to turn to because they believe that they’re owed damages for the injuries they suffered at the hands of an irresponsible person. If you get involved in any kind of incident involving a vehicle, chances are good you’ll end up with physical and possibly emotional trauma. The most common response is to demand compensation for your trauma, and in order to do that, you’ll need an Orange County injury attorney.
During your initial consultation, there’s going to be a lot of things you’ll want to cover. The primary question in your mind should be whether or not this lawyer is the one that’s going to have the best chance of winning your case. To establish that, you’re going to want to look at his or her experience: how many similar cases has this particular lawyer fought? How many have they won and lost? How many have been with their current staff working for them?
Meanwhile, the primary question the lawyer is going to want answered is whether or not your case is a solid one. They’re going to want to establish that you have valid legal grounds to proceed with a case, and then they’re going to want to know if you have the evidence that you need to actually win that case. You should probably have this as your first concern, too, but it’s natural to be more worried about the lawyer up front and then get onto the case building once you have an attorney you can work with.
Once the two of you establish that each of you meets the others needs — and be prepared to talk to four or five attorneys before you find a perfect match — it’s time to discuss your options for moving forward. Unlike most courtroom drama shows, you’ll find that you have a lot of homework to do if you decide to proceed; your lawyer isn’t going to have to just sitting on your duff while he does all the work. You’ll mostly be asked to provide information and evidence in huge quantities — the faster you comply, the better your future case will be.
