What makes a good personal injury attorney? The ability to sell.
A Baltimore accident injury attorney knows that being an excellent salesman provides an advantage over claims adjusters. Injury attorneys have years of experience working with claims adjusters, plus the benefit of the high stress world and experiences learned in law school. A good attorney is selling not an injured person, but a commodity of pain, suffering, lost wages and medical bills.
Part of being a good salesperson is knowing how to package the product, and you are that product. A Baltimore personal injury lawyer will sell a package highlighting the following:
- Pain and suffering;
- Medical bills; and
- Lost wages.
Here are a few examples of what a good attorney will do when it comes to your injury claim.
A good attorney will try to avoid litigation, which is both costly and time-consuming. This is why an attorney will try to sell the damages and convince claims adjusters of your case well enough that it can be settled to your satisfaction.
A good attorney ignores the clock and will invest time in dealing with the claims representative. No one likes to feel like a second-class citizen, and a good attorney will try and make the claims representative feel equal and important.
A good attorney will share information with the claims representative. At this point, there is nothing to be gained by withholding documents or other relevant materials.
A good attorney knows what the insurance adjuster needs to evaluate the claim. An experienced attorney will know what documents are needed, ranging from police reports to medical bills and reports to lost wage statements. A good attorney will readily provide legible copies of all documents, which saves time and expense for the claims representative.
