Selecting the right Ohio injury lawyer can make all the difference to you and your family following a personal injury or wrongful death.  Of course, everyone wants legal counsel who will passionately represent them.  But there are many additional qualities that are important to consider when hiring an attorney.Ohio_Injury_Lawyer.jpg

The right lawyer for you may not necessarily be the right lawyer for someone else.  The trial team at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, works with you to fully understand your needs, set and meet your expectations, and deliver the personal experience you should expect from trusted legal counsel.

If you or a loved one are thinking about hiring an Ohio injury lawyer, here are a few of the qualities that you may wish to consider.

Experience

The first consideration is the most obvious.  When you are injured, you want to know that your attorney has the experience of negotiating, settling, and trying similar cases.

The attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA have been representing personal injury plaintiffs for well over three decades.  With a diverse, trial-tested team, Lowe Eklund possesses the experience of countless personal injury cases.

Responsiveness

Injury claims can take months—or even years—to resolve.  During that time, you have a right to know how your case is progressing.  Find out how responsive your attorney is—to your questions, your concerns, your emails and calls.  The right attorney for you will be able to communicate with you in a manner that you feel is both timely and clear.

Counselor

In court, attorneys are often called “counselor”.  While this term refers to the role of legal counselor, individual’s suffering a personal injury often rely on their attorneys for additional counsel. 

Personal injury lawyers can and should provide guidance and alternatives to you and your family regarding how to file claims for disability, make ends meet during times of lost wages, file related documents in the probate court, and handle myriad other issues that may arise in conjunction with your case.

Personal Interest

In all situations, we want to know that we are being assisted by someone who genuinely cares about our best interests.  Unfortunately, there is not simple test for this beyond trusting one’s gut.  Sit down with your prospective attorney.  Talk to him or her.  You have a right to assess whether they will take a personal interest in your success or if they will treat you like just another file.

At Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, no one is just another file.  Our clients come to us because we are their last chance for justice, and that is an obligation that we do not take lightly.
