Why do I need to speak to an attorney after losing a loved one to a fatal work injury? Austin injury attorney Aaron Allison explains. For more information, call (512) 474-8346.
Attorneys are not water walkers. Attorneys don’t just wave their hands and make all the problems go away. I wish that we could but an attorney is a legal specialist who deals with problems every single day. My father used to say that every time the phone rang at his law practice that it was a problem that he needed to solve. Experienced trial lawyers are professional problem solvers and that’s what we do for a living. So, when a person is injured, yes you need a legal professional to walk you through what your options may be to obtain recovery, but you also need someone who’s very experienced in the day-to-day workings of injury and all of the things that come with that. How do I apply for Social Security disability? How, where do I go to be retrained? Is there something for me or some mechanism for me that helps me retrain myself to get on with my life? What do I do if I’m incapacitated for the rest of my life? What doctor should I go to? What state or federal agencies should I go to? How do I solve this problem? How do I solve that problem? So, practice of law, injury law just isn’t the single narrow focus of how do I get a recovery for the client in the form of money, but you also have to provide to that person that counsel. Help them solve the other problems that go with the injury that they sustained and that to me is part of providing this very high level of professional services to my clients. You have to be honest with the client, you have to be accessible to the client, you have to call the client back, you have to communicate to the client everything that you know when you know it and you have to give the client the benefit of your opinion based on your legal training and your life experience and your professional experience. That’s what a good lawyer does and that’s the services that I try to provide to my clients. For more information, go to AaronAllisonLawFirm.com.
