Contrary to the Insurance Industry and other Mega Corporations' smear campaigns against Personal Injury Trial Lawyers, they are not all Compulsive Litigants. All Attorneys have a duty to look at all facts under attendant circumstances, and conduct their own due diligence, prior to filing a claim? A Competent Personal Injury Trial Lawyer would adhere to this important requirement, at all times and more:
A Competent Personal Injury Trial Lawyer would, reasonably, try to find out what happened, to whom, when, and why?
To answer such essential questions, an experienced and mindful attorney would listen to his or her client's story attentively. Then look and diligently examine all evidence that reasonably can be allocated to ascertain the veracity of the client's version of the story. Such evidence may include police reports, medical reports, eye witness and expert witness testimonies, etc., which collectively would give the lawyer the confidence needed to devise a viable course of action for the client.
Procuring such evidence requires a lot of research, investigations and lawyering skills. Yet there are no short cuts. A Lawyer who files a claim without appropriate due diligence could cause damages to his or her client; be sanctioned by the court; be disciplined by the state bar and even subjected to Malpractice Lawsuits.
Investigation and Depositions
A Competent Personal Injury Lawyer would lawfully approach witnesses or their attorneys, if represented by a lawyer, and set up time to interview them to hear their version of the story. They could also interview an investigating officer and send a Subpoena to any necessary party, who is not cooperating.
Filing a Claim or a Lawsuit
Once a Lawyer is, reasonably, certain that he or she can file a viable claim (not a frivolous one) against a natural person or a corporation, supported by provable facts, he or she can file a claim.
This is just a brief note to make sure that you understand the steps required to evaluate a case. So if you go to a lawyer; offer a bunch of money to file a claim and he or she rejects your request, it's not because the Lawyer is made of money, but because a Competent Lawyer must place his DUTIES above DOUGH!
In other words, a Competent Lawyer is Morally and Legally responsible not to file frivolous lawsuits! Therefore, it is always best to discuss your case honestly with your lawyer and know your rights, right away.
Remember all your confidential communications with your attorney regarding your case would be protected under Attorney-Client Privilege Law!
