In the past, we’ve written a lot about how finding the best Denver attorney takes more than looking at statistics. Selecting the right attorney means finding a professional that you ‘click’ with.
In narrowing down your attorney search, first evaluate their specialty areas. It is incredibly common to find attorneys who are the “Jack of all trades” You might also have inklings to fall back onto that family attorney or tax attorney you know well. While there are very competent “one size fits all” attorneys in the country, when it comes to injuries and your health, it is critical to find a specialized personal injury attorney.
One of the most important things you can do right after an accident is to write down everything that you remember happening. Start your story with “I Got Hurt.”
From there, explain the sequence of events in order. Make sure that you write down everything you can remember in the order that it occurred. No detail is too small!Every attorney you meet with will ask for your version of the story.
