Title: Some Point a Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyers will not tell you

A Law Firm that is Committed to Practical Solution
There are no guarantees in life that can help you
or your loved ones avoid getting hurt in car
accidents or from suffering from a personal
injury. The situation gets much more complicated
when the accident arises from someone elses
negligence. If getting injured in a car accident
was not challenging enough, you will have to face
all the legal battles so that you may be aptly
compensated for your loss. Stuck in such a
situation? This is the right time to hire the
best Los Angeles personal injury attorney. A
trusted personal injury attorney in Los Angeles
will save you from a lot of the stress associated
with the legal and claims process. However,
before hiring just any personal injury attorney
for your case, there are some things to keep in
mind. While many lawyers are honest
professionals driven by justice, there are always
some rotten apples in the legal industry. So, if
you were a recent victim of personal injury in
Los Angeles, CA, and wish to file a case, keep
these points in mind to avoid hiring the wrong
Some attorneys prepare documents that are
slightly modified older templates. Instead of
charging for minor edits, they charge you for the
entire document as if it was drafted from
scratch. There is nothing wrong with edited
forms what is wrong is the way attorneys price
them. You need to ask your attorney about whether
they are charging you fairly for a new document
or an old one. More importantly, you should find
a personal injury attorney that is competent and
confident enough to work on a contingency basis
where you wont have to pay out of pocket, and
the attorney will get paid only if they
win. Here at Kirakosian Law, our practice in
handling personal injury claims is to only do
them on a contingency basis, so you wont have to
pay unless we win.
Many personal injury attorneys make their
secretaries, interns, and paralegals handle your
entire personal injury or car accident claim.
Meaning, you are paying for an attorneys fee but
are getting a paralegals work. Having
highly-trained clerks prepare the forms is not
wrong, but lawyers need to be honest when
charging a fee for a fraction of the work. Here
at Kirakosian Law, our Los Angeles personal
injury attorneys will be handling your car
accident or personal injury claim from start to
finish. That way, you know you are in the hands
of seasoned and experienced personal injury
attorneys that will get you the best recovery.
Subordinates work
Certain basic legal tasks like simple injury
claims including small bruises and minor car
dents can be done with paralegals. Your injury
case might not be a major injury, but an attorney
handling your claim instead of a paralegal will
make all the difference. Thats why, at
Kirakosian Law, our attorneys handle all car
accident claims, no matter how big or small to
gain the best possible recovery for our clients.
A personal injury attorney, or any lawyer for
that matter, will charge you for every minute you
spend talking about your case. Even if you run
into our lawyer at a public place, the
conversation is billable. Hence, whenever
starting a conversation with an attorney, make
sure to ask them whether you are getting billed
for it or not.
Every minute costs
Lawyers do not need to disclose their history of
failed cases, disciplinary actions, or sanctions
to any client. Some of the disciplinary histories
are public records. To conduct your research,
you have to visit a relevant authority that
licenses lawyers. There will be a record of
disciplinary action at times, but the police will
not specify what the action was for. Other times,
you will find out the lawyer was disciplined or
reprimanded. Hence, it is best to do a background
check before taking on any lawyer or attorney for
your case.
If you have learned anything from TV dramas that
feature lawyers, litigation is won by energetic
lawyers who shout their lungs out. Much of this
grandstanding and posturing is done to impress
their client, whereas the judges and the
attorneys do not take them seriously. Aggressive
lawyers will end up costing you more money. A
professional personal injury attorney should
specialize in peaceful practice and litigation.
Looking for the most dangerous shark out there
will cost you a lot, and you do not even need a
shark in many personal cases.
Taking on your case
At times, attorneys tend to threaten their
clients, indicating if they do not pay or sign
the documents, they will miss the opportunity of
representation. However, a lawyer can discontinue
your representation for many reasons. Some
reasons include rules and regulations which the
lawyers need to abide by, and the lawyer will
inform you about these regulations. All the
clients should read professional conducts that
regulate lawyers in their state. This can be done
by visiting the state bar website. Knowing all
about professional conduct will give you a better
idea of what a lawyers permissible behavior can
Law is so complicated domain, hence not everyone
can be an expert in every field associated with
legal aid. Just like you will not ask a
podiatrist to perform open-heart surgery, you
cannot expect your injury attorney to give you a
trademark consultation. You want to be hiring
someone whos well accustomed to the
complications that arise legally. If its
possible, look for an attorney who has at least 5
years of experience in their defined niche.
Furthermore, if your case is complicated and
there is a lot at stake, consider opting for a
board-certified attorney. They will cost more,
but the quality of representation they provide
will always be as good or, at times, even
better. At Kirakosian Law, we have decades of
combined experience in personal injury and car
accident claims, so you know you are in the right
As attorneys are experts in particular niches,
they often have to refer clients to other
attorneys who are also qualified in dealing with
personal injury. In many jurisdictions, lawyers
can pay each other referral fees as long as it is
adequately disclosed to you. Moreover, attorneys
have google and yelp pages that show how many
clients are satisfied with the attorneys
handling of the claim. If you look at a firm's
google or yelp page, you can see if they focus on
car accidents or personal injury, or if they are
not really experts in that field and handle a
wide range of cases. At Kirakosian Law, we are
trusted by numerous attorneys who dont handle
personal injury claims and want us to take care
of their clients. And, as you can see, our google
and yelp pages are filled with all 5-star reviews
from happy clients. Check us out.
Often personal injury attorney you hire is not
the one you will be working with. While seasoned
attorneys are used to luring in clients, your
matters might be delegated to young attorneys who
are fresh out of law school. This is not a major
issue if your case can be handled more
efficiently by an attorney with a lower fee. Yet,
law firms can sometimes involve more people than
needed to help ensure that all the firms
students stay busy. This means the junior lawyer
handling your matter may spend 10 hours doing
something that an experienced attorney could have
done in 1 hour. You need to make sure that you
are not getting charged for the same time when
multiple people are handling your matter. If that
is the case, everything should be made explicitly
clear at the time of agreement. If a senior
personal injury attorney delegates your case to a
junior attorney, you should not be charged for
both of their services.
Finding the right personal attorney can be a
daunting undertaking, especially if you dont do
your research right. If you require a personal
injury attorney, follow the guidelines mentioned
above and ensure that they are not conducting any
malpractice. Remember to hire professional and
experienced attorneys that are waiting to take on
your personal injury case. For more information
