VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Hello everyone, this is Robert Mansour and today I wanted to make a brief video about why it's a good idea to talk to a lawyer after an automobile accident in which you may have been injured. The reason that you want to do that is you want to talk to somebody whose going to lay out all your options for you and you don't' want somebody whose just going to tell you what you want to hear.
You want somebody whose going to tell you the truth, somebody whose going to tell you things candidly. I've worked for both sides of the fence, I've worked for the insurance companies as a defense attorney and I've also represented victims of auto accidents. I try to tell my clients all the good stuff about their case and perhaps the not so good stuff about their case.
I want them to walk into the matter with their eyes wide open. I also want my clients to avoid any traps, so for example, they might be talking to the insurance adjuster and learning a thing or two, but the things that they hear from the insurance adjuster may be good for the insurance company and not so good for the client. I always think it's a good idea and it can't hurt for you to go to a lawyer whose not going to be pushy, who's just going to explain the facts to you.
The lawyer will explain whether or not they can bring value to your case. I will have to tell you about half the cases that come through my office, we turn away only because we can't bring any value to that case.
Sometimes we will also tell the client about how to represent themselves, how to go about doing things on their own. In fact, on the videos page of my website, there is a video about how to present your own personal injury case. Again, visiting with a lawyer after an auto accident case is often a very good idea, especially so you can learn all about your options and what your rights are. Thank you very much for watching this brief video.
