Just Looking for Advice? You May Need Much More Than That

Person at a crossroadsThe N.C. Bar Association held its fifth annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day in March, and more than 460 attorneys from across the state worked together to field 8,648 calls over a 12-hour period.  Each year, lawyers participating in the event generously volunteer their time to discuss a wide variety of legal issues with callers, providing general advice and guidance where possible.

he 4ALL Statewide Service Day aims to help those who would otherwise not seek legal advice, and to make them aware of the resources available to them to get the help they may need. This worthy program serves a real need, as many people just need a little guidance to point them in the right direction.

But sometimes, more than advice is needed. Those who have suffered a personal injury as a result of an accident or negligence may need experienced legal representation to fight for compensation that is provided under the law.

When we speak with potential clients at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, sometimes we find that they are not seeking representation, but rather just want a little advice.  However, after our attorneys have had a chance to talk with them about the particular aspects of their case and their rights under the law, we’ve found that by the end of the call, many are eager to be represented.

Before they call us, most clients have already discussed their claim with the insurance adjuster for the at-fault party in their accident, and they often believe their case to be a simple, straightforward matter that can be settled directly. When they call us to discuss their lingering concerns and receive their initial consultation with one of our attorneys, many of these people come to understand how complicated the process of seeking compensation for their injuries can become and how important it is to have a personal injury attorney working on their behalf.  Insurance companies are working for their own interests – and they have teams of lawyers fighting to reduce or eliminate what they have to pay accident victims for their injuries.

Seemingly simple issues that clients think can be resolved without dispute often are much more complicated and can require the expert guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. While the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin are unable to offer representation to every client who calls us, we have always tried to do our best to answer questions that potential clients have when they call.

Even if you may not be seeking representation for your case, an initial case evaluation is free and confidential, and it may be beneficial.  You may end up speaking with an attorney who can provide answers to your questions and make you aware of legal issues regarding your case. The only bad question is the question that was never asked. Let the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin see if we can help you to pursue compensation for injuries that you or a loved one may have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence.
