CAPITOLA CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Auto accident insurance claims and law suits can be very complicated, as
well as time consuming. That is why at Caputo & Van Der Walde, LLP
we take a team entered approach in an effort to make certain that victims
get the best legal advice and representation possible.
How to Choose the Right Attorney
For example, there are some law firms where the lawyer handles all aspects
of every single case. While, that may sound like a good solution to some
people, we at Caputo & Van Der Walde, LLP do not believe that it is.
We think that top personal injury lawyers should be focused on working
through the type of complicated legal analysis and litigation that only
attorneys are capable of doing. We find that it is most efficient when
attorneys in the office spend their time preparing the best possible arguments,
performing the legal research, and managing the entire team to ensure
that no stone is left unturned on behalf of the victim.
Far too often, a lawyer who, for whatever reason, chooses not to delegate
can end up in a situation where they cannot keep up with their cases.
In a situation in which the lawyer is unable to return every phone call
that needs to be returned, they cannot answer all of the questions that
all of their clients have, or they spend an excessive amount of time concerning
themselves with smaller issues, the attorney is no longer able to provide
their clients with the utmost quality legal services. It is important
that someone who has been seriously injured in an auto accident retains
a lawyer who works specifically on the legal aspects of the case, and
does not get sidetracked with work which can be delegated to other staff
members at the law firm.
At the same time, we believe that there are many law firms that may take
the approach where the attorney does almost no work at all. In situations
like this, the office staff for the lawyer - who may or may not have been
properly trained - handles all aspects of the case. This is where we speak
with people who at times tell us that they have never spokes to an attorney
during the course of their case, even years later they had never met the
lawyer or even seen a lawyer. Under such circumstances, the person who
was seriously injured did not even know if a lawyer had even glanced at
their case. This is no way a team approach. This is simply passing on
the responsibility for the handling of a serious injury claim to people
who are not skilled lawyers, and this certainly cannot be the best approach.
In our opinion, the best car accident attorneys will do the best possible
legal work on every case. They will make certain that only the top trained
paralegals are available to assist in the process of the cases. They will
make sure that there is a dedicated and skilled support staff in place
to manage the cases. Each person associated with the case has a responsibility,
and of course, it all starts with the top. At Caputo & Van Der Walde,
LLP, Paul Van Der Walde is a dedicated personal injury and wrongful death
lawyer focusing on serious injury cases throughout California. Since the
day Mr. Van Der Walde founded Caputo & Van Der Walde, LLP, he has
been dedicated to providing the best possible service to automobile accident
