In an ideal world, our days would go on without a hitch. In reality, accidents occur, and we have to be able to handle these situations quickly. Thankfully, technology allows us to become a bit more flexible. If you’ve been involved in an accident and need legal counsel, our legal expertise can be delivered to you virtually.
Although this pandemic has created many challenges to the court system (such as the cancellation of jury trials) we’ve also seen the benefits of online video conferencing. For example, before COVID19, scheduling a mediation could take a lot of time to coordinate with the attorneys, other parties, and key decision makers from the insurance company who may have to travel from out of state. Without the burden of travel, key decision makers are more inclined to be “at the table” if they can appear remotely. With these key people present, your claim may have a chance of being resolved more quickly at a virtual mediation.
If you’ve still not scheduled a free virtual consultation, here are 4 reasons to do so now.
First and foremost, the ability to consult with a legal expert remotely is convenient. In terms of safety in this Covid-19 climate, it’s the best way to prevent the spread of illness. It’ s also worth noting, scheduling conflicts are no longer much of an issue.
In our busy lives, sometimes we put off things we may need to do like meeting with a lawyer because of the inconvenience to our schedules. If you have small children, people you have to care for, pets, packages being delivered, you name it, there’s no need to make other arrangements. Now you can fit in a quick virtual meeting with a lawyer at your own convenience.
2. Saves Money
Many of us are getting 3 months to the gallon on a tank of gas, so why drive to an attorney’s office if you don’t have to? break the bank if you can conserve. With virtual meetings, Overall, travel time back and forth to an attorney’s office is greatly reduced and depending upon how quickly the case is settled, these expenses might otherwise add up; not to mention the sheer inconvenience of all of that driving.
3. More Choices
C. Todd Smith Law is available to you no matter the distance. When there is a team you can trust working for you, the distance between you and our office is no longer becomes a factor. We can represent our clients throughout the country regarding their Florida injury claim. The geographic barriers that once inhibited us from working with clients in other geographic areas no longer exist thanks to online video conferencing technologies.
4. Better Lawyer-Client Relationship
When you have urgent legal needs, you must communicate with an attorney, even when it can’t be done in person. The foundation of the attorney-client relationship is trust. That trust is built on quality communication. Face to face communication (even via video) is far better for building trust than just telephone or written communication. When a client trusts his or her lawyer, he or she is much more comfortable and willing to rely on the advice of the attorney, which leads to better decisions. Effective communication early on assures progress, and helps you to attain the best results for your case.
