It is human nature to hide your weakness and present your strongest case. We all try to emphasize the good parts of our stories and minimize the bad parts. While it is natural to want to protect oneself in this way, it is important that it is not done to your own detriment.
Specifically, it is important that you do not hide things from your New York construction accident lawyer. Your lawyer will not judge you or think less of you for sharing a fact that may make your case harder to win. Instead, your lawyer will use the information you provide to:
- Build the Strongest Case Possible. It is your lawyer's job to present the best possible legal case based on the facts as they exist.
- Anticipate Applicable Defenses. The weaknesses in your case may be presented as part of the defense. By anticipating those defenses, your lawyer can prepare for them and make the best possible arguments on your behalf.
- Advise You Appropriately. In some cases, a weakness may decrease your potential recovery. It is important that you know this as soon as possible so that you and your lawyer can make an educated decision about how to proceed with your case.
For these reasons, it is important that you answer your attorney's questions truthfully and provide as many details of your accident as possible. To talk to an experienced and compassionate New York construction accident attorney today, please call 1-800-362-9329.
