Once I hire a lawyer, what do I do next?

Derek

Just like it pays to follow your doctor’s advice on medical issues, once you’ve hired a lawyer, it benefits you to follow their advice on the issues surrounding your case.

Make sure you keep your lawyer informed about anything of significance:

  • A change in your medical care or doctors;
  • Improvement (or worsening) of your injuries;
  • Your ability (or lack of ability) to work.

And especially, let your attorney know right away if you have reason to believe anyone connected with the Defense is attempting to contact you or spy on you.
