It’s important to work with a bilingual lawyer if you have suffered an injury or a car accident and either party, the driver or yourself, the victim, speaks English as a second language. The damage and trauma caused by an accident based on the carelessness or negligence of another can be overwhelming. And trying to navigate the legal field can be more stressful. If language is a further barrier to smooth communication, the situation can be even more of a struggle.

TRUST & COMMUNICATION
Trust depends on open lines of communication. It’s important that you trust your lawyer and that you know that you can openly and freely communicate and be fully understood about your case, the details of your injuries, and anything else important they need to know.
When both parties working together speak the same language, the chance of misunderstandings, breakdowns in trust, and ineffective communication is greatly reduced. The more direct communication that takes place, and the less there is to translate, from police paperwork and medical records to witnesses’ accounts of what happened, the more of a chance there is to come to a satisfactory resolution and to receive the compensation you’re due.
Clearly communicating in the same language is an advantage every individual has a right to during the legal process, from legal representation to being understood in court. By limiting the misunderstandings that occur, a legal case will have a higher chance of success.
