Cincinnati Accident Injury Lawyer For The Deaf Provides Free Interpreter
Two days ago I resolved a accident injury case involving a car accident injury in Cincinnati to a young deaf lady. As a personal injury lawyer I learned a lot about the importance of communication through an interpreter.
Although this young lady could read lips, when it got down to a complete explanation and understanding of her case an ASL American Sign Language deaf interpreter was critical. We actually had a mediation with the interpreter present. It went seemlessly and the mediator even commented on how effective the communication worked. My deaf client did not have to worry if she understood everything. I also used a interpreter at the pre-deposition conference. This is at my expense.
I learned that this is a cost of doing business to help as an adaptive device. I wrote a blog article on the requirement for an interpreter for a lawyer for the deaf
So it’s very important as a personal injury lawyer to know the rules behind what you must and should do to represent a deaf person. I found the experience very enlightening and gratifying. I would be happy to be a Cincinnati accident injury lawyer for the deaf.
If you are a deaf person and have a car accident or other personal injury I am happy to consult with you and provide a ASL American sign language interpreter free of charge.
