What does this mean to you when you are seeking an attorney?
Most personal injury cases never go to trial; they are settled out of court, and here is why:
- The insurance company respects the ability of the injured party's attorney to competently present the case to a jury if the insurer refuses to make a reasonable settlement proposal.
- The injured party's attorney is not experienced in trial presentation and wants to avoid a court case. That attorney may attempt to persuade his or her client to accept a lesser offer in order to settle the claim, so that the attorney will avoid the challenge of presenting a case to a judge or jury.
Make no mistake about it... the insurance companies know the difference between the two types of attorneys. Which one do you want on your side?
