Why Hire A Trial Lawyer For Your Personal Injury Case

Attorney Marc J. Victor

With all the noise of billboards, television, and radio ads, it’s not easy knowing which law firm to hire for your personal injury matter. When looking for the right attorney, you should try to ignore the hype, do a little bit of research, and find an attorney who has decades of experience in both litigating and trying personal injury claims.

Not all personal injury lawyers are trial lawyers. In fact, the vast majority of personal injury lawyers have rarely even entered a courthouse, and some don’t go to court at all in personal injury matters. That’s because they are not trial lawyers and are only interested in cases that end in a settlement. If they are not able to settle the case, they farm the cases out to other lawyers who have experience with trying personal injury cases.

You should never be pressured into settling your case for less than what you are entitled to. There are some law firms out there whose entire business model is based on producing high volume and will simply try to quickly reach a settlement in your case, then move on to the next one. If the other side knows that the law firm you hired always settles and never goes to trial, they are more likely to give you a low offer that is nowhere close to what your case is worth. Going to trial is sometimes necessary, and oftentimes, you need to go through with filing a lawsuit to show the other side that you are serious.

Insurance companies are familiar with which attorneys simply try to settle cases and which ones go to court. In most cases, insurance companies will make offer settlements based on whether your attorney has experience in court or not. Attorneys who are not afraid to go to trial have the most leverage when negotiating with insurance companies because the threat of going to trial usually means larger settlements for the victim.

If your attorney does not have trial experience, chances are the insurance company will offer less because they know your attorney will not take your case to trial. But, if your attorney is a trial lawyer that has a track record for going to trial and a high success rate, they are more likely to offer a larger settlement to avoid trial. For this reason, it’s important that you hire a trial lawyer for your personal injury claim.

Insurance companies also have adjusters on staff who get paid to minimize, delay, or deny your claim. It is in their interest to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. Although many cases settle out of court, you should be prepared to have your case litigated in court if necessary. Sometimes just the threat of a lawsuit can force a settlement in your case. Hiring an experienced trial attorney could also determine the amount of your settlement.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Group during a... couple difficult circumstances in my life and although it is never fun to have the need for a defense attorney, the tireless efforts that Mark, Rachel and the rest of the team put in on my cases went over and above. At the end of the day my results were better than I could have expected. I highly recommend them for all of their services and more than satisfied with everything that they did for me.Thank you Attorneys for Freedom,Chip Kotyread more

I highly recommend the Attorneys For Freedom! I signed up for the attorneys on retainer program and... it has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The program manager, Jonathan Harris, guided me through the process of using their legal service’s like a true professional. The communication has been excellent and it truly was refreshing and comforting knowing I had a reputable law firm helping me every step of the way. He actually relieved me from the headaches of trying to deal with this issue, so I could focus on our business and as a result my business partner and I did get a favorable outcome that we’re happy with.read more
