As a personal injury lawyer, I receive calls from potential clients every day. I have found that one of the biggest concerns for filing a lawsuit is the possibility of having to go to trial. While it is true that trial is always a possibility, the reality is that 95% of all personal injury cases will settle before trial – you may wonder why?
The truth is that a good attorney doesn’t have to go to trial to determine how a case is going to resolve
Before filing a lawsuit, I spend months and months hashing out all of the facts of the case; interviewing witnesses, consulting experts, and developing every scenario I can think of so that when I present the case to the other side, they have no choice but to respond with a generous offer for my clients. In other words, I’ll Make Them Pay!®
Trial is time-consuming and emotionally draining
My clients come to me because they’ve suffered a terrible tragedy, and the last thing they need to do is rehash that tragedy in front of a room full of strangers.
Another consequence of the tragedy they’ve suffered is decreased cash flow due to medical bills, lost wages, or the death of the family’s primary provider. My clients don’t have the means to support themselves through the years it may take to complete the litigation process.
Trial is an essential part of every personal injury case, even if it never happens. Preparing for trial should be a factor in every decision that is made during the early stages of a lawsuit. If this is done, you will have a much stronger case when it’s time to negotiate with the other side. That is why you need an attorney who not only has trial experience, but is willing to go to trial.
If you or someone you love was injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, don’t let the possibility of trial prevent you getting the compensation you need and deserve.
