The success of your personal injury lawsuit and the amount of your settlement is affected by and, in many situations, directly correlated with the experience of your representation in that case. Knowledge of tort laws, negotiation skills, experience in the courtroom, and professional reputation are all factors contributing to the successful representation of a personal injury case.
When you or a loved one has been injured or if you have lost a family member to a wrongful death, it may be difficult to focus on the specific details inherent in gaining compensation for your losses. The issues pertaining to accident and injury lawsuits are complex, requiring knowledge of tort laws and state regulations regarding statutes of limitation. Establishing negligence, a key factor in personal injury lawsuits, can be complicated, especially when more than one party is at fault. These are just some of the reasons you should have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
Are you ready to take on insurance companies and attorneys?
Many of us are not sure what to say to insurance company adjustors and are afraid they may attempt to trick us out of our rightful compensation for losses. Insurance company attorneys are looking after the interests of their client and will do all that is necessary to minimize or dismiss your claim. An experienced attorney knows exactly how to deal with adjustors and insurance company attorneys because they are familiar with their strategies and understand the laws as they apply to your case. Also, insurance companies tend to offer small and unreasonable settlements to those with inexperienced lawyers or to those who choose to represent themselves.
A reputation for professionalism and success often can eliminate some of the legal posturing that tends to delay settlements. An accomplished and respected attorney can competently negotiate your claim and successfully settle your injury lawsuit in or out of court. Further, only an experienced injury attorney will know how to optimize the value of your claim by fully determining all sources of negligence and evaluating all of your losses. It is highly likely that a novice will omit important considerations when evaluating the value of your compensation.
