Settlement Attorney vs. Trial Lawyer
Do you want to go to a lawyer that’s what they call a settlement lawyer, or do you want to go to a trial lawyer? Every case that we accept in our office, we intend to try before a jury of your peers or before a judge. The reason being is because we don’t want the insurance company or the other large company that you are against to set the amount of money that you are going to recover. We want you to recover what is fair and reasonable. In my experience, if we can put the case in front of a jury, we can explain to them what your injury is and they will make the decision as to whether your case is worth X or Y.
Typically, the amount the insurance company will set for a settlement case is a lot less than what a jury would award. Now the caliber of lawyer that you hire for this type of case is pivotal. The reason being is that you need to level the playing field between you and the insurance company. We have handled these cases over and over again for decades. We know how the insurance company operates. In fact, I used to work for insurance companies and large companies. Having a lawyer who understands the courtroom and understands the insurance industry is pivotal to you.
