Choosing the right lawyer for your automobile accident is very important. It does make a difference to the amount of money you may recover in your case. Your lawyer can help you with two important parts of your case. The first is to make sure you get the medical treatment you need. The second important thing is your lawyer can get you the money you deserve for your injuries.
The insurance company for the other driver wants to pay you the least amount of money for your claim. That is why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to deal with the insurance company. Everyone has seen the 1-800 TV ads for lawyers or the yellow page ads by lawyers claiming to be experienced automobile accident lawyers. Before you choose your lawyer, you should ask the lawyer you are considering if they have any trial experience – that is, whether that attorney has taken a case to trial.
- Trial experience is the most important factor to consider in hiring your attorney.
- It is the threat of a trial that puts the pressure on the insurance company to offer you a fair settlement.
In order to get the most money for your injuries, the insurance company needs to know your attorney is skilled and experienced in bringing a case to trial. Many times the insurance company will offer you more money to settle your case if they know your attorney is willing to go to Court to fight for your case. The insurance company knows which lawyers will try a case and which lawyers just want to settle a case.
