Your Claim Deserves An Experienced Litigator

Comments Off

Should your personal injury claim be handled by a tall lawyer or one with a warm personality? Should he have a way with words? What law school should he have attended? I don’t have a clue. And, I don’t think it matters.

What does matter (and it matters a lot) is what fellow InjuryBoard blogger from Vermont, Ed Van Dorn, discusses in his recent post.

Personal Injury Firm’s Track Record

When a personal injury claim cannot be settled it is resolved by a jury trial. Insurance companies will usually only pay top settlements to personal injury victims represented by attorneys with proven track records in court. When personal injury victims are represented by lawyers with only limited experience or limited success insurance company’s and defense lawyers often take advantage of this and offer limited settlements or try to defeat the claim in court. Make sure the law firm you hire for your personal injury case has a successful track record in personal injury jury trials.

Ed’s advice applies in Florida just as much as in Vermont. I thank him for pointing out the most important quality of a personal injury attorney – will the attorney and firm take the claim to court aggressively if a fair settlement is not to be?
