This post is from Board Certified Trial Attorney Derek Reams:
With the internet, Google, Yahoo and all of the social media outlets that we have at our disposal, how do you pick an attorney that’s going to best represent you and handle your case?
My suggestion would be to call that attorney directly. Ask them a variety of questions. Ask how many times has that law firm handled your type of case?
Whether your case is a motor vehicle accident case, a motor vehicle vs. pedestrian, medical malpractice, dog bite or any other type of personal injury claim, it’s important to know whether that law firm has handled those cases in the past and has handled them with success.
The next question should be, does that law firm in fact take their cases all the way to trial?
Insurance companies keep a list of attorneys and law firms. On this list are attorneys and law firms that settle their cases and attorneys and law firms that go to court taking their cases to trial. You want the attorneys that go to court and go to trial because the insurance company routinely and regularly offers better settlements to those attorneys and law firms that try cases versus those that settle just to get the case over and done with as quickly as possible.
We at Q Auto and Injury Attorneys go to trial, whether it’s for medical malpractice, slip and fall, motor vehicle crashes, most types of personal injury cases where someone has been injured through the negligence of another. We try all the cases that we can. The reason we do this is it gets the best results for our clients and it sends a message to the insurance companies, “We Mean Business”. It also tells them that no matter what settlement offer they are making, we won’t accept it and we will try the case before a jury if it’s means getting the best results for our client.
