Because many accident claims that involve insurance coverage are settled without the need for a trail, it can be easy to dismiss the advantages of hiring an injury lawyer with courtroom experience. Sure, your injury case probably won’t make it to court, but a skilled trial lawyer can still help by maximizing the value of your claim. 

Many injury lawyers run a volume practice, where they take in a bunch of cases, and settle all of the cases cheaply, and rarely file a lawsuit.  However, if you’ve been injured in an accident, having an attorney who is ready, willing, and able to file suit in your case, and take the case to trial, will almost always result in greater compensation, even if the case doesn’t go to trial.  Additionally, insurance companies keep tabs (and oftentimes a database) on injury attorneys, and will generally know which attorneys settle cases cheaply, and which attorneys take cases to trial.

Here are 3 Hire a Lawyer With Trial Experience:

  1. A trial lawyer will prep your claim as if it was going to trial. As such, you can rest assured that your lawyer will have on hand, all the necessary information, proof, and resources to obtain favorable results from your claim, even if it ends in a settlement.
  2. A lawyer can leverage a possible court case in order to obtain a favorable settlement. Insurance companies will sometimes try to delay or reject claims from injured claimants, even if they’re completely legitimate. But put them against an experienced lawyer, and the adjuster won’t take you as a pushover and will be ready to yield fair compensation.
  3. Whatever happens, you have the final option of going to court if the insurance company doesn’t play fair. There can be instances when you’re unable to reach a fair settlement. Having a lawyer willing to go to trial can help you protect your rights and ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
