When you suffer an injury because of someone else’s negligent actions, you might have questions about who will pay for your injury expenses.
You deserve compensation for the costs associated with your injury, which can add up quickly. To get that compensation, you decide you need to hire a lawyer, but hiring a lawyer isn’t always easy.
Looking on Google for personal injury lawyers in your area, you may be overwhelmed by the number of different lawyers and unsure which one you should hire.
Some people might tell you that you will be fine as long as the lawyer is a personal injury lawyer. That, however, is untrue. Not all lawyers are created equal.
Some lawyers lack trial experience, and while that may not matter if you’re able to settle out of court, it will matter a lot if you do end up going to court.
For the best chance of success in your claim and to ensure you get the right compensation, you need an attorney from the outset that has experience trying personal injury cases in court. Here’s why.
You’ll Be Prepared for Anything
With a personal injury attorney who tries cases and has extensive courtroom experience on your side, you can rest easy knowing that you have prepared for whatever direction your case takes you.
Whether your case ends with an out-of-court settlement or a jury trial, you can be confident that your lawyer has been in this situation before and knows what to do. If your lawyer lacks courtroom experience, you risk having to hire a second lawyer if your case goes to trial.
Hiring a second lawyer could cut much further into your final settlement than just hiring one, which is the last thing you need after dealing with a personal injury.
The peace of mind you will have in knowing that you’re prepared for any direction your case goes, thanks to your experienced personal injury attorney, cannot be overstated.
You don’t have to go to court to benefit from your lawyer’s courtroom experience.
For example, if your attorney has little experience in court, they will have a substantial incentive to settle the case out of court. The opposing lawyer may exploit that to keep your settlement low.
If opposing counsel knows your attorney has courtroom experience, they know your lawyer isn’t afraid to go to court. This knowledge can give you leverage in negotiations.
At Ginsberg & Caspi, PLLC, we have seen it too many times to count. A client thinks they have their claim “in the bag” with their first lawyer, but when the case looks like it has to go to court, their lawyer calls us.
Historically, this is all we did at Ginsberg & Caspi, PLLC: we were trial lawyers on retainer for other law firms that lack trial and courtroom experience.
Now, however, we offer our clients the opportunity to hire us right from the moment they decide to file a claim. We do this because we want our clients to get the most out of their claims.
We make this happen by ensuring that we are the only law firm that our clients have to hire. After all, we are prepared for whatever direction a given case takes us. Settling out of court is no problem for our lawyers but neither is going to trial.
