There are thousands of automobile accident attorneys and many of these lawyers do an adequate job of representing their clients. Potential clients who meet these attorneys may be impressed by their pedigree (Harvard or Stanford Law), or by the fact they are in a well-known law firm, or have had their name in the news.
But achieving the reputation of a great automobile accident attorney requires the attorney to have the experience of many different types of cases and having been before numerous judges and juries, arguing the facts of their client’s case, and presenting it in the best possible light within the law that governs that case.
Over 90 percent of all cases are settled before trial, but a great automobile accident attorney prepares each case as if it will go to trial so that it is well-organized and will convince a defense attorney or insurance adjuster that you are serious and will probably achieve a verdict that is more than what the insurer is willing to pay.
Settling a case for its true value or close to it demands sufficient resources and thorough discovery, or pre-trial preparation. Ensuring that every potential responsible party is included in the claim; obtaining the documents necessary to prove the case; interviewing and deposing each party, witness and expert; and researching the applicable law is essential if a case is to be settled to the client’s satisfaction.
Only a great automobile accident attorney will approach each case as potentially going to trial, no matter how simple or complex it is, and will have a track record of success at trial and in the minds of their clients.
