The Key to Success in Personal Injury Cases is Skill
Having experience in Personal Injury law is vital; so is the nature of that experience.
Beyond knowing the issues of liability, the statutes of limitation, and what is essential in assessing and investigating a claim, the attorney needs to be a skilled negotiator. Some 95% of cases are settled without trial.
Make sure that your lawyer is prepared to take the case before a jury if talks fail.
Some attorneys are good at one-on-one dialogue. Others are strong on their feet in the courtroom. You may want to look at someone who is both a mediator and a trial lawyer.
