Negotiating is What Wins Most P.I. Cases.
Expertise in P.I. law is vital. Debating skills help big-time.
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 an expert negotiator. Some 95% of cases are settled without trial.
Your lawyer must be ready to go to trial if talks fail.
Some attorneys are good at one-on-one bargaining. 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.
