How To Select A Personal Injury Attorney
If you or someone you love has been severely injured due to another’s negligence, it is impossible to understate the importance of hiring the right attorney to represent you. In fact, your lawyer will have a greater impact on the final result of your case than any other single factor. This is a very important decision that must be handled with the highest degree of care.
Make the Right Decision When You Hire an Injury Lawyer
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, we work for people who have suffered disabling injuries or have lost a loved one. We are their champions in and out of the courtroom. We understand the attributes that make a successful personal injury attorney. If you are thinking of selecting a personal injury attorney, consider the following:
The trial record of the law firm and the attorney: If you work with a lawyer with a history of success in the courtroom, you will already be at a great advantage. One obvious advantage if your case goes to trial is that you will be represented by a capable advocate. Of equal importance, your opposition will take your case very seriously. Insurance companies, government agencies and big businesses know which injury lawyers take cases to trial, and which lawyers are less likely to try cases. Generally speaking, the lawyers who are willing to try cases recover more favorable outcomes for their clients.
At GB&W, we have recovered more million-dollar and multi-million dollar verdicts than any other law firm in California. We can tell you without hesitation that our opponents know exactly who we are.
The law firm’s resources: Litigation of any kind is expensive and time-consuming. Bluntly, your lawyer must have the money and access to investigative and expert resources to fully prepare the case for trial. Your lawyer must be ready, willing and able to make an investment in your case that may not be realized for years, if ever. Too many lawyers take on severe injuries cases without fully realizing the magnitude of their opposition and the scope of the case they are agreeing to take on. These lawyers may not adequately prepare the case, or try to convince their client to accept a settlement offer than is far less than the facts of their case entitle them to.
At GB&W, we have the financial and other resources necessary to fully prepare your case and insure that you will have proper representation. We have successfully represented countless clients over the years. Our law firm knows exactly what we are getting into with every case, and are prepared to respond accordingly.
