What Steps Should I Take After an Accident That was not my Fault?

This is a list of articles from the blog on what you can expect and steps to take following an auto accident. The wrong choice can quickly ruin a car wreck case. Many law firms fail to take car accident cases to trial. Insurance carriers keep detailed notes on which lawyers and law firms settle easy and early as opposed to those who aggressively litigate on behalf of their clients. In turn, settlement offers are often commensurate with the risk an insurance carrier faces.

Keep in mind, many personal injury law firms are little more than settlement mills. In fact, the law firms you see advertising their wares on television are more often than not, high volume shops. It is very difficult to provide personal attention to that many clients. We have taken over numerous cases handled by high volume lawyers. The biggest complaint among injury victims is they cannot get a hold of their lawyer. Even more disturbing, many of these high volume firms pressure their clients to settle for far less than the genuine value of the case. The biggest advertisers need to resolve so many cases a month to continue paying for their advertisements. Further, many of these firms take a disproportionally small amount of cases to jury trial.

Be careful out there! You only get one bite at the apple. Make sure to pick the best car accident lawyer for your case.
