HOW A GOOD ASHEVILLE PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER CAN HELP

By bringing a strong reputation as a successful trial attorney. This fact can strongly influence the amount of your settlement. When personal injury lawyers are known as skilled litigators who routinely take their cases in front of juries, that reputation alone can often cause insurance companies to increase their settlement offers. Insurance companies know that when a good trial lawyer is on a case, they may end up spending more money by going to court than they would by settling. Insurance companies know who the personal injury lawyers are who always settle and don’t go to court. You can bet that insurers make lower settlement offers to those lawyers because they aren’t afraid of having to spend even more money at trial.

By preparing your case as if it is going to trial. I prepare every case as if it is going to trial. If the insurance company in your case refuses to offer a fair and reasonable settlement, your case will have to be ready to go to court and be argued before a jury. As an experienced personal injury trial lawyer, I understand the way insurance companies think. Personal injury lawyers who don’t try cases aren’t taken seriously by insurers or their high-priced attorneys. A good personal injury lawyer will always be thinking about how to try your case, even at your first meeting. Everything the lawyer does should be to prepare for a jury trial, even if it seems unlikely. Never hire an Asheville personal injury lawyer who does not consistently try cases before a jury.

By communicating with your doctors. A good personal injury lawyer will talk to your doctors to learn specific information about your injury, how you were injured, what your future looks like, and whether your injury is permanent. In my personal injury practice, I always reach out to doctors of my injured clients to find out exact details of their injuries and what types of expensive medical treatments they will need now and in the future. This information is an effective way to show insurance companies, or jurors, exactly how a person’s injuries caused by a negligent accident have negatively affected their life, which can greatly increase a case’s value.

By articulating the impact of your injuries on your life. It’s important to have someone else speak for how your injury has affected you. When you have to speak for yourself, it can be harder to open up about exactly how difficult things are for you since your accident. You may be uncomfortable talking about your pain. A good personal injury lawyer will find people in your life who have seen how your injuries have affected your day-to-day life and your overall lifestyle. While insurance companies who think in dollar signs may not be sympathetic to the negative impacts of injuries on a person’s life, jurors most likely will identify and have empathy. When other people in your life talk about what they have observed about you since your injury accident, it can have a real impact on a jury and a potential jury award. A good Asheville personal injury lawyer will identity people in your life who can speak about your injuries and prepare them to testify.

By investigating the at-fault party. The reality is that juries and insurance companies will value your case higher when the at-fault party has acted particularly poorly in causing your injury. For example, a drunk driver causing a crash is a different case than that of a person who simply took his eyes off the road for a moment. A thorough investigation of the at-fault party is essential to increasing the value of a case. Was the at-fault person texting on their phone at the time of the car crash? Did the corporation hire someone they shouldn’t have? Did the other driver have a suspended license but drive anyway? All of these examples would increase the value of your claim. A good personal injury lawyer will thoroughly investigate all possible ways that the at-fault person or other party may have acted egregiously when they caused your injury accident.

By effectively standing up for you in the courtroom. Should insurance negotiations be unsuccessful, a good Asheville personal injury attorney will stand up for you in the courtroom. As an experienced trial attorney, I understand what it takes to articulate clients’ cases before juries in order to obtain successful outcomes.
