The Myth Of Personal Injury Litigation
Some law firms would have you believe that drawn-out litigation is necessary in order to receive full compensation in a personal injury claim, and that patience is a critical ingredient in these cases. But patience does not pay your bills.
The truth is that claims can be settled fairly in the pre-litigation stage, and we have proven this time and time again.
You may find this difficult to believe, particularly if you have already started dealing with the insurance company. Lost paperwork, lack of responses and outright denials are common. If you did get offered a settlement, you likely saw that it was far lower than your case is worth. With the insurance company working so hard to avoid or minimize payment, how is it possible to get the money you deserve without going through litigation?
Here’s how it is possible: We get to work immediately and do not stop until we are done. We rely on sophisticated technology and negotiation skills honed over the course of more than four decades. We draw from vast knowledge of the law, and an insider’s perspective on the insurance industry, thanks to our founding attorney’s background as an insurance adjuster. We present a clear case to our opponent, and we get meaningful results.
Of course, we are also prepared for those instances when litigation is absolutely necessary. We can and will go to court to do what is right for you.

How do I prove that someone was to blame for my injury?
In order to prove negligence, you must make sure that all of the elements are true. These elements are vital to ensure that your case will be successful in court.
In order for a claim to be successful, it must be shown that the person or business that is being blamed for the injury had some type of duty that needed to be fulfilled.
Breach of duty
It must also be shown that this duty that needed to be fulfilled towards you was breached. A duty can be breached if the defendant fails to exercise the reasonable amount of care that was needed in the situation.
Cause in fact
Typically, you must also prove that specifically because of this duty being breached, the accident was caused.
Proximate cause is whether the defendant could have foreseen the outcome of his or her negligence beforehand. If the accident was out of scope, they have a lesser degree of responsibility for the negligence.
You must prove that damages in the form of physical pain or suffering were caused as a result of the incident. If all of these elements can be satisfied, it is likely that a negligence claim will be successful.
WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER?
f you are in a situation where you have sustained a personal injury and are now in search of a reputable lawyer, you are probably giving serious thought to which personal injury lawyer you want to hire to represent you. And as easy as it might be to quickly search the internet for lawyers in your area, you will probably find yourself faced with too many choices, while in the midst of the aftermath of the accident. You don’t have the time, energy nor knowledge of who you can trust to represent you.
The good news in all of this is that the circumstances of an accident easily lends itself to finding a good attorney since, obviously, you probably weren’t counting on needing an attorney when the situation occurred. As contradictory as it sounds, it is always a good idea to contact a personal injury attorney as quickly as possible after the occurrence of an accident as you can, since not doing so can result in losing out on rights that you are entitled to.
The bottom line, however, is that when you begin the process of interviewing lawyers who you might consider hiring, the first thing most of them will do is speak with you about your case and the prospects of winning a judgment or a settlement. Rest assured that in this process you will hear a lot of opinions as to whether you have a good case or not, but what makes a great personal injury lawyer? One telling clue is that a lawyer will give you a comparison of your case with others that he or she has handled in the past.
