Avoid Law Firms That Are Not Problem-Solvers
Many personal injury law firms develop a reputation in the insurance industry for being unnecessarily difficult, rude, insulting and unfair. Unfortunately this attitude ends up being redirected to the client and their case becomes directly affected. If the insurance companies feel there is no fair, civil and reasonable channels with the plaintiffs or with the plaintiff’s law firm, there will be little to no negotiations. As a result, this type of law firm must put 90 percent of their cases in suit or litigation to force a settlement or judgment.
What does this mean? An injured client must unnecessarily wait years for a settlement or judgment because the case must go into litigation. Forcing a trial also involves the risk of ending up with nothing, when good faith negotiations by a reputable lawyer may have yielded a favorable settlement.
