No one ever wants to have to hire a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles. We understand that it’s not something anyone looks forward to, or any kind of rite of passage. But, unfortunately, it can become necessary. When you’ve been injured or hurt in some kind of accident or mishap and it’s no fault of your own, you should get an attorney. There are lots of actions you should take in and around the time you’re hurt, difficult though they may be. Here at the LA Injury Group, we can make the process easier on you, and ultimately get you more money for what you’ve been through.
We understand that when you’re looking for a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles, you have so many to choose from. When you go online, you can possibly find hundreds, if not thousands just by typing in a few words. That means that for you to hire an attorney, they have to be very good at what they do. Many attorneys will say they have “experience,” but they don’t say exactly what that experience is. A lawyer can have courtroom experience and have lost in court many times. That does count as a form of experience. That is not, of course, the kind of experience you’re looking for.
Here at the LA Injury Group, each attorney on our staff has won both in court and at the negotiating table. We’ve managed to get big compensation and settlements for our clients that allow them to move on with their lives easier. There’s nothing easy about being injured, but with our help things can be a little bit better. That being said, we always recommend to people that they should get attorneys who do have courtroom experience. That’s important for many reasons, even if a majority of personal injury cases don’t go to trial.
One of the major reasons to get a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles who has courtroom experience is that your case could conceivably go to trial. Not all of them do, in fact a majority don’t, but it does happen. When it does, you don’t want an attorney that’s never been there before. Trying a case in the courtroom is very different from negotiating with the other side. It involves an entirely different skill set used in a completely different way. You don’t want an attorney who’s doing that for the first time with your personal injury compensation hanging in the balance.
By that same token, another reason you don’t want a personal injury lawyer who doesn’t have a lot of courtroom experience is because they may be actively avoiding it. Consider: if you have an attorney that’s never gone to trial, the odds are extremely low that’s because they always got a great settlement for their clients. It’s far, far more likely that they’ve never gone to trial because they always took a settlement from the other side… any settlement. As in, they didn’t fight as hard as they could for their clients. They just took a settlement to take a settlement, clear the case, avoid trial and get their cut.
That’s why we our team of lawyers have real courtroom experience. They’ve won cases in the courtroom before, beating back the insurance companies as well as anyone else who stood between our clients and their due compensation. While not all of our cases go to trial, we’re always ready should that happen. We look at it as an opportunity to stand up for our clients, representing them in a court.
That being said, we fight hard for you in the negotiating room. Many of our cases do end in settlements. However, we make sure that we get the settlement that’s best for your case. Too many attorneys in this town will just take the first settlement offered because it happens to be a settlement. We would never do that. We keep you involved every step of the way. When the other side makes an offer, we tell you. Beyond that, we also let you know what we think of the offer in our professional capacity. That way, you’re never taking too small an offer when you could be receiving so much more.
Also, by letting you know what’s a good offer from the other side and what isn’t, you can make the best decision for your family. The more knowledge you have, the better a choice you can make. That’s why we stay in constant communication. Our doors, lines, inboxes and more are always open. We keep you in the loop because that empowers you, the client. This is your life, your personal injury case, and we believe that the more you know, the better off you’ll be.
Some people believe that they don’t have to hire a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles to take their case. There’s a strain of folks out there who think that if they’ve been injured, they can just handle it themselves. They believe they can talk to the insurance company, talk some sense into them, just lay out the facts, and get what they need from the insurance company. In our experience, nothing could be further from the truth. Study after study has shown that when you hire an attorney to take your case, you make on average more than three times as much as you would if you handled your case yourself.
More than three times as much. When you hear that phrase, it’s almost hard to believe, as it’s so much more than a person can earn when they’re trying a case themselves, but it’s true. It’s been backed up over and over again. In large part, that’s because having a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles on your side adds so much to your case. In some ways, people don’t even realize all the different benefits having an attorney can give you. That’s particularly true when you’re going up against an insurance company.
For example, when you’re hurt in some kind of accident, the insurance company does a thorough investigation of your case. In fact, the word “thorough” is probably an understatement. They go through your case with the proverbial fine toothed comb. They will know everything there is to know about your case. They’ll find it out through their team of professional investigators, all of which have plenty of experience both in working for the insurance company and investigating injuries. With all of that behind them, if there’s a way, no matter how slight or misleading, that they can find to diminish your injury, to give you less, they’ll find it.
By that same token, you can’t perform that kind of investigation yourself. You especially can’t do so when you’re recovering from an injury. If you’re missing work, or laid up in a hospital, or trying to get back to your life, you won’t have any kind of time to do an investigation. Beyond that, you also have to keep up with the case itself, even beyond the investigation. All of this would be overly taxing even if you were a 100%, which you won’t be. These are all the more reasons to reach out to us.
