Don’t hesitate to ask the attorney questions; after all, he or she will be representing you. For example, ask how often the lawyer tries cases in court. Although many cases are settled before going to trial, the best lawyers are willing and able to try a case to a jury when necessary and win. Why is this important? Some personal injury lawyers are uncomfortable in the courtroom and avoid trials; insurance companies know this and are less willing to offer a fair settlement in an attempt to force the attorney to settle for less.
If you’ve been seriously injured and have questions, please contact our personal injury attorneys at the Elk Grove-based O'Brien & Zehnder Law Firm by phone or send us an email, and someone from our office will be in touch with you shortly.
