Make no mistake about this; the attorney that you hire is going to be one of the most important decisions that you will make about your case because the insurance companies know the track records of the attorneys. They know who will build a case and hold them accountable for all of your injuries and damages. They know the attorneys that will just fold like a deck of cards and take a low settlement offer. You need an attorney who is a skilled and experienced trial lawyer.
If you don’t have a trial lawyer, you’re not going to get a full and fair settlement. If you do not have a competent trial lawyer, it’s like going to the beach and swimming in the ocean and having a lifeguard that doesn’t know how to swim. What good is that going to do you if you’re drowning? What good is it going to do you if you have a divorce lawyer or a tax lawyer, or a lawyer that wrote a will in your serious motorcycle crash case here in Ventura?
The most important thing you need is an attorney that you have a lot of confidence in and a close, working, personal relationship with because you and that lawyer are going to be working together as a team on your case. If you don’t have an attorney who responds to you, who is available to talk to you, who knows you and knows how this crash and your injury has affected your life here in Ventura, how is that attorney going to protect your interests? You don’t need some firm down in L.A. that says, “Oh, yeah, we handle cases all over the state.” You need someone who is here, who’s got boots on the ground, who is accessible to you, and who really cares about you and your case.
