“Unlike many personal injury lawyers who like to settle cases for the contingency fee, would you say that every case you take you take is with the philosophy that it may go all the way to trial, and you prepare accordingly?”
Yes. That’s absolutely correct. In my experience, the only way to get the full value that is due unto the client is to be ready to go to trial and show the insurance company that you’re ready to take it to trial, and show the insurance company that they have a lot of risk, and at that point, that’s where they get a lot more – they will get a decent settlement.
If we don’t get a proper settlement, we’re prepared, ready and willing to file suit and take it to trial.
