A common question many clients ask a Maryland personal injury lawyer is whether they will need to go to court. The answer to that question is complicated. Whether a lawsuit is necessary depends on several factors. Even if a personal injury lawsuit is filed, that does not n necessarily mean that the case will go to trial.
A more important question that you should ask an attorney when looking for a Maryland personal injury lawyer to help you with your injury claim is whether that attorney is prepared to go to court if it is in your best interest. Some attorneys avoid going to court by settling all of their cases. However, settling a case may not be in the best interest of the client.
Skilled Negotiators and Experienced Trial Attorneys
The attorneys at Pinder Plotkin are highly skilled negotiators. In many cases, negotiating a settlement for an injury claim is in the best interest of the client. Settling a claim without filing a personal injury lawsuit can save time and money for the client.
Settling a Personal Injury Claim Outside of Court
Our legal team spends a great deal of time investigating the accident or incident that led to your injury to gather evidence that proves the other party is liable for your damages. We work with you to carefully document each damage and loss to maximize your recovery amount. Our attorneys and legal staff put together a comprehensive settlement package that outlines the facts of the case and the legal theories that support the allegation of negligence, causation, fault, and liability.
In most cases, the insurance company or defense team makes a counteroffer to our demand for settlement. This counteroffer gives our team a beginning point for negotiations. In many cases, our Maryland personal injury lawyer can obtain a fair and just settlement for your injury claim.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit
In some cases, the other party refuses to negotiate in good faith. A personal injury lawsuit may be necessary to protect your best interest in those cases. Our attorneys and legal team have a unique approach to handling personal injury claims. We treat each case as if we are preparing for court from the beginning of the case. By doing so, we accomplish two goals.
Our demand for settlement contains valid and compelling legal arguments and evidence to support our settlement demand. Additionally, if the other party will not agree to a reasonable settlement figure, our team is prepared to file a lawsuit and take the matter to court. We save time and money by treating each case with the level of commitment, dedication, and thoroughness required to file a lawsuit and win our case in court.
When you hire a Maryland personal injury lawyer with Pinder Plotkin, you are hiring a trained and successful negotiator and a highly skilled and experienced trial attorney.
Hiring a Trial Attorney Can Improve Your Chance of Recovering More Money for Your Claim
Insurance companies are aware of the attorneys who always settle their cases without filing a lawsuit or before going to trial. They also know which attorneys are prepared to file suit and go to trial when it is necessary to protect the best interests of their clients.
Therefore, hiring a Maryland personal injury lawyer with a reputation of being a successful trial attorney can give you better odds of receiving a higher settlement offer from the insurance company in some cases. Insurance companies weigh all factors when agreeing to a settlement. The insurance company compares the cost of paying legal fees for defending a lawsuit in court, the costs of a trial, and the time involved in going to trial against the cost of a settlement. In many cases, the insurance company will offer a slightly higher amount for settlement if it knows that the personal injury lawyer representing the accident victim has a reputation of filing lawsuits and carrying through on those lawsuits.
