Is it really that important to hire a lawyer with trial experience even though most motorcycle accident cases are settled out of court?
While you don’t have to hire a lawyer with trial experience if you are pretty sure your case will be settled out of court, it is always in your best interest. When you hire a lawyer with courtroom experience, that attorney knows what it takes to get the job done and will be willing to go all the way to trial until he gets you the best possible outcome in your case.
Although you might not want to waste your time or money going to court, having an attorney with trial experience can help increase your settlement. This is because insurance companies are familiar with which attorneys always settle cases and which attorneys have pursued cases in court. If they know you have a lawyer on your side who hasn’t ever set foot in a courtroom, they might try to get away with presenting a lower final offer to that attorney than to one who has tried many cases in court.
When you have an attorney in your corner who isn’t afraid to go to trial, you can rest assured knowing your attorney will recommend the right thing in your motorcycle accident claim.
