Preparing Each Case for Trial

Insurance companies are not likely to offer a fair settlement to a plaintiff unless they believe they are at risk of significant liability at trial. Our personal injury attorneys draw from more than 85 years of litigation experience to build a strong case on behalf of injury victims and prepare personal injury claims for trial.

Through our meticulous trial preparation, we signal to the insurance defense counsel that we are prepared to make a strong case on behalf of our client at trial if the counsel is unwilling to make a fair settlement offer. As a result of our thorough trial preparation, we have obtained many sizeable jury awards and settlements on behalf of accident victims.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
