When you’re hurt in a personal injury accident, the person responsible might try to play nice. They might sound friendly, and it can be tempting to want to accept a check and settle the case. That can be a big mistake. Here’s why you need an experienced trial lawyer to help you with your personal injury case:

They can help you test the offer

A personal injury lawyer has evaluated hundreds if not thousands of offers. They know a good offer when they see it. If the offer doesn’t begin to address your real damages, your attorney can help you understand why. One of the things you rely on your attorney for is their judgment. Your attorney can put their experience to work to help you test settlement offers in your case.

Your attorney can speak for you

Trying to negotiate with the other side can be intimidating. When you have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side, they speak for you. You don’t have to fret about making a phone call or worry that you’re going to say the wrong thing.

They’re not intimidated by tactics

The other side might try to do everything that they can to avoid paying you a fair amount. They might send you letters that are intimidating and confusing. They might refuse to respond to your requests. An experienced trial lawyer knows how to handle a situation like this. They know when to contact the other side and when to push forward.

They know the rules

A personal injury attorney is an expert in the courtroom. They know the rules of civil procedure, and they know the rules of evidence. These rules are critical to moving your case forward and help you get the best recovery possible. With their experience on your side, they can help you work towards the best possible outcome in your case. Contact Richard A. Shallcross & Associates at 918-592-1645 today!
