The biggest challenge to pursuing a case depends on the facts of every case. If the case has no wrinkles at all, it is likely we will get it settled without even having to file a lawsuit. But almost by definition, when we have to proceed to a lawsuit, there is some challenge in the case.
In some cases, the injuries and the damages might not really be disputed but the defendant’s negligence and their responsibility for those damages is disputed. In that case, the biggest challenge would be finding and producing persuasive evidence that supports our client’s version of events and disproves the defendant’s versions of events.
There are other cases where the defendant might admit that they are responsible for causing the accident but dispute that the injuries were caused by the accident. In those cases, the challenge is to get persuasive medical evidence and expert testimony to support the connection between the accident and the injuries.
Can People Even Afford An Experienced Personal Injury Attorney?
Everybody can afford a competent, qualified, experienced personal injury attorney. We work on what is called a contingent fee basis for just that reason. That means the client never pays anything out of their pocket for any of the costs, fees or the repayment of the medical bills. Those things are only paid back if there is a recovery. If there is not a recovery, the client never has to reimburse us for anything. In that sense, you could really say that you cannot afford not to have an experienced attorney.
Red Flags To Consider When Interviewing Personal Injury Attorneys
An attorney asking for money upfront from a client would be a red flag. A firm that is unable or unavailable to answer questions in a timely manner would be another red flag. An attorney who will guarantee you a recovery of a certain amount or tell you they know what a jury is going to do in a particular case is probably trying to sell you something.
Unique Attributes Of Fodera & Long In Handling Personal Injury Claims
At Fodera & Long, we have extensive experience in the personal injury field, and only represent injured plaintiffs. Most importantly, we are not afraid to pursue a case all the way through trial. The insurance companies and the big corporations know that there are lawyers and law firms that will bluff and beat their chests, but who at the end of the day will take whatever the final offer is rather than go to trial, because they run a volume business and it is cheaper to settle a case and move on to the next one rather than spend the time and money required to go to trial. The insurance companies know that they can get away with relatively low offers in those cases because the plaintiffs’ lawyers are bluffing. Those same companies know that at Fodera & Long, when we say we are going to take a case through to trial if we do not get a fair offer, we mean what we say.
