Why is it important to have a courtroom tested trial lawyer handling your personal injury case?

Video Transcript

You know even though every trial is unique to itself, there are certain things that go into preparation and presentation at trial that are very much the same case to case. At Farris, Riley & Pitt, LLP, when we take a case in, we start preparing it for trial. I think the only effective way to reach a settlement with an insurance company is if they understand that you are willing to settle the case as long as they’re fair with your client, but at the same time you are preparing for trial every day that you work on that case. Because at the end of the day, if they’re not fair with you, then you’ve got to present it to a jury, and you’ve got to be ready to present the best case for your client to that jury to get the optimum and a very strong result.

By way of example, the rules of evidence, very, very important. Rules of Civil Procedure. Those are two things that control how lawyers interact with each other, with the court, and with the jury during a trial. And if you’re not experienced in those rules, you could miss something. And something could be allowed into evidence that would seriously affect your case, that shouldn’t be heard by a jury. So, those sorts of rules and procedures are important to the presentation, and if you don’t know how to use them to your advantage you can get in real trouble in a courtroom.
