What is the most important thing your attorney can tell you? Think about it. What is the best news you can hear from your personal injury attorney? Is it that she wrote a good brief in your case? Is it that she answered the interrogatories in your case? Is it that she got your deposition scheduled with a court reporter? Probably not. The most important thing that your injury attorney can tell you is that he or she got you $$ for your case. That is what I do. I hope you are not turned off by the title of this book. But the fact is the law can only give you one thing for your injuries. $$. It cannot restore you to your pre-injury condition!
We try to get you more $$ for your injury case. That is our sole purpose in representing you. Our goal is to get you the most $$ we can for the injuries you received. Want an example? Recently we had a case where a female client was injured in a car accident. Nothing catastrophic by any means. In fact, it was a soft tissue injury. We sent a complete package to the insurance adjuster. We included in it all of our client’s medical records, her bills and photographs depicting the parts of her body that were injured. Then we negotiated with the insurance adjuster. Hard negotiations for more $$. About a month ago the adjuster called me back and said the absolute top dollar that we will ever pay on this case is $20,000. Do not come back to me and ask for more money because there just isn’t any more $$. Either take the $20,000 or go to trial.
My client did not want to go to trial, but I wanted to get her more $$. So I waited about three weeks. Then I called the adjuster and never mentioned our last conversation when he said $20,000 was his absolute top offer. I casually told him that we could get the matter resolved for $30,000. He screamed and vented and said, “No, that is more than what the case is worth.” However, I got him to increase the offer. The case settled for $26,000! Needless to say, my client was ecstatic because that was $6,000 more than what she told me I could settle the case for. If you want that kind of fighter as your attorney, one who is willing to go the extra mile to get you every penny he can for you, then I am the attorney for you. That is what we do and that is all that we do.
