Recently, Gary Montgomery settled a personal injury case in Boise for just under $50,000. The ironic thing is that the first lawyer the client went to told her she’d never get much of anything because insurance companies just didn’t pay for her type of injury. So what makes the difference in attorneys.
One thing is experience and the other is determination. Some injury attorneys are looking for a quick settlement so they can grab their fee and be done. Some cases, however, require lots of hard work. Knowing how the insurance adjusters think and what pushes their buttons also helps to get a good insurance settlement.
Here is a link to another pedestrian injury case where the first lawyer rejected the case and told the client they wouldn’t get anything. A second more experienced attorney reviewed the case, accepted it and ended up getting a settlement for almost $500,000. As you can see, getting the right attorney does make a difference.
