About 90 percent of civil lawsuits are settled without a trial, so this may seem counterintuitive — but you should hire a personal injury attorney with trial experience, according to the experts at The Carlson Law Firm.

Your attorney's job is to get the biggest settlement or award possible, most likely from an insurance company. If you choose an attorney with plenty of experience negotiating settlements but no trial experience, the insurance company's attorneys will know you'll have to find a different attorney if the case goes to trial. It's a chink in your armor, so to speak, that could have real consequences during negotiations, The Carlson Law Firm argues:

When you’ve been injured, you need your case taken seriously from the start, not rushed to settle for a smaller amount than you deserve, or passed off to someone else after months of tedious negotiation. You need an attorney with courtroom experience.

The Carlson Law Firm, however, has attorneys with plenty of courtroom experience who are prepared to work toward both trial and settlement from day one, so you get the outcome you deserve — and that you and your family depend on.

While The Carlson Law Firm's lawyers are doing that tough work, they also know that you and your family are experiencing the stresses that come with healing and the unknown. You can expect professional, compassionate treatment; they'll be with you every step of the way so you don't have to go through it all alone. To learn more and schedule a free consultation, visit carlsonattorneys.com or call 254-526-5688.
