Following a catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice issue, or wrongful death, it is important to hire an attorney who has the depth of experience to take your case to trial. Although only a limited number of these kinds of cases are heard in a courtroom, hiring an attorney who can and will prepare your case for trial may work to your advantage.

Insurance companies prefer to settle injury cases rather than taking the time and effort required to litigate them. They are also aware that most attorneys prefer to accept a settlement offer for the very same reasons. But when the insurance company knows that you have hired an experienced trial lawyer from a leading trial firm like Burg Simpson, they are much more likely to offer a reasonable settlement because they know that your attorney has thoroughly prepared the case for trial and is ready to litigate if the offer is unreasonable. Hiring an experienced trial firm with a solid reputation may significantly increase your case value and your chances of obtaining the amount of compensation you deserve.
