Can I Avoid Taking My Personal Injury Claim to Trial?
If you were injured by someone else’s recklessness, carelessness or negligence, the last thing you may want to do is battle it out in court. Fortunately, you may not have to. With the help of a Portland personal injury attorney from the Law Offices of Timothy Grabe, you can take steps to recover compensation without the added hassle of going to trial. Our firm understands that most people don’t want to fight; many would rather settle their claim out of court, so we have made it a priority to help our clients avoid litigation when at all possible. While some lawyers will push their clients to litigate, since it will usually result in costlier attorneys’ fees, we believe that the most effective way to resolve a case is to take a peaceful and diplomatic approach to negotiations.
Although the insurance company may claim that they cannot offer you any more money than what is already on the table, they may also want to do whatever it takes to settle the matter before they’re dragged into court. For this reason, a majority of all personal injury claims are settled long before the plaintiff ever has to step foot in a courtroom. However, it is also true that our Portland personal injury lawyer is not afraid to take on the insurance company in court if the circumstances so require. In fact, he was able to recover a combined $1.5 million in damages throughout his last six trials when the insurance companies had only offered $150,000. With this in mind, you can rest easier knowing that our firm will do whatever it takes to recover the level of compensation that you deserve.
