Personal injury litigation requires a great deal of creativity and innovation.
It sits at the intersection of deep preparation and incredible improvisation.
Why? Because personal injury law is flexible, allowing it the ability
to be applied effectively to a multitude of situations. It’s one
of the most powerful areas of law because it puts justice within arm’s
reach of anyone—but that’s why choosing the right lawyer is crucial.
Find Lawyers with Extensive Experience
Investigating injury cases are often a matter of asking the right questions,
then relentlessly pursuing the answers. That’s why investigative
skill is vital when looking for an attorney for your New Orleans premises
liability or personal injury case. Investigative skill is built through
years of handling injury claims first-hand. For instance, some injury
cases involve DUI crashes—a devastating and complex type of car
accident. Without experience in product liability, dram shop laws, or
manufacturing defects, how can a regular person (or inexperienced attorney)
know to ask how the at-fault driver’s bartender was at fault? Or
whether the car’s seatbelt design or airbag manufacturing might
have been at fault?
It’s not just true for car accidents—all injury litigation
requires a lengthy amount of investigation. A case that one attorney may
find impossible to win may be a success in another firm’s hands
all because some lawyers know what questions to ask, and how to get the
answers. These answers form the bedrock of a strong personal injury case,
compelling defendants to either settle quickly and generously or risk
losing even more in court.
Find Lawyers with Passion for Clients
Every firm will talk about having passion for clients, but it’s the
law firms that get
results that show their passion. Premises liability laws, medical malpractice
laws, complex litigation—these are all areas of the law that call
for relentlessness, for consistent effort over a long period of time.
Malpractice cases, handled correctly, can take
years to resolve.
Personal injury attorneys need passion, not just because it makes the work
more personally rewarding—but because it’s what makes the work
possible in the first place. Passion is what drives lawyers to seek the settlements
and verdicts that change their clients’ lives, provide long-term
financial stability, and avoid the “quick fixes” that many
insurance companies and defendants want to pressure plaintiffs into. Passion
keeps attorneys from caving to the demands of insurance companies, continuing
to pursue the best possible solution for injured people and their families.
That’s why it matters.
