When you have suffered a serious injury, it can be a difficult time. Debilitating injuries rob of us a quality of life that we had enjoyed and can leave us with medical bills, medical appointments, and a possibly a lifetime of discomfort. No amount of money ever really compensates someone for the time lost to an injury. And the insurance companies want to “compensate” you for pennies on the dollar. Which lawyer of the many lawyers to choose from will recover the compensation for you to which you are entitled?
How much money a lawyer is able to obtain for you often has to do with the perception of what he will accomplish for his client should he take the case to a jury. In short, an insurance company adjuster will ask himself, is this lawyer really a threat?
While Kevin J. Mahoney is best recognized for his accomplishments representing individuals accused of crimes, he has maintained a steady and successful personal injury practice. Because he has earned a reputation for being uncompromising, he has obtained impressive settlements for his clients.
When considering which lawyer to handle a personal injury or medical malpractice case, individuals often choose “personal injury” lawyers. Many, if not most, “personal injury” lawyers have tried few cases before juries. No lawyer, no matter how intellectually gifted, well-educated, or experienced in personal injury cases can acquire the skills or confidence necessary to succeed at trial work absent sufficient opportunities to develop trial acumen. In short, trial work should be left to experienced, battle tested trial lawyers.
This is true even if the matter is likely to be resolved short of trial. Lawyers lacking experience and self-assurance are likely to recommend settling a case short of a fair resolution to shake their misgivings about successfully trying the case before a jury. In any negotiation, the parties are constantly sizing each other up. A trial lawyer with an impressive trial record and a demonstrated willingness to “tee it up” may well accomplish what the insecure lawyer considered implausible. On the morning a personal injury trial was set to begin, the insurance company agreed to settle matter for almost twice what Mahoney had originally demanded.
If you need a lawyer to represent you in a personal injury or medical malpractice case, retain a trial lawyer that’s capable of kicking a little ass.
