What Makes an Excellent Orange County Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer? (Part 5)
Insurance companies and their defense lawyers all know who the exceptional Orange County personal injury and wrongful death lawyers are. They know which lawyers will try their cases and which ones will roll over and accept a settlement for pennies on the dollar.
A lawyer develops and earns his or her reputation through years of hard work. Large settlements, arbitration awards and jury verdicts in difficult cases all add to this positive reputation. Lawyers who are known for putting their client’s best interest before their own and doing all they can to get the results their clients are entitled to under the law are the lawyers who end up earning great reputations. They’re also the lawyers that command respect from the insurance companies, opposing counsel and juries.
A good reputation in Orange County will allow your lawyer to settle cases for full value that other lawyers can only dream about. It allows your lawyer to put pressure on the other side to step up and do the right thing. In personal injury and wrongful death cases, this means paying full value and the insurance policy limits to settle a case.
