“Our opponents know we mean business and are not willing to compromise cases for unreasonable settlement offers.” Attorney Victor Russo
Commitment, Backed By Professional And Financial Resources
Many law firms advertise they handle catastrophic injury cases. The reality is that only a few actually have the professional, technical and financial resources required to win these cases, in the event they go to court. A successful catastrophic injury lawsuit requires:
- Trial experience: The law firm must be prepared to expend the resources to gather all evidence, records and reports necessary to prepare the case for trial, before sitting down to negotiate a full and fair settlement.
- Professional resources: The law firm must not only have experienced lawyers on staff, but also have a network of independent experts available to reconstruct the accident scene, explain the medical details and serve as expert witnesses regarding future economic, vocational and medical damages over a lifetime.
- Financial resources: Catastrophic injury cases can take months and even years to settle or come to trial. The law firm must have the financial resources to commit to preparing the case, working through the settlement negotiations and presenting the strongest case possible in court. Your catastrophic injury will result in lifetime damages. Make sure you hire a law firm that will be willing to fight for you as long as it takes to get the full and fair recovery you need.
