A lawyer who handles personal injury, motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death claims should have experience, knowledge of the law and a willingness to work hard. They must also have the courage and ability to take each case all the way to trial if necessary. Many attorneys who hold themselves out as personal injury lawyers avoid the courtroom at all cost and settle every case whether the settlement represents fair compensation or not. It does not take defense lawyers and insurance adjusters long to figure that out. They know that when push comes to shove, some lawyers will do anything to avoid the courtroom.
At Tewksbury & Kerfeld, P.A. our personal injury lawyers prepare every case as if it will go to trial. In doing so, we increase the chances of fair settlement.
