If you think you may have a trial coming up, remember that our Tacoma car accident lawyer may be able to help with many things such as educating you on how defense attorneys make more at trial. You should be aware that insurance defense attorneys found a loophole in the system by making more money litigating cases as long as possible instead of settling cases early after suit. This is how many insurance defense attorneys earn the bulk of their money. Insurance defense attorneys send bills for services to insurance companies and do not work on commissions. They are also not paid huge fees to make sure cases are settled early. Your Tacoma car accident lawyer should be prepare to do a lot of work if he or she files suit on your behalf. Even if the defense attorney knows that you and your car accident attorney may be willing to settle your case for less than your demand, the defense attorney will still not go out of his or her way to settle immediately. Keep in mind that, once your suit is filed, you and your attorney must prepare to go to trial because insurance defense attorneys are likely to try to drag the case out. In some cases, certain insurance companies will rarely choose to settle smaller personal injury cases unless you file suit. This can sometimes lead to a full trial. Your personal injury attorney will probably know the names of the companies that are known for being extremely conservative in choosing to settle claims. This is especially true of incidents involving soft tissue injuries. These companies know that individual claimants often believe, sometimes due to being forced, that they have to accept an insurance adjuster’s offer. Conservative carries also know that very few plaintiffs attorneys are willing to go all the way to trial, making it more difficult to earn what you deserve.
