How to Choose The Best Personal Injury Lawyer
Watch the following educational legal video by New York Personal Injury Lawyer Anthony Rattoballi as he explains how to choose the best personal injury lawyer to handle your case.
While many attorneys say they do personal injury or accident cases, they may not have actually tried any. They sign the case up, do the preparatory work and then, if the case comes to trial, they hire outside counsel or refer it to an attorney who does the actual trial work. I think it’s very important that you get an attorney who actually has experience in trying personal injury actions rather than one who signs them up and refers them to other people because they’re more likely to accept a lower offer that may not be in your best interest as the client because they don’t have experience in trying cases like yours, and they’re not planning try to the case. Instead, they may settle your case for less money than it’s worth. On the other hand, an attorney who has trial experience will not settle your case unless the number proposed as a settlement is adequate because they’re in a position to take it to trial himself rather than worrying about whether or not he will have to try the case or retain the services of another attorney.
If you’ve been injured, you can count on the experience of the attorneys at Aiello & Cannick. Anthony J. Rattoballi brings over 30 years of legal experience to the firm and has spent much of his career focusing on personal injury – many of his cases have ended in settlements exceeding $1 million.
