One of our Alexandria personal injury attorneys talks about the most rewarding case of his career:
Helping injured people is generally rewarding. Whether it’s just providing a sympathetic ear to listen to what they’re going through or intervening when insurance companies are playing games with their life, using the skills and knowledge I have gained representing the people of Alexandria has been a very satisfying career.
It’s tough to choose my favorite case, especially when I realize just how many people I’ve helped over the years. How can I narrow it down? It might be easy to say it’s the case where the most money was recovered. However, I think the one that stands out most was the last case I took to trial.
When a personal injury claim turns into a lawsuit.
In that case, at every turn, the insurance company was unwilling to do the right thing and pay my client what he deserved. This was ultimately very frustrating for my client because he was in pain through no fault of his own, his medical expenses were sky high, and the situation was so unfair.
The importance of trusting your personal injury attorney.
My client and I were able to build a relationship wherein he trusted my advice and had confidence in my case plan. I presented my analysis of his options to him, and he decided to go the distance and take the case to trial. There is always some risk when you go to trial rather than settle, but his confidence in me helped him feel comfortable despite the risks he faced.
His decision paid off. The judge recognized the insurance company’s tricks and awarded my client all of his medical expenses and money for pain and suffering, as well as interest.
While most cases don’t go to trial, every case requires a solid attorney-client relationship. There will be times when the frustration, anxiety, and general inconvenience of dealing with the aftermath of a car accident will seem overwhelming, and it’s imperative for the client to have someone on his side who can take care of business.
When you have an attorney you can trust, and you’re able to have confidence in his or her knowledge and experience, it’s rewarding!
