Why Should I Hire an Attorney with Experience as a Defense Lawyer?

A personal injury attorney who started off as a defense lawyer for insurance companies has greater insight into the strategies and process that the other side may use against you. In this video, attorney Todd Schoenhaus, a former insurance defense attorney, explains why you may want to hire an attorney with experience as a defense lawyer. Video Transcription From this side of the aisle, I find it’s more rewarding because I’m making a real difference in people’s lives who have been impacted by incidents where they’ve been injured and need medical attention for the rest of their lives, or can’t work, or, in the case of somebody who died, the family member is grieving, suffered a real loss. So, being a plaintiff lawyer, I’m dealing with similar subject matter as to what I did is a defense lawyer, but I find it more rewarding and I find that I’m that…

Will It Cost More If My Case Goes to Trial?

When you file a personal injury lawsuit or any other type of claim, you should always look for a lawyer with trial experience. Although the vast majority of cases settle before going to court, having a trial lawyer on your side makes it more likely that the other side will offer you a fair settlement. In this video, attorney Fredric Eisenberg explains why, if your case goes to trial, you may actually stand to recover more than if you settle, in certain circumstances. Video Transcription It’s very important that, when you are seeking an attorney, you look to see what their trial experience is and the reason that’s important is the defendants in the case really don’t respect lawyers that haven’t been to trial. When they hear the firm Eisenberg Rothweiler, they know that we’re trial lawyers and we’re not scared to spend the money and take a case into…

Can a Personal Injury Settlement Improve My Quality of Life?

After a serious, catastrophic car or truck accident, a personal injury settlement or verdict may be in the millions of dollars. However, there is a myth that this amount of money is a windfall to a client. In this video, Philadelphia lawyer Ken Rothweiler explains that this money is used to care for the person, for ongoing medical treatments, to make up for lost wages that the person can no longer earn themselves. So, while a settlement can certainly improve the person’s quality of life, nothing can truly replace what has been lost and this money is only attempting to make the person or family whole again. Video Transcription: Most of the time, you know, people think sometimes that a big award is a windfall. I’ve been practicing 35 years. It’s never been a windfall for any of my clients. And even clients that have been rewarded millions of dollars,…

Can a Person Recover from a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Every person is different, and therefore, every traumatic brain injury (TBI) is also unique. In some cases, a person can fully recover from a traumatic brain injury, although the reality of sustaining a TBI is that a person may never fully be able to care for themselves alone. In this video, brain injury attorney Nancy Winkler explains that TBIs are an unusual injury in that they are generally not easy to spot. This is why they are sometimes referred to as an “invisible injury.” However, they are still very real and can greatly impact a person’s life forever. Video Transcription: Traumatic brain injury can be very, very severe or not as severe, depending. You don’t always see signs of a traumatic brain injury when you initially meet a person. It might be something that is less obvious. Over the years, I have represented a lot of individuals who have suffered…

Why Do You Need a Lawyer After an Accident or Death?

Not every injury or death will necessitate a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, and not every person will need a lawyer after an accident. However, it does not cost anyone any money to have an experienced attorney discuss and review the situation. This way, people can know for sure that they have done everything possible to hold a responsible party accountable and ensure all their expenses are paid to the fullest extent of the law. In this video, attorney Daniel Jeck explains how a person who experienced an injury or loss has nothing to lose by discussing the incident with a lawyer. Video Transcription: When I hear about a tragedy involving a death or a very serious injury to someone, I always tell them the same thing.

Should I Settle a Personal Injury Case or Go to Trial?

It is always the client’s decision whether to settle a personal injury case or go to trial, but an experienced litigator will be able to offer a legal opinion as to the fairness of the offer. At our law firm, our attorneys know what is a full and fair settlement offer, and when they believe a jury would provide a better recovery. In this video, personal injury lawyer Fred Eisenberg explains a situation where, although there were settlement offers made before the trial date, he and his law partner decided to go forward to have a jury assess the damages. Watch this video to see the result of going to trial instead of simply accepting a lower settlement offer. Video Transcription: What a trial lawyer means really, from my perspective, is going to trial, trying cases. I tried a case very recently with one of my partners, Ken Rothweiler, where…
