Settlements Are Harder to Negotiate Today than They Were in the Past

One reason that it is vital to have an experienced Orange County personal injury attorney on your side these days is because insurance companies are getting more difficult to negotiate with. There are several reasons for this:

A Glut of Advertising for Personal Injury Litigation

In recent years, many personal injury attorneys began advertise on television online. Though most of these advertisements have been tasteful and informative, some attorneys resort to cheap attention-getting tactics. While these ads do generate some business for these attorneys, the overall public perception of personal injury attorneys has been damaged. This has led to juries finding in favor of the plaintiff in personal injury claims less often than they did in the past-this is a fact that insurance companies know and sometimes use as leverage during settlement negotiations.

A Greater Amount of Personal Injury Claims

Partially as a result of this advertising, there have also been an increased number of personal injury claims in the Orange County across the country. While most of these claims are legitimate, many insurance carriers feel that they need to protect themselves by offering small settlements or allowing more cases to go to litigation in an effort to weed out claims that are trivial or fraudulent. This of course, will make legitimate claims more difficult to settle, as well.

There Are Now More Defense Attorneys

The above factors have both contributed to the third major factor hindering Orange County personal injury claims negotiation: the increase in available defense attorney for the insured and the insurance company. With more defense attorneys working, insurance companies are able to hire attorneys for much cheaper than they would have in the past. This in turn, has made insurance companies generally more willing to litigate than they were in the past and thus less willing to settle in order to avoid litigation.

These factors are among the biggest reasons that as a victim of an accident, it is absolutely vital that you have an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney representing you. You deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Call experienced Orange County personal injury attorney Samer Habbas at (888) 848-5084 for a free consultation.
