In High Point, there are many personal injury attorneys, but not all of them have experience handling larger injury cases. Most attorneys in High Point, are “general practitioners”. This means that they will take any type of case that walks through the door like a criminal, traffic, family law, estates, etc. The days of the jack of all trades lawyer is over. Personal injury law is very complicated and difficult. Attorneys can no longer dabble in injury law and do a good job.
I actually worked in High Point for many years as the Director of Litigation for Crumley & Associates. I had four lawyers and five paralegals that reported to me. I have since moved to Greensboro and started my own firm, but while I was in High Point I handled many cases. Most of the cases that I have handled were car wreck injury cases. I have probably litigated, settled or tried more than 500 injury cases in the High Point area. I think that High Point juries are also very fair. All juries are tough because of today’s insurance lobby. However, High Point has a lot of blue-collar hard-working people. Such jurors will not “give money away”, but they know how to be fair. That is what I ask for from a jury.
Are you looking for a personal injury attorney in High Point? There are some good attorneys to choose from. Just do something simple, ask them what types of cases they are working on and what is their record. Don’t settle for some attorney who hasn’t tried a case in the last year. They will tell you that they settle their cases instead. Anyone can settle a case. All you have to do is take what the insurance company is offering. I have a newsflash for you, most of the time they don’t voluntarily offer enough. So, many attorneys are just taking the insurance offer and forcing it on you. Also, if your High Point attorney hasn’t tried a case recently how does the attorney know the real value? Juries set case value on injury cases, not insurance companies.
If you were in a fender bender, don’t worry about it. Most any attorneys will be fine. In fact, you may not need an attorney at all. Take a look at my 10 Tips on Handling Car Wreck Cases for some general information on how to handle such injury claims.
