The right personal injury lawyer can make the difference between being financially devastated and being able to take care of your family's future.
Insurance companies do not give money away. The only way to get fair compensation for your injuries is to force them to pay you. The only thing that makes insurance companies pay is the threat of a big jury verdict.
If you want to get a fair amount, you need a personal injury attorney who is not afraid to go to trial to get you what you deserve.
Many personal injury lawyers advertise themselves as being aggressive and fighting for their clients.
Ask them what their last trial was and ask them what their recent jury verdicts were.
If a personal injury lawyer doesn't actively file and try cases, keep on looking for a personal injury lawyer for your case who does, as you will rarely get a fair recovery amount with an attorney who is just working for a settlement.
Hiring a trial lawyer is the only way to make sure you get a fair amount for your personal injury case.
Mike files a lawsuit in most of his cases, as that is what gets insurance companies to pay, and if they don't make a fair enough offer you can take your case to a jury.

I make it a point to keep on top of my email. This process can be stressful and I don't want you losing sleep over a question I can easily answer.
I selected Michael Colbach based on his personal attention to my case. When you work with him, you speak DIRECTLY to him, no answering machines, no messages to a sectary or other associates. His office staff are extremely professional, and communicate in a timely matter. Mike is upfront with your expectations on your settlement, the real timeline, when and what to expect... and goes beyond any other attorney would do for you. His fee was less than any other, and I received MORE than any other attorney would have gotten me. -->More
