It is widely known in the Pittsburgh legal community that only a small percentage of medical malpractice and personal injury cases are brought to court. However, if you are involved in one of the cases that are tried in court, it is crucial that you have one of the best trial lawyers on your side. Why? According to an article published in the Boston Globe, many attorneys have no trial experience, which is one of the things insurance companies look at when making offers. Insurance adjusters know who does, and who does not, go to trial and the same case with an attorney with no trial experience may seem worthless to an insurance company.
WHAT DOES A TRIAL ATTORNEY DO?
The trial attorney’s job is to persuade a jury of the facts in a case, and to display them in a way that best supports the client’s position. Preparing for a trial can take a trial attorney several months. The trial itself also requires a tremendous amount of work on the lawyer’s part. In court, trial attorneys argue motions, meet with judges, prepare scheduling orders, select jurors, and argue cases. Out of court, trial attorneys review files and scheduling orders, contact witnesses, take depositions, and meet with clients.
