Why Your Personal Injury Attorney Should Have Trial Experience


It can be nerve-wracking and upsetting when you have been injured in an unintentional injury accident. You may be shaken and scared about your health and well-being. Depending on how severe your injuries are, the only thing on your mind, if you are able to even think clearly, is getting medical attention.

Still, when the dust settles and you have sought medical treatment and are ready to start recovering from your personal injury event, the work ahead of you is far from over. You may be owed financial compensation from the party that caused your accident, and to obtain that compensation, you will have to take legal action by filing a claim.

There are several nuances and steps to take within the personal injury claims process. It can be overwhelming, especially when you are hurt. But, it is your right to have an attorney help you throughout each step so that you can be sure that things will be done correctly and that you have the best chance of obtaining the highest amount of compensation possible.

In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Attorney Joseph Monaco is a South Jersey personal injury trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience representing individuals who have been harmed in personal injury and wrongful death cases. When searching for an attorney, experience matters, including the time an attorney has litigated in court.

Why Trial Experience is So Important When Selecting a Personal Injury Attorney 

When you file your personal injury claim, there are no guarantees of how it will go. With a lawyer by your side who knows how to negotiate and who has a background of success securing fair compensation for others, then you know that you are best positioned for the most desirable outcome when it comes to settlement negotiations.

Usually, a personal injury claim will conclude with a settlement. The majority of personal injury cases end this way. Still, there are some that will not be able to come to a settlement agreement, and as a result, they will go to court and have a trial.

Even though there is a high likelihood that your case will settle outside of court, you must still be prepared for anything. Having an attorney with strong negotiation skills is essential, but so is having an attorney who has trial experience. Should your case go to court, you want to have the most competent and effective representation advocating on your behalf and for your interests.
