Once the question of "Do I need an injury attorney" has been adequately answered, the next information you need is what qualifications should be looked for in a lawyer. There are many personal injury attorneys to choose from. How do you know which one gives you the best chance for the financial compensation you need and deserve? At D'Alessandro & Wright, LLC, we believe there are several key characteristics you should be certain of.
Any attorney you retain should be experienced in and concentrate on personal injury law. A lawyer who is new to the field will may not fully understand the full compensation and damages that could be pursued. Neither will they know what it takes to obtain that compensation. When given the choice, you would probably prefer to have an experienced mechanic repair your vehicle. Similarly, you will be better served and have more confidence in a law firm who has worked on personal injury matters for a good number of years or even decades.
No firm can guarantee that all cases will be resolved in the best manner possible. The attorney you use should, however, have an established record of success in resolving personal injury situations of all types. While any firm can say they get results, you are within your rights to ask to see outcomes of actual cases. If an attorney can't show you real examples of settlements and verdicts they have achieved, we recommend that you look for another advocate.
Our attorneys have more than 25 years of experience in successfully resolving personal injury cases. Throughout these years, we have learned what does and does not work in establishing liability in a personal injury claim. We have a thorough understanding of how insurance companies operate and how to negotiate maximum compensation for our clients. As recognition of our high ethical standards and the quality of our legal skills, our firm has achieved an AV® rating by Martindale-Hubbell®. We are also accomplished litigators and have been recognized by the American Trial Lawyers Association's Top 100 Trial Lawyers. If you have been injured in a car, pedestrian or motorcycle accident we want you to rest assured that the Warwick personal injury attorney who represents you is a proven in their field.
In addition to vehicular accidents, we represent those injured through premises liability incidents, nursing home abuse, medical malpractice, defective products, dangerous drugs, birth defects and many other personal injury situations. As work within the building trade is the most common occupation in Warwick, we also provide help to those who have suffered construction injuries.
Some of the outcomes we have produced for our clients include: a $2,753,652 arbitration award for a wrongful termination of a construction contract, a $900,000 settlement in a wrongful death medical malpractice case, a $750,000 jury verdict for a product liability situation and a $310,000 settlement in a motor vehicle accident case. We have obtained other substantial awards for a full range of cases from slip and fall accidents to bicycle collisions and more. We take pride in what we have achieved for our clients and are committed to further assisting those who have been wrongfully injured.
You do not have to be physically injured in order for us to file a claim or engage in personal injury litigation on your behalf. There are non-physical losses that a person can suffer which can give rise to claims for compensation. If your reputation has been attacked or someone has caused emotional distress to you or a member of your family, this may be grounds for a case. Another example could be the crime of assault in which you were not physically harmed but feared that you would be. These types of cases require the services of a knowledgeable attorney in order to be favorably resolved.
Please understand that insurance companies or defendants in personal injury lawsuits will be defended by their own attorneys. These lawyers will do their best to limit the compensation and damages you receive, regardless of how deserving you may be. It is routine for an insurance company to offer a settlement that is well below the value of your case. These and other tactics are commonly used to deny valid claims or lessen their value. It is vital, therefore, that you are represented by a team that understands how to win and has a track record of success.
