If your injury was a result of an auto accident, of which 50% of personal injury litigation cases are, then find the right attorney for the job.

However, sometimes that won’t be the case and so you’ll want a lawyer who is willing and prepared to fight for you in a courtroom. This may sound redundant since that is what lawyers do, right? Except there are many attorneys who may have never seen the inside of a courtroom. Your attorney should be ready in any event during your case.
