You definitely want a trial lawyer to represent you because us litigators can really
take it to the carriers if we have to and as a result we get better settlements. Insurance companies in bigger cases will typically try to hold onto their money as long as possible until they are threatened by a trial and then they will usually pay more. So
be sure you hire an attorney who is not only a great negotiator but a litigator able
to take a carrier to task if necessary to get a better result for you.
