How Selective Are Personal Injury Attorneys When Taking New Cases?

Over the years, the media has portrayed personal injury attorneys as opportunists who cannot wait to get their hands on the next case. In some instances it seems as if these attorneys try to create cases out of tin air and will go to great lengths to make sure they have a constant stream of new clients. However, this image is far from the truth.

At Cohn & Swartzon our fees are contingent on our clients winning their case. Therefore, we are going to assess the risks of accepting a case carefully. Contrary to what you may hear in the media, the fact that a lawyer is going to be paid a percentage of any recovery actually discourages frivolous litigation. No lawyer in his or her right mind is going to take on a frivolous case and then work hundreds of hours on it for zero gain.

Considering we work with leading experts in specialized fields of study, and invest the necessary resources to understand what happened in each case in order to maximize recovery, we do not work on cases that have little potential to succeed. If we elect to take your case, we provide ethical and aggressive representation. We are selective in the cases we take, and are thus able to invest the necessary time, resources and sweat equity into cases than attorneys would who might operate higher-volume practices.

We only take contingency fee cases because we believe in sharing the risk of taking on the case with our clients. You can be sure that there is never a fee unless we win your case. Our firm is driven by our personal dedication to our clients and their future. These cases, particularly serious injury cases, can be not only painful but extremely emotional for the injured and their families; the innocent victim may never again enjoy the quality of life they had prior to the negligent act of the responsible party. Moving forward with the ability to access the best quality medical care, the most effective treatments, both currently and those released in the future, is our main concern. We will aggressively pursue compensation for damages that will allow our clients the best possible future, under the circumstances. For this reason, we encourage you to contact an Orange County personal injury lawyer at our firm today.
