Instead, of looking at obvious red flags, they ignore them and end up, many times, getting less financial compensation for all of their damages they suffered from their accident. This article seeks to explore the 7 red flags to watch for when hiring a personal injury lawyer in 2021. A lot has changed during the practice of personal injury law from just a couple of years ago. Here we go.   1. Your Car Accident Lawyer Has Zero To Little Civil Trial Experience. Insurance companies track who goes to trial and who does not. They know that the attorneys who have never gone into trial are the ones they can get to cave. They know that these personal injury lawyers are afraid of facing juries. They usually identify them as mill-law-firm, one that spends more time advertising then practicing law. If your case has any complexities to it, they know that they can take advantage of those complexities.  The first question is how many civil jury trials have you first-chaired? If you do not see any trial experience, then that personal injury lawyer might be leaving money on the table. No, not many attorneys go to trial anymore.

Why Should I Sue For A Car Accident? People hire a car accident lawyer to handle the fallout from a car accident for various reasons. Some people just do not want to deal with the insurance company. Others want to feel they have control of the situation by hiring a car accident law firm to walk them through the whole process. Some people hire a car accident lawyer after they feel the insurance company disrespects them with a lowball offer. In fact one Garrick A. McFadden’s Esq, first personal injury clients was a pregnant woman who was only being offered $500.00 over her medical bills. Did I mention that this beautiful woman was pregnant at the time of her Scottsdale car accident? She was so mad that that she was determined to hire the best Phoenix personal injury lawyer that she could find, and she choose Garrick. To us this was a no brainer, because the insurance company was not being fair with her. She did not want to hire a car accident lawyer, but her hand was forced. Garrick added value to her claim and put her at ease. Garrick even respected one of her wishes, which he was totally against…but she wanted to do it regardless. She wanted to pay her health insurance company back whatever amount they had requested from her. Garrick could have negotiated the bill, but this was her wish and was important to her so it was important to Garrick. GAMESQ, PLC’s lawyers listen… Read More »Why Should I Sue For A Car Accident

Self Driving Car Accidents: As we move towards self-driving cars one question we have not asked and explored is how long do these cars last.

The used vehicle market is how many Americans acquire their cars. Yet, what will happen when a self driving car is three years old. Will someone be willing to obtain the car for the last year of service. If the self driving car is involved in a motor vehicle accident who should be held liable? Should it be the owner of the vehicle or the manufacturer? Will car insurance companies even cover a self-driving car when it gets older than four years. Will the federal or state governments subsidize the cost of these vehicles even though they might be priced above what a working family can afford? Self Driving Car Crashes Since these vehicles are programmed by humans the algorithm carries in it, the implicit and explicit bias that the programmer have.
