Ben Abbott and his firm tried more cases to a jury verdict in 2011 than anyone other law firm in the State of Texas. What that means for the client is better settlements and more money in their pockets.
An insurance company will try to pay as little as it can to settle a case. When a low offer is made (and it always is) the attorney has two choices: either take a low offer, or file a lawsuit.
Most insurance companies will settle a case for top dollar right at trial, or just before trial. Some cases require a trial, in cases where there is a dispute as to who is at fault, or, where the claimant has a prior injury history.
When hiring an attorney, the most important consideration to getting a fast settlement is this: is my attorney able to try my case and get me a large verdict.
If you hire Ben Abbott and his firm, the results speak for themselves. With 114 cases tried in Tarrant and Dallas counties between 1/1/11 and 3/30/12, you know that you are getting an attorney who won't quit.
The only way to strong arm, and to hammer an insurance company is in court. Your attorney must be trial tested.
