You would think that if the case warranted it most insurance companies defending Fort Lauderdale, Florida accident cases would wisely choose to settle before the risk of paying the injured person’s damages results in having to incur significant attorney’s fees and costs in addition to paying the injured person’s damages.
Unfortunately, many insurance companies consider the risk worth taking and prefer to gamble that Fort Lauderdale, Broward County juries will return a verdict for less than what the injured accident victim might otherwise deserve. Many insurance companies have a business philosophy that is described as “a million dollars for defense, a penny for settlement”. This corporate philosophy is motivated by the insurance company’s greed and immoral concern for sending the message to Florida personal injury attorneys and accident victims that if you intend to sue their company be prepared to try your case because this insurance company will never settle regardless of fairness, nor a concern for the needs of the injured victims and their family, nor for right or wrong.
It is important for an accident victim and their family to choose the right personal injury attorneys who are committed to obtaining the right compensation for their clients. Fortunately, not all Fort Lauderdale, Florida personal injury attorneys have the same commitment to seeking justice for their injured clients. And I regret to opine that many of the typical mass media TV, billboard type law firms seek to collect many thousands of accident/injury clients and by doing so, either lack the ability or commitment to seek full justice for each of their injury clients – like this law firm has been committed for the last 30 years!
