  • Buyer Beware - What You Need To Know About Lawyer Advertising You need to know a few things about lawyer advertising. For example, if you look through the yellow pages you’ll see that the ads placed by attorneys all say essentially the same thing. Very few of them actually give good useful information to make it easier for you to choose a good lawyer for your case. Although the yellow pages are a good place to get names of attorneys, you need to be aware of a number of potential issues when it comes to lawyer advertising.
  • Do You Really Need An Attorney To Help You Handle Your Accident Case You definitely do not need an attorney for every small accident case. What is a small accident case? There are no hard and fast rules about how these cases are defined. But this report will help you understand how these cases are evaluated so you can decide for yourself.
  • REPORT: How To Determine The Value Of A Personal Injury Case There is no magic formula or process by which someone can predict with certainty the amount of money that a personal injury case may be worth. If there were, then society wouldn’t have a need for insurance adjustors, personal injury lawyers, etc. One could simply apply the “formula” to come up with the value of a case. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Insurance companies and injured persons rarely agree on a figure. This report will give you some idea of the factors involved in determining the value of a case.
  • Personal Injury Legal Process Roadmap - The Legal Process For Personal Injury Cases More and more insurance companies are taking a very aggressive stance in settling accident claims. Certain carriers have a reputation for making unreasonably low settlement offers, even if the injuries are severe. It may (in some cases it is not) be advantageous to file a lawsuit immediately. Once a lawsuit is filed, the court will set certain milestones and deadlines. This report will help you understand this process.
  • Looking For A Lawyer - The Truth About Attorney Finder Websites and Directories Are you looking for a lawyer? Using the internet to find one? Beware of websites that say they will help you locate, evaluate, and choose a lawyer. These sites are not always what they appear to be. They are not a public service. More often than not these sites are simply paid advertising spots.
  • Mandatory Arbitration - The Alternative To Trial The purpose of Mandatory Arbitration is to reduce court congestion, expedite the litigation process, and to provide a cost effective resolution of civil claims. In Washington, most of the superior courts have adopted a program known as “mandatory arbitration.” Arbitration is another way to resolve a case instead of going to trial. With arbitration, the court appoints an “arbitrator” who will decide the case by listening to testimony, reviewing evidence, and then issuing an award. The arbitrator is usually an experienced attorney or retired judge. This report helps you to understand the mandatory arbitration process.
  • My Attorney - What A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do For You I can’t speak for every personal injury attorney, but I can tell you what I do for my own clients in any given case. This report offers you a list and description of what I believe to be the "standard of legal care" in a personal injury case.
  • Tough Questions - Questions the Insurance Adjusters Don't Want You To Ask Most insurance adjusters are highly trained adversaries, although most people would never think this, at least not in the beginning of the claims process. Now, most people understand that the insurance company’s job is to make money and that one way it does this is by settling claims for less than the claim is worth. Yet, most people are unaware of how sophisticated, yet simple, the methods the carrier will utilize to help it accomplish this goal. Here are some questions that often will make the insurance company squirm. No, the carrier doesn’t like it when you ask these questions because it either cannot answer the question or worse, the answer is one they do not like to hear.
