Preparing Your Construction Accident Case for Trial
It is common knowledge that the great majority of personal injury cases settle before they ever go to trial, but Attorney Douglas V. Stoehr prepares every case as is if it were headed for the courtroom. This preparation alerts the insurance company that Attorney Stoehr is prepared, and often results in a higher settlement.
Our firm brings in top-notch experts and investigators to research the facts surrounding your construction accident. This includes forensic engineers specially trained to determine the cause of the accident and to pinpoint responsibility on the negligent defendant.
When insurance companies and the people responsible for your injuries see this, they often make decisions — like offering a favorable settlement — that keep your case out of court.
