First, when you are injured you want to keep as much documented as possible: pictures, videos, and/or witness statements. All this is evidence that a lawyer can use to help provide specifics for your case. More than likely the party you are suing will offer a settlement. Only about 4-5 % of cases actually go to trial. This is important because attorneys understand that trial is really stressful. Personal injury cases happen after some kind of accident which is not your fault, or at least, the majority is not your fault. As you now know, it is more likely to get the compensation you need if you choose a really good San Francisco personal injury attorney.
