Certified Specialist in Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Law
Less than 2% of all Personal Injury Lawyers are Certified Specialists in Arizona. In order to achieve the status of a Certified Specialist, an Attorney must demonstrate a superior knowledge and ability in the area of law in addition to other very important factors. With this distinction, Chris Zachar has demonstrated excellence in his abilities while maintaining his Certified Specialist status.
The Importance of a Trial Lawyer
Personal Injury Attorney: After a difficult injury, a good Injury Lawyer can be a big part of getting your life back together. If you’ve been seriously hurt as the result of someone else’s misconduct, your life has probably become much more complicated overnight. How will you get to work? How will you pay your bills if you can’t work? What about your family? How do you deal with all the insurance forms? You know you need a good Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer to help you sort all this out, but how will you choose one?
Injury Lawyers are not all equally suited to handle your case, so it’s crucial that you get help from one with extensive trial experience. Generally speaking, it’s possible to divide Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyers working in the private sector into “trial lawyers” (also called “litigators”) and “non-trial lawyers”. Trial lawyers, as the name implies, direct their efforts to digging deep and preparing a case as though it will be necessary to take it to court (indeed, this is the best way to keep it out of court—let the other side know you are serious), while non-trial lawyers spend most of their time trying to arrange things to avoid court at all costs. The problem is, if the insurance companies aren’t convinced you are serious, they often won’t offer you anything close to a fair settlement for your case. Which type of lawyer is best for you?
The best Personal Injury Lawyers are trial lawyers. Personal injury cases, even if and when they settle out of court, are always handled in the context of taking the case to trial. Even though all Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyers have to go to law school and pass the same bar exam, what they do in their practice defines their specialty. Trial practice was once a fairly common skill for Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyers to have, but it is becoming increasingly rare as a result of increasing numbers of lawyers and decreasing numbers of trials. This means it’s more important than ever to make sure that the Injury Attorney you get help from is a litigator. A true trial lawyer.
Many cases are dropped or settled before reaching a final resolution, but of the remainder of cases that were actually resolved in Maricopa county in 2008, less than 1 percent of the civil cases were resolved with a jury trial. Less than 2 percent of the criminal cases (which are by far the minority of all cases) were resolved in a jury trial. These statistics are very average compared to other counties in Arizona and elsewhere, so finding an Injury Lawyer with substantial experience with personal injury trials can be difficult.
Experience counts when it comes to looking for a Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyer. There is no better choice than having a Certified Specialist represent you. Any attorney can say that they do personal injury cases, but in Arizona, a lawyer cannot be a Certified Specialist without being a “trial lawyer”. These Specialists devote their careers to personal injury cases, and thus, have a great advantage. Conversely, lawyers who have limited trial experience (and there are many; it’s not uncommon for lawyers to been practicing for 10 or more years without ever going to court) may not be ready or able to handle your case when the insurance company and its lawyers start to play hard ball.
So how can you be sure that your Injury Lawyer In Phoenix is a trial lawyer?
The State Bar of Arizona does offer services helping to match clients with suitable Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyers, but the best way is to ask questions, such as:
- How many cases have YOU tried?
- In which courts?
- What results did YOU get?
- How many of those cases were cases similar to mine?
An experienced trial lawyer will be happy discuss their experience. Inexperienced lawyers will usually admit their inexperience and explain what special steps they plan to take when they approach your case to make up for it. Very few Phoenix Personal Injury Lawyers would ever try to deceive their clients about their prior experience because in addition to being highly unethical conduct, it could cost them their license to practice. This “resume padding” is dishonest and unethical.
