All my cases are BIG – but that includes some lawsuits that settle for as little as $3,000.00.
As you’ve probably figured out, attorneys like to look over each other’s websites. (That may be why a lot of them look like each other. Hopefully, you think mine is a little different.)
But when I look at my friends’ websites, one thing I keep seeing is “I don’t take small cases.” And I look at the statement a few different ways.
First, any attorney who says that his client has a “small” case will probably wind up with a disappointed client. If you came to me with something big enough that you would sit down and discuss it with me, and then give several strangers the right to review your medical records, it’s a big deal to you. And it better be a big deal to your lawyer.
Second, most people need a lawyer before they realize just how hurt they are.
A lot of cases that start out looking not that “large” turn out to be big deals.
The two sore wrists from grabbing the steering wheel that wind up needing surgery, and settle for policy limits of $100,000. The lawsuit that starts with a sore knee turns into a personal disaster that requires 5 surgeries, and settles for $500,000.00.
A nice lady that the insurance adjuster offered $2,000.00 winds up having operations on her shoulder and back, and settling her case for $93,000.00.
I could go on forever.
Third, if I agree to work for you – even if you’re all better after a thousand dollars in medical bills and three weeks of physical therapy – it means I think your case is pretty interesting, that I think I can help you, and that I also think we can both make some money.
And finally, I’ve made a lot of money for people on both “big” cases and what the other lawyers are calling “small” cases. So they’re all BIG to me.
I have been a lawyer over 30 years. All my cases are BIG. If you’ve been injured in an accident, talk with an experienced Cincinnati Injury Attorney about the case. Call me, William Strubbe, at 513-621-4775.
Because all situations are different, and because there may be other facts pertaining to your case that I don’t know about, you should not rely on this answer for legal advice. I am not your attorney, and no lawyer client relationship has been formed.
