One thing I love about our firm is that we are willing to, and frequently enjoy, taking on more challenging cases. By “more difficult” I mean liability isn’t quite as clear as we would like for it to be.
Don’t get me wrong: There is a big difference between a meritless claim and a claim that is simply more difficult to prove, and we absolutely do not handle meritless claims.
We work hard to prove a valid claim
However, we are more than willing to listen to our clients when we perceive there has been a faulty determination of liability, or other extenuating circumstances which would support a valid, albeit difficult to prove, claim.
We have successfully had police and incident reports amended and had traffic tickets withdrawn. We’ve tracked down surveillance and other video evidence which helped to show our client indeed was not to blame. Additionally, we’ve relentlessly pursued witnesses to testify as to our client’s actions.
Difficult cases don’t always help the bottom line
Some law practices might say this sort of attorney time and effort isn’t “worth the trouble.” These firms have adopted a churn-and-burn business model.
This model minimizes the amount of time and resources possible on each file, with little to no actual attorney time. These firms frequently turn away difficult claims, unless of course, they are high-profile claims which would lead to media attention.
At Luhrsen Goldberg, we see things differently. It is these “difficult” files that allow us to spread our wings further. We seek to truly help the clients who come to us with nowhere else to turn.
Our business is largely referral-based, and there is a reason for that.
Honesty, integrity, gumption, drive and vision are necessary to successfully manage a client-oriented injury law firm.
