The Advantages of Choosing a Local Personal Injury Law Firm

No one ever plans to get hurt on any given day. When they do, they deserve to be treated fairly by a firm who can manage the entire situation on their behalf. They also deserve representation capable of getting them the highest possible compensation for their case, so they can move forward with their lives.

When people get hurt, their lives are disrupted physically, emotionally, and financially. Stress and mounting pressure make it difficult to know where to turn and what to do next.

Here are 3 important tips to remember if you or a loved one get hurt:

  1. Look for a personal injury attorney who is specialized in personal injury vs a general practice law firm.
  2. Does the attorney have long standing community involvement? In other words, are they local?
  3. What is his/her trial experience and track record of success?

You wouldn’t let a general practice physician do your spine surgery.

While general practice doctors do a tremendous service to patients who visit urgent care, their knowledge spans treating illnesses and providing preventative care. Spinal surgery is far more specialized in that specific area of the human body.

Similar to the practice of medicine, a law firm who is exclusively specialized in one area of the law is going to have a deep practical and strategic knowledge of that legal field. As Chris Rodd says, “Repetition brings value in knowledge and experience.”

The advantage of being local

Having a local attorney who has long been entrenched in the community represents a sizable advantage. Chris Rodd, of The Rodd Firm, was born and raised in Southwest Georgia. He knows its law and its people. As an experienced litigator, Chris knows the juries, judges, bailiffs, and key resources throughout the community.

Not all local firms are equal, however. A commitment to leading edge technology in order to manage critical details of each case efficiently is essential in 2023. Manual processes and paper workflow lead to mistakes, unnecessary time lags, and dropped balls. People who are hurt deserve better, and The Rodd Firm is committed to leveraging technology to better serve our clients.

Trial experience

Not everyone likes to try cases. In fact, many firms find it more efficient and easier to do a higher volume of cases by settling. At The Rodd Firm, we know that settling cases isn’t always the answer. Our expertise in trying cases successfully has earned a reputation with insurance companies that we will pursue justice for our clients.

We don’t believe in pressuring anyone to take the ‘final offer.’ While there is risk in going to trial, our experience leads to results that make a difference in our clients’ lives.

When people get hurt, they aren’t expecting the physical, emotional, and financial stress that follows. When it happens to people in Southwest Georgia, our priority is that individual. We manage the complexities of their injury case and help get their case resolved, so they can move on with their life.
