How Does David vs. Goliath Relate to Your Personal Injury and Accident Case?

People who have personal injury and accident cases should not face the giant insurance company alone. David did not face the giant alone, and you should not either. As a young man, “David and Goliath” was, and still is, my favorite story in the Bible. It has provided inspiration to me in life and what I do day in and day out for injured people now. The way to survive and defeat the giants is through early and thorough trial preparation in each and every case in an effort to prove and demonstrate liability, injuries and damages, overcome defenses, and add value to the case to maximize recovery. Sometimes retaining the services of the right medical, psychological, legal, financial, engineering, accident reconstruction, investigative, and other experts can help this mission. This puts the personal injury and accident lawyer and law firm in the best position to prove and demonstrate that full compensation in the case serves to protect the public by sending a message that people and businesses that violate rules and expose the public to unnecessary danger will be required to pay in full measure. In this way, Goliath loses.
