When choosing a Phoenix area personal injury lawyer it’s important to find a specialist, somebody who specializes in personal injury or wrongful death, and someone who also has trial experience.
Plattner Verderame has a wealth of trial experience. Insurance companies know it. It increases the value of settlements for our clients because they know we’ll take them to court, and make them be fair with our clients if they don’t want to offer a fair settlement.

What should I do after I hire a lawyer?
If you’re hiring an injury attorney, once you hire the lawyer, the most important thing is that you get better. You hire an attorney so that we can handle your case and you can handle healing. What you need to do is listen to your doctors, and be honest with your doctors. That means don’t exaggerate your symptoms or injuries, but also don’t minimize them.
Make sure that your doctors know exactly what’s going on so that when they give your medical records to your attorneys, your attorneys have a good understanding of what your injuries are. You leave the case to the attorneys. You just focus on getting better.
