Hear From a Winning Warshafsky Attorney

Hit an Apple

Gerald Bloch | 40 sec

I’m attorney Gerald Bloch of Warshafsky law. Football player or actress? You wanna see what kind of injury does to a perfect human being and his family, hit an apple with a baseball bat. You wanna see what hiring a sign and settle lawyer does to a perfect human being and his family with an injury like this hit an apple over a blacktop pavement on a scorching August afternoon. Short of winning a trial, there was no way Maria’s dad would be cared for like any human being in this situation should be, and what would become of his family. Two weeks into trial the insurer of the liable party agreed to a massive settlement fearing Warshafsky and our case, and human beings.

Parsing Settlement Mills from Real Wisconsin Personal Injury Lawyers

Why Fast-Settling Personal Injury Attorneys are Preferred By Insurance Companies

Your lawyer’s demonstrated willingness to go to trial affects how much money an insurance company will offer. From car accidents to medical malpractice to product liability, insurers have little incentive to offer more money to an accident victim with an attorney who shies away from the courtroom.

At its core, an insurance company runs off of probabilities. They pay actuaries substantial salaries to calculate the expected dollar value and likelihood of an accident, injury or illness occurring. To an insurance company, your life-changing car accident is a predictably frequent data-point. With millions of data-points to study, an actuary will calculate the expected payouts of a given policy with remarkable precision. These expenses are passed on to the policyholders, and the margin becomes insurance company profits.

An insurance company policy is like a casino slot machine. Each pull of the lever yields a predictable payoff. Some players will get more money than they put in--most won’t. As long as the lever is pulled enough times the house will profit enough to build a luxury hotel adorned with statues and riches.

Abandoning the metaphor, insurance companies pay money out of their best interest. Small, predictable settlements are more profitable than paying a legal defense team to fight the possibility of a multi-million dollar jury verdict. Accordingly, insurance companies PROFIT from a new legal-market trend toward the “settlement mill”.

Settlement Mill Law Firms Explained

Settlement mills are an increasingly prevalent type of personal injury law firm. These firms have low numbers of practicing attorneys in relation to the number of claims they handle. They achieve this feat by delegating substantial responsibility to less qualified personnel and avoiding the litigation wherever possible. A settlement mill, like an insurance company, thus profits by avoiding the possibility of a sustained court battle. If this has you rethinking your representation, you are not alone.

Every decision a top Milwaukee personal injury lawyer makes should be in the best interest of the CLIENT. To procure the most money for the injured, an accident attorney should have a proven history of preparing for full-scale litigation from the very first meeting. Extensive trial experience has two primary benefits: (1.) An experienced trial attorney garners larger settlement offers from insurance companies who understand personal injury law. (2.) The lawyer will be able to better evaluate the costs and benefits of accepting the offer.
