Expertise and strong reputation in Salem, Massachusetts
In addition, due to his expertise and his reputation in the legal community, Attorney Muggeo is regularly called upon by the local courts to serve as a neutral conciliator in evaluating claims and assisting in the settlement of personal injury matters.
A proven trial attorney has much more negotiating leverage
Muggeo & Associates lawyers have extensive trial experience and will approach the case much differently than an attorney or firm that never goes to trial. We begin preparing for the possibility of a trial as soon as we take the case. This means conducting a full investigation to gather all of the important facts and evidence to show that the defendant is liable, and it might also mean calling on various experts whose testimony can lend additional credence to your claim.
Clearly, you want the lawyer who is willing to go to trial, because that alone is often enough to bring the other side to the negotiating table. If, on the other hand, you decide to go with an attorney or firm that the insurance company knows will never go to trial, what incentive does the insurer have to make you a reasonable offer?
